Managing Lead Access for Sales Users – Groups

Groups feature in LeadSquared allows you to group Sales Users selectively in to different groups based on their location or business units as required.

You can also provide additional permissions to a Sales User/Users to :

1. View Leads owned by other Users within the Group.

2. Modify Leads owned by other Users within the Group.

3. Create/Add new Sales Users to the Group & manage all Users in the Group.

Note:  This feature is available only on selected plans. Please contact LeadSquared sales or support for more details.


Manage Groups option in Settings can be accessed only by users having Administrator role.


This functionality allows you to create, update, delete and manage different Sales Groups in your account.

It also helps you to manage access to leads in different sales groups.

Note: Only Sales Users can be associated in a group all other user roles are independent from manage group feature.

You can restrict a sales user in four different ways as explained below:

a)      View only own leads for the user.

b)      View all leads of a group but can only modify leads the user owns.

c)      View all leads of a group and can modify any lead in group.

d)    Allow the user to create/add new sales users to the group & manage all users in the group.


Group Manager:

Within a group, sales users with permissions to view/modify/create sales user will be termed as Group Managers.

1. A sales user can be added to multiple groups.

2. Permissions can be specified differently for each Group i.e., sales user can be a manager of some group and can be just a Sales User of other.


To create and manage different groups, navigate to My Account > Settings > Users and Permissions> Group.
