NEW: Website Widgets: Topbar
With this release we have started strengthening our repository of widgets to improve website visit to lead conversion. These will complement our landing page & forms to help business generate more lead online.
The first such widget is Topbar. A Topbar sits on the top border of your website or landing pages and helps grab attention to the offer or notification you have published. It has a call to action (CTA) button that can be linked to external pages like lead capture forms.
An example of Topbar is shown below:
You can now easily build topbars in LeadSquared and publish them on your website and landing pages without making any change on the target page.
To start working on topbar, click “Website Widgets” under Marketing menu:

Creating landing pages that render well on web, tablet and mobile has been one of the most common feature requests of LeadSquared users. We are releasing the first version of responsive landing page designer. It is an early BETA release that supports creation of sections and adding HTML and Form blocks.

Configuring your own domain to track email link clicks
Browsers have done few changes off-late that prevent tracking of website visit of people who open your email sent using LeadSquared. The solution is to encode your email tracking links using a URL of your website domain.
You just need to create a cName called “click” in your website domain and point it to go.transfersecure.net and then confirm in My Account -> Settings -> Domain Settings -> Domain Setting for Email Links.
Support for date-time and drop-down in Sales Activity fields
We have added two more data types in custom fields on Sales Activity form: Datetime and Dropdown.
If you add drop-down type of field, select the icon next to field to add values to dropdown:
