In August we had our annual team meetup and brought our growing team (now 23 people!) to Nashville for fun, food, and planning to help everyone on the team serve you better.
We also try to meetup with local customers at these meetups to provide additional training and get their direct feedback on how we can continue improving our product. This year we hosted several customers at our venue, but also went to hang out with almost 40 agents who all work with the Ashton Real Estate Group, who are currently ranked as the #1 Remax team in the world.
Danielle, Jennifer and Erik ran a training with their sales director Scott filled with breakthroughs for those in attendance and lots of great feedback on how we can do even better!
It was a great experience to share the room with such an engaged group of professionals and were honored to have everyone spend their Friday morning with us.
Our engineering team has also been hard at work all month, and here’s everything they’ve shipped in August:
It’s never fun to call a lead or client, only to find they can’t hear you because there’s some issue with your equipment setup.
Now under “My Settings“, you have the ability to “Make a test call” for testing your microphone setup when using the Follow Up Boss dialer. See our help document for additional details.
We are continuing to clean up and help reduce clutter on the person screen. You can now reorder and collapse various sections on the left side!
Smart List counts are an easy way to see how many people match the conditions for a given smart list.
These counts can be useful when working lists that will filter out leads once they are actioned.
This will allow you to see, at a glance, if there are leads to work in your various lists.
Check out https://help.followupboss.com/article/462-smart-list-counts for more details.
You can now download call recordings to help with coaching your agents and reviewing calls.
By default Follow Up Boss would either deduplicate leads by email or the combination of phone number AND name. Now in addition to these checks, if no matches are found, we will also search for existing leads by phone number only. In all deduplication checks, if there are multiple matches, we will select the most recently created lead.
As always, keep the feedback coming in, we will keep improving and making things look better!
A fix has been released to address a case where the round-robin tracker for a group could be advanced without a new lead being created if the lead’s email address was not in a valid format.
Accounts who have the BombBomb integration enabled were experiencing some issues with fetching data from the sidebar. We managed to find the issue and get it fixed so if you’re using that integration it should work much better now.
