Have you ever wondered if anyone on your team already knows an investor or a prospect you want to contact? Or who would be the best person on your team to reach out? No fear, we've got just the thing for that: Strongest connection 🔗

With Strongest Connection you can see who on your team is closest to every one of your contacts in folk. This is powered by an algorithm that calculates your team's history of interactions (emails and calendar events).

  • Strongest Connection is calculated in each group of contacts out of the members that have access to that group.

  • It’s visible in the table view, the Kanban view, and any contact profile, and displayed by default on every newly created table view.

  • Strongest Connection is not yet available on company views or company profiles.

  • If we don't detect any connection in your workspace, the field will be empty.

Use Strongest Connection to optimize your network in three ways:

  1. Introductions: You can use a contact’s strongest connection to ask for an intro and increase your chances of a yes. It’s perfect for commercial prospecting, fundraising or general networking.

  2. Best sender: Several team members speaking to the same contact? Choose the Strongest Connection as the Sender of emails; we all like reading messages from the people we’re closest to. Ideal for PR, fundraising, prospection, event invitations, etc.

  3. Relationship owner: Make the strongest connection the default owner of a contact. It’s an easy way to identify who should be the account owner for a sales flow, the relationship owner for a recruiting process, etc.

Important: When you add a new contact to a group, the Strongest Connection may take a few hours to appear while it is being dynamically calculated.
