ZOHO Phone Checker extension
The Phone Checker extension verifies the phone number for existence in automatic mode.
The extension works with the standard Zoho Crm modules "Contacts" and "Leads".
Zoho Phone Checker validates new leads and/or new leads which have been created or modified today.
When creating or updating records in these modules, the phone numbers are checked, which are placed in the fields "Phone" and "Mobile". The result of the validation is recorded in the fields "Phone Status" and "Mobile Status".
Possible statuses: Real - the number exists, Fake - the number does not exist or is mistaken one. It is also possible to reassign the standard field names in the "Settings -> Fields and Statuses" section.
To start the phone validation again set the fields "Phone Status" and "Mobile Status" in one of the following statuses empty or “None”
“Unknown” is the status of phone validation in case of the check limits expiration. You can check daily up to 10 numbers for free, and up to 1000 emails for paid extension.
