Introduction

The Best Time to Contact feature suggests the best time to reach a customer.

Vtiger’s Calculus AI system recognizes the sequence of time intervals based on touchpoints such as incoming emails, phone calls, and email campaigns. Based on these timings, it compiles with the customer's availability and suggests the same to you. 

You can find the Best Time to Contact in the Summary View of the Contacts and Leads modules.

When you select the Best Time to Contact icon, you will find the timings in the drop-down. 

A green line above each time indicates the maximum and minimum possibility of reaching a contact at that time. It gives you the day and time to reach out to a contact which can increase the probability of getting a response.
