    AI prospecting (preview)

    AI prospecting is a new feature that uses artificial intelligence to help you find relevant leads that match your ICP. After you select an audience using traditional filters (e.g., Founders of Series A startups in the Marketing industry headquartered in San Francisco), you can ask custom questions like "Is this company remote work-friendly?" or "Is this company funded by Y Combinator?" and your prospects will be filtered to match your criteria.

    AI prospecting is currently in preview; if you'd like to try them out, go to Settings -> Feature preview and enable "AI prospecting". Then, you will see new AI prospecting features when you create or edit a campaign under "Audience".
