Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads. – Dr. Emmett Brown

It’s our goal at FullContact to help you master your contacts, not just manage them. That’s why we’re excited to announce the release of Activity Log after months of work behind the scenes.

What is Activity Log?

Activity Log is a timeline of all of the changes that have happened to your contacts inside of FullContact. Think of it as a paper trail that you can use to track all of the activities inside your address book.

To get started with Activity Log, just click the link inside FullContact and you’ll be able to browse all of the changes that have happened with your contacts. The most recent changes are listed at the top, and each item inside of Activity Log will show you information such as the date of the activity, the person or application that initiated the action and the summary of the activity that was created.

Why it Matters to You

Chances are, if you’ve had an address book for any time at all, you’ve had changes happen and you don’t know why. Maybe someone’s picture got switched, or a contact got deleted by mistake. These little pains can add up to be a big sore spot. Activity Log is your time machine, allowing you to peer into the past and shape the world that your contacts live in today.

Whenever any change happens to your contacts, Activity Log shows you a full breakdown of what happened, what made it happen and the ability to change it back. You can edit any contact that appears in Activity Log, undo a delete action or remove a merge.

Activity Log lets all FullContact users see the past 7 days of changes. If you need to go further back, FullContact Premium users can see up to 6 months of contact history. Premium users also get storage and backup of 25,000 contacts, the ability to sync multiple Gmail accounts, 50 included business card scans each month and much more.

As your network grows, it gets harder to keep track of what’s happening with the people to whom you’ve connected. Activity Log lets you stop worrying about managing your contacts and helps you get started mastering them.

That’s all we have for you today, but stay tuned for more updates soon.
