Magic Columns are fields with data that Streak automatically records for you. When you add a Magic Column, every Box in that Pipeline will inherit that field. These fields will also then show up in your sidebar when viewing emails that have been added to the Pipeline. Magic Column data is system data that cannot be edited. If you remove a Magic Column you will not lose the data stored in it.
With Magic Columns, your Pipeline can be super organized. Filter, sort and group by the fields you have created. For example, you can filter, sort or group your pipeline by Assigned To, Date of Last Email, Days in Stage or even Number of Tasks Due (e.g. show only deals that haven't been responded to in the last week, that are assigned to John and myself).
(for data that you record yourself, like Deal Size, Location, Industry or any thing else you want to track, check out Custom Columns)
Adding Magic Columns
Create a new Column through the + button at the top right of the Pipeline, or right-clicking on any existing Column header and selecting Insert Column from the menu.
