Customize your 'Lead Status' field

When you create a lead, you'll be asked to fill out fields to give that lead context within your business. One of those default fields is 'Lead Status.' This asks the question: What stage of your lead qualification process is this record in? The options are:

  • New
  • Open
  • Unqualified
  • Junk

You define what the above statuses mean in your workflow. You can also add custom statuses on this page to tailor Copper to your workflow. 

You can filter leads by 'Lead Status' so you can prioritize your outreach. It's also helpful to create saved filters of certain lead statuses to easily access.
