The Files feature in the Settings menu allows the user to add and save content to be used within the account.

Files added here can include PDFs, company logos, videos, thumbnail and other images, etc.

The most common use of this feature is to have the system generate a URL to be used when embedding content within emails and SMS messages sent from the system. The purpose of utilizing the File feature and URL tool is to allow the system to store and host added account content on system servers that may otherwise be too large or if included directly, cause a message to be flagged as spam.

To add a File within this menu, click on the green plus sign at the top of the page.
Next, select the File to be added to the account, from your device/computer files.

Once the selected File has been added to this menu, note the icons generated at the far right:

The circled down arrow icon allows for download of the File to your device/computer.

The plus-sign icon allows duplication of the File within the account.

  • At the Duplicate menu, select from provided options to only duplicate the File or share/send a duplicate of the File as preferred.

The link icon allows the user to copy the system generated URL to the clipboard to then be used to embed the link to this File within emails and SMS messages sent from the system.

This is a powerful tool combining the automation and centralization of ClientTether with the marketing and communication of Thumbtack.

With this integration you will be able to:

  • Have leads directly added to ClientTether from Thumbtack
  • Receive incoming Thumbtack messages
  • Send outgoing Thumbtack messages
  • View Thumbtack conversation within Contact Profile
    • Please note this does not currently include Thumbtack messages you send from within Thumbtack. Only messages you send out of ClientTether, but does include ALL incoming messages from Thumbtack.


Setting up Thumbtack ClientTether integration

To set up the Thumbtack integration please do the following things:

  1. Make sure you have an active Thumbtack Account
  2. Make sure you have a clear Lead Source in ClientTether created for Thumbtack
  3. Reach out to your Thumbtack Account Manager and let them know you would like to activate the ClientTether integration.
    • They must turn on the integration on their end first.
    • Locate your Thumbtack Business ID for inclusion on the ClientTether Side.
    • Paste your Business ID into the Thumbtack Tab in ClientTether.

This may eventually be replaced with an OAUTH Login option to Thumbtack from within ClientTether.

Settings for a Multi-Level Account Structure

There are times when the account structure in ClientTether is different than Thumbtack. For example, you might have a single Thumbtack account that generates leads for all of the greater Denver Metro area. But in ClientTether you might have a Multi-Level account for Denver with 4 subaccounts: North, South, East and West.

In this case follow these steps:

  1. Activate the Thumbtack Add-On for the Multi-level account.
  2. Complete the Business ID and Lead Source in the new Thumbtack Settings tab
  3. Turn on “Share Thumbtack Credentials with Subaccounts
  4. Activate the Thumbtack Add-On in the subaccounts. Notice they will NOT have a Thumbtack Settings tab, because they are using the credentials form the parent account.

Using Thumbtack integration within ClientTether

Once Thumbtack is set up:

Please note outgoing messages sent from within Thumbtack do not display within ClientTether.

Using TetherPay

To fully understand and use TetherPay correctly, please thoroughly go through the following four sections. It is imperative you review this information in order.

Royalty Settings

Once you have been approved you are ready to use TetherPay!

If you have subaccounts, before doing anything else take a minute go to:

  1. The Settings Account tab, where it lists all of your sub accounts.
  2. Go to the edit button by each of your sub accounts.
  3. Look at the CT Pay section at the bottom of the account settings
  4. Make sure the correct boxes are checked/unchecked for royalty payments on tips and Convenience Fees.

Make sure you do this for each of your sub accounts before taking any payments via TetherPay.

Where you can use TetherPay

With TetherPay there are two places where you can accept payments

  1. ClientTether Proposal Version 2
    • Card Payments
    • ACH Payments

    • Record Payments made in Tab
  2. TetherPay Menu link
    • Card Payments
    • ACH Payments
    • Accept Tips
    • Have access to other features available via Stax for TetherPay
    • Will need to manually enter payment on existing proposal to record in ClientTether.

IF you accept payments within the TetherPay Menu Link you will have to manually add them to your proposal V2 if you are accepting a payment tied to an active proposal.

We recommend the following Payment type designations in that situation .

  • Card payment – Select Card
  • ACH – Select Other

You cannot select TetherPay because that will open up a feature to accept a card payment.

Using TetherPay in Proposal Version 2

To utilize the TetherPay option in the proposal system:

  11. Click Pay button
    • If payment information is not correct or incomplete then you cannot click the Pay button.
  12. Client’s will be charged and Payment recorded in ClientTether Proposal.

Please remember that the TetherPay payment type is only for accepting new payments not recording payments you have already received via the TetherPay Tab.

IF you received payment in the TetherPay tab and not in the Proposal system, but want to record the payment to a proposal please select the other for how the payment was made.

  1. Click on the new TetherPay Menu item in your ClientTether header
    • Will be between Calendar and Hello! menu
  2. Login with your Stax Login information
    • Please note there is an option for adding multiple users to TetherPay. We strongly recommend each member of your team have their own individual login.

Controlling CC vs ACH Acceptance

There are Settings to control the visibility of CC and ACH to be used for payments.

CC vs ACH Visibility

You can control the options that your customers see, CC vs ACH, when they open their invoice. This allows you to send an invoice to the contacts and limit which options they have to pay. (See video on left and images below.)

To begin, go to your Proposal Settings and visit the Payments tab. In there you will see the Payment Options for NEW proposals. These settings do not apply to existing proposals. See image below.

New and existing proposals will have similar setting options on the Proposal Overview tab. When a Contact opens their invoice, these are the settings referenced to determine what payment options are shown to the contact. Please remember the invoice is a dynamic page and will show the current settings at the time the page is opened.

See image below.

Regardless of the Customer’s options, as a ClientTether User you will be able to choose between all the payment options when taking a payment inside the Proposal system.

Notification Settings

December 2, 2021


The Notification Tab is in Settings.

You potentially have two internal tabs Control and Rollup. We will discuss each of those in depth later.

However, it is important to note the notification settings for this tab are saved per user and are not universal for the account.

Also please note that the Rollup tab will only appear if you turn on the Notification Roll-up Add-On.

Please note both of these settings are applied to the specific user not the account as a whole.



The control tab allows each User to decide exactly what type of Notifications they will receive.

In some cases you have three options for your notifications:

  • System
    • This controls whether the Notification is displayed in the right side panel of ClientTether. This is not specified by AU.
    • This option is available for every Notification type.
  • AU
    • System Notifications will only show to you for that notification if they are generated in relation to a contact where you are the Assigned User.
  • Text AU
    • If the user is the Assigned User for the contact then they receive a text Notification.
  • Email AU
    • If the user is the Assigned user for the contact then they receive an email otification.

Please also note that if the User is rolling up Notifications they will only see the roll up of the notification types they have selected in Control.

Also if you use the gold login button for an account or the green login as button for a user the notifications you see will be the same as the user you just ‘Logged in as’. Your credentialed settings do not go with you.

Control tab is always available in the Notification tab regardless of what Add-ons are turned on or off for the account.

QuickBooks Online Integration

September 21, 2021


There is an Add-On feature in ClientTether to integrate with QuickBooks Online. Once that Add-On is activated and the first Sync is complete, a regular synchronization is done every two hours at 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 Mountain Time.

  • The synchronization is initiated when a Contact, with an existing proposal, is marked as Closed or CMPL.
  • A new invoice will be created in your QuickBooks Online account, with the same name and number as the ClientTether proposal.
    • If the client already exists in QuickBooks, then the invoice will be tied to that client.
    • If the client does not exist, then a new client record will be created in QuickBooks with the information from ClientTether and the invoice will be tied to that client.
  • Any “Product” that exist in ClientTether that do not exist in QuickBooks will be created.
  • Any payments recorded in ClientTether will be added to that invoice.
  • As payments are added in ClientTether they will be added to the existing invoice.

    NOTE: Our CSMs are NOT QuickBooks user. How you use the data once transferred, is up to you.

How to Set up QuickBooks Online integration

This is done in a few quick steps

  1. Go to Add-Ons tab in setting and check the box for Quickbooks (this is a premium option.
  2. Go to the new Quickbooks tab and click on Provided links
  3. Sign into your Quickbooks account.
  4. Next, Choose how to match Proposal data to your QB Products.
  5. Lastly, there is an option to map three fields to your custom QB fields.

You can see this is set up once you have completed these steps by going back to the Quickbooks Tab. The email tied to your Quickbooks account will display as well as a notification that the integration is turned on.

QuickBooks Online integration is a premium add-on, and there is a cost associated with using this integration. Please contact your account manager to discuss any costs associated with activating this feature.

Google Sheets Integration

March 25, 2021


In Action Plans, you can now create an action plan step to instantly update a Google Sheet. This is an easy way to push updates to Google Analytics or other third party platforms that integrate with Google Sheets. To do this:

  1. Go to Action Plans
  2. Open the Action Plan you wish to add the step to
  3. Add a new action step
  4. In the Action Type drop down list select Google Sheet.
  5. Link the Google account that has editor rights to the Google Sheet you wish to update, by clicking on the drop menu for Authorized Google Accounts.
    • To add an authorized Google account just select “Add New”
    • Click the blue button that appears that says “Authorization with google”
    • Select which of your Google accounts you wish to authorize
    • Click Allow
    • Then go back to the drop-down list and select the newly authorized account.
  6. Next, paste in the Google Sheet ID
    • This is found opening the desired Google Sheet and copying the id number from the URL for the Google Sheet
  7. Select the Payload
    • If you opt to send full Contact Payload your sheet needs to be designed to have headers for every piece of the contact’s payload
    • If you want to only send specific information from the Contact, you need to map your Sheet’s Columns to the specific data being sent. Be sure to place the data you are sending in the same order of the Sheet’s Columns. For easy mapping, put the same name of the Sheet’s column header as the Key Name. Then select the corresponding Contact Token as the Value to be sent. Click Save after each Key Name-Value pair you create.
    • You can also set a fixed Value without a token, but that value will always be what is sent.
  8. Click “Save Action” once you are done with editing the step

Each time this action step runs, it will push the selected data from the client record into the specified Google Sheet.

Angi Leads (Home Advisor)

March 22, 2021


Our Angi Lead integration allows you to instantly get ALL information from new leads from Angi Leads, formerly Home Advisor, brought straight into ClientTether.

You can also easily monitor all incoming leads from Angi Leads via our API Monitor.

All information is stored and easily accessible within the Contact Profile for the lead.

Based on your settings you can arrange for an Action Plan to instantly fire off once the lead has come into the system.

There are two parts to getting this integration going and they must be done in the following order:

  1. Activating within ClientTether
  2. Activating with Angi Leads

Here is the link to the slide deck used in this presentation.


Activating Angi LeadsIntegration within ClientTether

We have made our side of this integration as simple as possible.

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Go to Add-Ons tab
  3. Check the box next to Activate Angi Leads
  4. Click on the tab that appears called “Angi Leads”
  5. Select your lead sources for “With an Appointment:” and “Without an Appointment”
    • Even if you don’t ever expect to get a lead with an appointment or without an appointment always set the lead source for both anyways.
  6. Click on the Unique Endpoint at the top of the page to copy it.

Here is the link to the slide deck used in this presentation.

Activating Angi Leads Integration with Angi Leads

To activate the Angi Leads API on the Angi Leads side you will need to send an email to: (This is still correct even they have changed name to Angi Leads).

This email needs to contain:

  1. A Subject with the number of Accounts you wish to add to the API
    • {{Your Company Name}} X Number of Accounts for API Set up
    • We strongly recommend not doing more than 10 at a time, and testing those 10 accounts, because Angi Leads manually enters the data on their end and have made errors on entries before.
  2. Create a table with the columns for the account owners first name, last name, Angi Leads’ Account ID, and the Unique Endpoint you copied from ClientTether.

  3. Make sure to specify for them to turn off any parser emails coming into ClientTether from Angi Leads
    • Otherwise you will have the same lead come in via the API integration and the parser, which will cause you to get a lot of duplicates.
  4. Send the email
    • Please be aware Angi Leads Standard Operating Procedure is to send you a test contact once the account is connected. This test contact will be a duplicate of an existing contact. If you wish for them not to do this please specify it in your email.
