When uploading a list of companies to Apex, Sales Intelligence, or Target, you can set up the match score threshold to determine which companies can be automatically matched to companies in our database.

Here’s how you can create static lists with match score settings for a list of companies::

Step Description Details

 2 Go to the List page Click Apex in the left pane and select the Account Based Lists option. To create a new list, click New.

  • InsideView ID
  • Company Name

  • State
  • Country
  • Zip

Note: Make sure InsideView ID, Company Name or Website field is in the file because it is mandatory to include at least one of these fields for creating a static list. All other fields are optional.
