Creating a Card

Clay automatically creates cards for all contacts connected to your integrations. If you wish to manually add a contact that wasn't created automatically for you, you may:

On Mac and Web

  1. Click New Person at the bottom left corner.

On iOS

  1. Tap Add in the Tab bar

Under Person, you can enter:

You can also add a note straight away.

If you enter a name, Clay will create a blank card where you can add additional info. If you enter anything other than a name (i.e. email or Twitter handle), Clay will enrich that card with additional information if possible.

Removing a Card

On Mac and Web

  1. Open a card and click Remove Person at the top

Or,

  1. Search for and select the card(s) you'd like to remove
  2. Right click and select Remove from Clay

On iOS

  1. Open a card and hit Remove on the Action menu

Merging Cards

If you see two or more cards that should be merged, you can quickly do so from the card or Search. Deduplicating results in all card information such as Notes, Reminders, Groups, and card information being merged into one card.

On Mac and Web

  1. Open one of the duplicate cards and click Merge Person at the top
  2. Search for and select the duplicate profiles

Or,

  1. Search for and select the cards you'd like to merge
  2. Right click and select Merge People

Editing Cards

Edit cards to change incorrect data, add information about social profiles, education, and organizations, or update the photo.

On Mac and Web

  1. Open the card and click Edit at the top

On iOS

  1. Open the card and tap Edit in the Action menu

Clearing Cards

You can quickly remove all information from an incorrectly populated card by using the Clear Card functionality. This wipes the card so you can add the correct contact info and/or social profiles which Clay will use to gather the correct information based on your connected accounts.

How long will it take?

Depending on the email(s) and social profile(s) you submitted and what your integrations are, it can take up to a few minutes to repopulate the card. If Clay doesn't retrieve new information immediately, check back in 5-10 minutes, and it'll be up to date.

On Mac and Web

  1. Open the card and click Edit at the top, then Clear Profile under Profile Settings in the right sidebar

On iOS

  1. Open the card and tap Edit in the Action menu
  2. Tap Profile Settings, then Clear Profile
