This article explains how CSMs use the Person section in C360/R360. Person section displays the list of people associated with a company/relationship. In the Person section, you can view records of people you interact with, while working with the Customer. Person records include name, phone, email, social media profiles, company, etc. The Person section is designed to display not only contacts at the Company level, but potentially anyone involved in their implementation, such as an external consultant associated with the current company.

You can add, edit, and delete a person associated to the company from the respective C360/R360 pages.

To start using Person section from the C360 page, Admin must configure the Person section in the respective C360 layout that was assigned to the current company’s C360 page. For more information on this for admins, refer Configure Person Section to C360 Layouts.

View Person Details

C360 page is a single source of truth for all the associations of a Person. You can view all the Company or Relationship associations of a Person, from one of the associated C360/R360 pages. For example, an investor might collaborate with three different Companies, and therefore they’ll appear as an associated Person for all three Companies.

You can click any of the Company or Relationship names and navigate to the corresponding C360/R360 pages, in a new tab.

Here, the person section is explained using C360 and the person section in R360 remains same.
