There are 2 types of contacts in folk: people & companies.

  • People can be linked to multiple companies

  • Companies have, obviously, multiple people

Companies are automatically enriched on your contacts after you import them.

We detect the email domain (ex: of your contact's primary email and add the corresponding company (ex: Spendesk), with the right logo and company URL.

If you change your contact's primary email, the new detected company will automatically be updated.

You can also link people to companies manually by browsing existing or suggested companies.

Linking people and companies makes folk very powerful. All of the contacts pertaining to one company are centralized in its Company profile and in the People column in the company view. This enables you to get the bigger picture and leverage it to manage account-level data.

In the company profile, you can visualize the list of people with valuable information such as their job title, last interaction date & strongest connection. You can also add notes & reminders at the company-level.

In a group, you have 2 views created by default: all people and all companies, so that you can switch from one list to the other.
