πŸ‘‹ Say hello to our new Chrome Extension.

‍

Many of you are familiar with the Clay Chrome Extension β€” perfect for turning pages of unstructured data into structured lists. Last month, we invited our community to test out the beta, bringing Clay even closer to the browser by allowing you to map entire webpages yourself. Your feedback was formative, and we are giddy to share that the new extension is now live and available for download in the Google Chrome store.

Some new enhancements include:

  • Map your own lists. If a list isn't detected or you want to pull in a few more attributes, you can now map your own lists and export them to Clay.
  • ‍Map page recipes. Instead of manually copy-pasting the same data from similarly structured pages into your table, pull important attributes from any website into Clay using just a URL.
  • More precise list auto-detection. See a list you like on a website? Pop open the extension to check if it's been auto-detected, now with cleaner, better results.

⚽️ Golazo, aka Score.

Seeing our users set up powerful outbound and inbound workflows, we've learned first hand that backlogs of leads are a headache and a half to prioritize. If you're sitting on a backlog of people, emails or companies, Clay's powerful Formula column can now automate away the endless hours spent weeding out the unfit.

Codify any conditions to automatically identify and take action on high quality leads, whether updating a lifecycle stage, adding to an email sequence, or pushing to a qualified leads table. Here is a little glimpse of what you can do:

πŸ₯… Interested in using a checkbox to identify qualified leads based on certain properties? Check out our Formula Cheat Sheet to get started.

‍

πŸ““ More inspirations for your automations

We're continuing to build out our library of Sources (streaming live data in to your table), based on your requests and some of our communities best workflows, including most recently:

  • Linkedin People Search. Populate your table by querying for relevant people on Linkedin, searching for the presence of specific data in their profiles e.g. skills, experience keywords.
  • Google Search. Start your table by streaming in top search results for any Google search query, e.g. specific SEO terms.
  • Owler Competitor. Populate your table with a list of up to 50 competitors for a given company domain.

And for those who like to zoom straight through to contacts, we recently released the long awaited...

  • Zoom info β€” Find and enrich contact details with ZoomInfo (requires your own API key).

πŸ’Œ Have a use case for a template you'd like to see that we don't currently support? Request it here!

🐞 Bug improvements

  • Boolean action inputs. Fixed a bug that reverted back a boolean switch in an action's settings
  • Twitter action. Fixed a bug that was returning No Account Found for exact Twitter profiles
  • Performance. Spruced up our internal tooling to further improve performance and keep Clay snappy

‍

πŸ”₯ Up next... Clay 2.0.

We've been working hard behind the scenes to deliver on a smoother end to end flow for you. Whether our sleek new UI, improved workspace search, single record view, or up-and-coming Organization Table, we have a number of changes up our sleeve that will spark joy and drastically cut down the setup time to start automating.Stay tuned and and send us an πŸ‘πŸ‘ emoji if you want a pre-beta sneak peek.
‍

πŸŒ€ Join a team expanding creativity

We're hiring! There's a whole lot that goes into building the first spreadsheet that fills itself, and into abstracting away layers of complexity so anyone can build their own automations and creations. We are incredibly excited to be hiring for the Clay team.

If you have any recommendations please do let us know!

You'll find all open roles here in our Notion.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

This is a quote

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
