System Rejections and what they mean.


What do I need to know about System Rejections?

This section is where all your leads fall when they have failed validation. By validation, this could mean incorrect format used, phone number not in the correct country, failed mobile validation, lead does not meet requirements to name a few.  

Below you will see a table with rejection codes and what each code means which will be linked to each lead that falls into system rejections:

Why do I need to check this?
