Accounts Lists

Lists in Composity provide a way for you to group your Accounts in specific segments. Each list contains certain type of “members” related to your business — leads, contacts, suppliers, etc. — and are managed manually by the users. All Accounts in a list have the same page layout, type, custom information for filling in, analytic metrics, custom data and visible modules in the Account Profile.

There are 2 main types of lists you can create in Composity: Individual and Organizational.
