About Follow-up Process

Follow-up Process options are set up in the Project Admin Center to allow sales reps to select from a list identifying where a registrant is at in the sales process. This is different from the Rating field which is generally used to describe the qualification of a registrant such as A,B, C, or Agent, Purchaser, etc.

Selecting an option in the Follow-up Process field can serve as a classification marker for the sales rep. If a Follow-up Process is associated with a Sales Process, it can trigger the automatic assignment of sales activities to be completed. The specific activities as defined when creating each Sales Process will appear in the Activities section of the sales rep’s Sales Center home page once the process is triggered.

Examples of how to use the Follow-up Process field:

  • To classify the registrant
    A client creates a dropdown of four options: 1) interested; 2) viewed property; 3) in contract negotiations; and 4) sale complete. When a sales rep is on a registrant profile, they can manually select the option that applies to any assigned registrant at any given time, to identify how far along the registrant is in the process.
  • To classify the registrant and trigger automated activities
    A client has three defined follow-up processes from which a sales rep can choose depending on the needs of the client. The processes begin at varying schedules after initial contact: 1) two weeks; 2) one month; and 3) three months. The three follow-up options are created as a dropdown in the Follow-up Process field. Three corresponding sales processes are linked to the follow-up options. The Sales Rep makes initial contact with the Registrant and determines that the follow-up process should begin in two weeks as this best suits the Registrant's needs. The Sales Rep selects Follow-up Process 1 in the Follow-up field in the Registrant Profile. This will trigger the sales activities that were created and associated with Follow-up Process 1, e.g. phone call two weeks after intial contact.
