Client Manager : View Clients

What is it?




Client Manager is a quick and efficient customer management tool that provides the ability to track your Clients' activity within Listingbook. The Client Manager Grid View is separated into two sections. The top portion is for Clients that are actively engaged in the buying or selling process. The bottom portion is for all other Clients that are not quite ready to buy or sell and that are casually searching or staying up-to-date with current market conditions.

Client Manager overview

How do I use it?




For Clients that are actively searching for a home or have their property listed, Listingbook allows you to pin that client to the top of the grid.  Pinning can be achieved by selecting the checkbox beside the Client folder name.  Once the box is checked, the client folder will move from the bottom section to the top section.  If a client is no longer actively involved in the buying or selling process, you can uncheck the pin box next to their name and they will be placed back into the bottom grid.

Additionally, the Client Manager Grid View is your gateway into the Client Dashboard, the central repository for all activity within a Client Folder. To access a Client Dashboard, click on any name in the Client Folder column. You can also access any Client Dashboard by clicking on the activity results in the following columns: Search Results, Views, Favorites, Rejects, Notes, Address and Competition.
