Hi everyone here’s a scenario i think will really help you with your account management and generally looking after your clients.

Out of these hundreds of people stored in your list of contacts you want the system to help you decide who needs a call.

You can choose the salesperson you want to pick up the phone and give them a call.

Here I have a custom view showing me all my client contacts who we haven’t spoken to in the last 90 days.

Now i know that my regional salesman Frank is great at those keeping touch calls so i’m going to schedule a bunch of calls for him to make.

If we flip to frank’s to-do list you can see that list of people that he needs to call.

Obviously he is not going to make all the calls at exactly the same time but he has a really easy way of working his way through the list.

Start from the top and just click the complete link when making the call.

Frank can add his notes or create a follow-up and when he saves that activity it flips back to the to-do list with one less entry.

When you use the complete function it updates the start date and time to the current time and flips the status to done.

From a managerial perspective I can see that each time a call is made a name drops off my keeping touch list so if i now refresh this screen, my list has been updated with one less name included.

You have an easy way of lining up those calls and making a simple list for your salesperson to work through.
