How do we create and assign Groups for Agents in CRM - Agents Beta?
I see the UI for Agent Groups (as shown in the screenshot). I also see agent groups UI in Smart Agent Lists and the Agent’s Preference page, but I cannot figure out how to group them after trying several different ways. Is it active yet?
Also, can we email that group of agents from the backend? (hoping it’s yes!)
We have a need to email just the agents in a branch office (i.e. Seattle Branch/Agent Group). We can email all 100 agents, but if we wanted to email just agents in a particular branch we have to select/deselect them manually from among our 100 agents. Thanks!
Thank you!! May I make a suggestion to make the UI a little more intuitive?
The my Set Up button in the lower left is making a mode change from CRM to Agent whenever you switch between the two. However it’s not clear that occurred. I didn’t think the mode changed for that button when I clicked over from CRM to Agent and so I skipped over that.
My suggestion is when in CRM mode, the button should say “My CRM Set Up” and when in Agent mode say “My Agents Set Up”.
Maybe even a color change? CRM mode could be orange, and Agents mode blue up in the top left. Then the set up buttons at the bottom color correspond too.
The difference between modes is pretty subtle and that’s where I tripped up.
Hey Phil, I think we missed clarifying the requirement properly for you - it was not to introduce new add functionality (a new pattern) in the fly-out bar. We can discuss that, but that’s not the ask or topic in this thread.
What was being pointed out is that when you’re in “agents” vs in “leads” there is no indicator of which one you’re in. Let’s discuss your mockup idea in a future separate R & D session (if we’re doing it, we should look at where else this might potentially work in the fly-out)
But what we need for this thread is an idea of how to label the setup of each section better now that there are two (and they are both called “my setup” which is clearly confusing)
Maybe this might help: I’m in agents, and it says “my setup”
This is great! I feel “Manage” Leads, “Manage” Agents is a bit more descriptive than “Set Up”. “Set Up” feels like a one time task you do at the start, but many of the tasks are more ongoing nature. It also works well with Manage Smart Lists naming already in place.
I really love how much you include our feedback and work in the open like this!!
Yep. I understand. The filter button does follows this pattern “Filter Leads” vs “Filter Agents”, so it makes sense that the my setup link should also follow that same convention, if it leads to a leads/agents specific “my setup”.
Thanks, I totally see the POV on this. It’s one thing I find interesting about UI. So many considerations to make something great for thousands of users who all have their own POV’s, skill levels, etc. Quite the balancing act!
