When a customer reaches out to you via different channels, different contacts are created. You might want to group these contacts together in a profile. In this article, we’ll explain everything you need to know about profiles in Trengo.
Profiles in Trengo
Profiles are a collection of contacts and contact moments. In other words, they are a compilation of different contacts and contact moments by the same customer.
An example case in which you want to use profiles, would be when our fictional customer Peter B. reaches out to us via Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp. Two contacts are created: one for Facebook Messenger and one for WhatsApp. To keep an overview of all conversations created by Peter B., we’ll create a profile.
Grouping contacts in profiles
You can add a contact to a profile directly in a ticket. Navigate to the conversation and click ‘Attach profile’ in the right sidebar.
Now, you can choose to look up an already existing profile and add the contact to it, or create a new profile.
Editing a profile

1. Click the ‘Contacts’ icon on the left sidebar and select ‘All profiles’;
2. Create a new profile by clicking ‘Create profile’, or edit one, by looking it up and selecting the preferred profile;
3. If you choose to edit a profile directly by clicking the existing profile, there are several actions you can perform.
