Enhancements for Pobuca PRO & ENTERPRISE users


1. Advanced user access roles & permissions (admin, editor, reviewer)

The Pobuca admin can now set access roles to coworkers. The available roles are the following: admin, editor & reviewer. Admin has full access to all Pobuca functionalities and data. Editor can search, view, import and edit contacts or organizations stored in Pobuca but cannot perform admin tasks. Reviewer can only search and view contacts or organizations stored in Pobuca. If you are the Pobuca admin Get Started here.

2. Share contact lists with external partners (like you do with coworkers)

Until now, you could only invite coworkers (with the same email domain) to join you on Pobuca. Now as a Pobuca admin you can invite external partners as well and share contact lists. Get Started here.

3. Custom fields

Now you can use custom fields for better segmentation of contacts and organizations. Custom fields will help you target your searches and easily extract contact information from Pobuca database. To set custom fields you have to be the Pobuca admin. Get Started here.

4. Set Private contacts

Pobuca is all about sharing but we understand that you need some privacy with specific contacts. When you add a new contact select to be private and then select the ones you want to share with your team turning them into public. You can only change only the contacts you have created/imported. Note: You can't turn public contacts into private!

5. Export data

Automatically export all data stored in Pobuca (contacts, organizations and coworkers) to a Comma Separated File (CSV) or an Excel file. Since security of your contact information is our major concern, only Pobuca admins are allowed to use the export feature. Get Started here.
