3 Helpful Hints

Here are three things that you may not know that will make it easier to login, better looking and help people respond to you!  (And who wouldn’t want to be better looking and noticed more?!)

 

Easier to login

By now, everyone should know the easiest way to login to ReloSpec is to go to MyReloSpec.com.  But, did you know you can add your ID and Password to the link?  With 1-click you can open ReloSpec AND be logged in!  To create a shortcut on your PC’s desktop, login to ReloSpec then right-click and click on ‘Create Shortcut’.  You’ll be asked if you want to create the shortcut to the ReloSpec page.  Click YES and the shortcut will be created.

Right-click the shortcut and at the end of what’s in the URL add:

?userid=DEMO&password=DEMOPASSWORD then click OK.  The URL will now read: https://www.relospeccloud.com/RELOSPEC/SQL/MAINMENU.ASP?userid=DEMO&password=DEMOPASSWORD

NOTE:  Replace “DEMO” with your actual ID and replace “DEMOPASSWORD” with your actual Password.  Now when you click the shortcut it will open ReloSpec and log you in automatically.

If you’re manually entering the shortcut, here’s a shorter way to do it.  Save the URL as MyReloSpec.com?userid=DEMO&password=DEMOPASSWORD   That works too!

 

Change your THEME

Are you tired of looking at the same old background colors and icons?  Why not change things up?  Those items are known as the ‘Color Theme’ and may be changed at any time by you.  From the Main Menu page click SETTINGS, USERS, click the pencil for your name and from the Color Theme droplist select the theme you want to use.  To view samples of the themes click the ‘View Choices’ button below the label.  Hint: the standard Color Theme for ReloSpec is “Ultra”.

 

Change/Update your Email Signature

Many of the ReloSpec FORMS use what is known as the Email Signature at the bottom of the outgoing email.  If you don’t have your Email Signature created or if it hasn’t been updated lately, you should check on it.  From the Main Menu, click SETTINGS, USERS and look in the Email Signature field about halfway down the right column.  Make changes as needed, or if it is blank, use the ‘Auto-Create’ button to have ReloSpec create the Email Signature for you, then click UPDATE CURRENT RECORD.

New Report: Scorecard – Opportunities by Agent

We’re very excited about a new report that provides more information about your agent’s performance.  The Advanced report name is ‘Scorecard – Opportunities by Agent’ and is listed in your REPORTS page.

Why this new report?  You have always been able to generate a report based on referral records where the agent was assigned and stayed assigned.  But that is not always what happens.  If the Assigned Agent was changed to another agent you weren’t able to track what happened with the original agent.  Now you can, and it is all done for you automatically!

THIS IS A VERY BIG DEAL!  Each time you assign an agent, a new Note is added to the Agents Notes table (not the Referrals Notes table).  The [Disposition] is entered as “Assigned” and ReloSpec knows to which referral record.  Once the agent accepts the assignment using one of the ‘AutoAssign’ forms, in addition to everything else, ReloSpec adds an Agents Notes record noting that it was “Accepted”.  Or, if the agent rejects the assignment, we track that along with the reason given by the agent!

So, now when the agent asks you why you don’t assign anything to him/her, you can run this new report and have ALL the results at your fingertips!

Click here to view a sample of this new report.  Notice it displays all Agents Notes and the disposition for each.  They are grouped by Referral record number, Client Last Name and Transaction Address.  You may run the report for any date range.  (Year-to-date is the default)

NOTE: ReloSpec began creating the Agents Notes this morning, so it will take a few days or weeks to build up the data needed for your report.  But, it is all in progress now and you didn’t have to do a thing!

Report Update: Scorecard-Summary for Offices, Agents

Many of you reviewed the new Advanced ‘Scorecard – Summary’ report and let us know you appreciate the clean look and the ability to get results quickly.

However, a few of you have not been able to use the original report due to a large number of agents in your Agents table.  When selecting “All Agents” in the droplist there were too many for the report to process properly.

The original report is now two reports; the ‘Scorecard – Summary by Office’ and the ‘Scorecard – Summary by Agent’.  When you want to see results for one or more Offices choose the ‘…by Office’ version and when you want a report with one or more agents (not all agents) use the ‘…by Agent’ version.

Both reports group by Office(s), then Agents and will expand horizontally to display your unique Referral Status totals for each agent with one line per agent in a concise easy-to-read report.

Enjoy!

Getting the most from your ReloSpec: EXPRESS LINKS

We often hear ReloSpec users say, “I know it could do more for me, but I don’t have the time to learn how”.  Use the Express links on the Main Menu page and let ReloSpec do things automatically!

The greatest advantage to using the Express ‘Incoming’ or ‘Outgoing’ referral form is that you choose the Action Plan before clicking SUBMIT and ReloSpec does the rest!  It selects the Tasks to be done and if they’re due today it automatically sends the AutoPilots!  Just fill out the form, select the Action Plan and SUBMIT.  Easy and FAST!

Plus, the Express links include a list of AutoPilots due to go out, and a list of Responses coming in.  Want it more automatic?  Let a member of the ReloSpec Team know you want your AutoPilots sent for you.  We’ll add your name to the list of people whose AutoPilots get sent each morning.  You don’t even need to login!

And, for Responses, if you want, you can have all your responses go automatically to the Notes table.  Then, when you select a record in the Client List page you’ll see ALL notes and not have to also check to see if there is an update waiting in the Responses table.  You can turn this feature on or off in the Settings, Users page.

Get more done in less time with the Express links!

Follow-up with Agent until ‘Live’ contact is made

When you assign a new lead to an agent, do you want to send a request to the agent every day for, say, 6 days asking if ‘live’ contact has been made?  And, if live contact has been made, do you want ReloSpec to stop sending the ‘Follow-up’ requests?

Now you can!  In the past you could always send an AutoPilot to the agent, but once contact with the client had been made you needed to cancel the AutoPilots yourself.  With the new ‘Auto Follow Up’ form that is done for you automatically.

Create an Action Plan Item with the following settings:

  • Activity: AutoPilot
  • # of Days from today: 0
  • Repeat?: YES
  • Repeat in how many days?: 1  (sends the AutoPilot each day)
  • Expires in how many days?: 6 (or however many days you want)
  • Is a Response required?: YES
  • Send to whom?: Assigned Agent
  • Send which form?: Auto Follow Up

That’s it.  ReloSpec will send the ‘Auto Follow Up’ form to the agent each day.  The form asks if ‘live’ contact has been made.  When the agent clicks the link in the email and answers YES on the form, the response will be inserted into your Responses page.  When you ‘process’ the response ReloSpec will look to see if you have any other ‘Auto Follow Up’ forms scheduled for the agent.  If so, ReloSpec will automatically cancel the remaining AutoPilots containing the Auto Follow Up form.

This is a great way to help ensure the agent is making the effort to contact the client within those first critical days.
