Patch 6.9.8 – Post Haste!

We are hitting the new year running! I haven’t slept since New Years Day! Hour 60 here I come! Lots coming soon in the following months!

Thank you for your patience with the new Policy Status buttons method, we promise you will love it in the end. We made some quick patches the past couple days to correct some minor issues with some of the buttons not showing during the right Policy Stages. It’s actually working much better than it used to now!

We added a few more filter features for Policy Statuses and have one more change coming to allow you to reorganize your Buttons!

Policy Workflow Fixes

  • Interrupting a a Sale will now properly Remove the Date Reactivated and Reactivator.
  • In a sleep deprived stupid, I decided to change some of the button names, but they were not easily recognized, so I changed them back.
  • Re-added a block of missing buttons to Sale Stage.
  • Post Dates now always show Red when in the Future, regardless of Status or Stage.

Custom Lead Statuses

This section got a Heavy Rework and prep for an upcoming change that will allow you to organize the Button layouts yourself!

  • New Filters for when the Button Shows Up
    • Vendor Filter Updates
    • Vendor Group
    • Lead Tag
    • Roles
    • Abilities
    • Level
    • User Group
  • You can now set Button Icons! Default is none.
  • You can now set Button Colors! Default is White
  • As you type or change the Description, the previous icon on the top right should automatically update. This also works when selecting an icon and selecting a color.

Custom Policy Statuses

  • New Filters for when the Button Shows Up.
    • Vendor Group
    • Lead Tag
    • Policy Tag (Not even launched yet!)
    • User Group
    • Level, Role and Ability
    • Carrier, Plan, Policy

Custom Fields

  • Fixed calculation of the next available ID, after breaking it…myself…
  • Date Interrupted is now Default for Uncustomized or Custom Policy Statuses
  • Fields Edit are now Full Size Modals

Other Changes and Fixes

( For the tech nerds… )

  • We now have a script that we can run (Internally at Esotech), to sync your Dialer Lead Statuses with TLD’s statuses, translated into Vicidial Statuses. It even logs the results in case we need to undo creatively (Undo not yet written). We have fine Grain control over this module.
  • Lead Validation should no longer Trigger on “Resets” or “Unconvert”
  • Removed setting headers when not echoing HTML.
  • Disable gzip when not echoing HTML.
  • HTTP Response code now setable from Controllers, not just API. Boy, that was a long time coming.
  • New Save and Refresh JS Method to allow editing and adding things to a modal without having to close and reopen it.
  • Fixed a bug with Unclicking Radio Menus that were clicked on page load. What a pain that was…
  • New User Roles, Meta and Groups storage. Getting ready for some multi-account madness!
  • Skills is now a thing, but not used for much. Highest skill from your user groups gets set.
  • We can not more easily check if you are a member of a user Group
  • Fixed a bug in Renewals…actually Policies. The name for Has Renewal Refused was not correct. Those Pesky refusals should find their way out of your Queue…

Patch 6.9.7 – Happy New Year!

New Policy Theory & Custom Policy Statuses

PLEASE READ THIS!!!

Policy Stages, Substages and Custom Policy Statuses

Ideally, this update should not change your workflow or change much except the location of some buttons. For Full Details on Policy Workflow please see this Google Document.

All True Final Negative Status buttons are now Red. All Interrupted / Pending buttons are now Yellow, as it is implied that some action should be taken ( Verifying, Kicking, Submitting, etc.)

All True Final Negative Status Buttons have been given their own Row.

The Stage of the Policy will be displayed before the current Status. Example: Sale: Active, Pending Verification: Payment Issue.

This is a new theory and rework of the Policy Buttons on Policies in the Contract Page. Buttons are now visible based on their stage and substage. Because of this it is now possible to add your own Custom Policy Statuses similar to Custom Lead Statuses. These Custom Policy Statuses can be configured in all sorts of ways and even filtered based on Product, Role, Carrier, Plan and More. In an upcoming Patch you will also be able to filter the current statuses by customizing them.

Custom Statuses can be added under Settings -> Fields. Click “Add Custom Field” and choose “Custom Policy Status“. Make sure to configure the “Status” Tab as there are many options including which date stamp is used for the Status and what stages and substages the Status will show up on. Note that Statuses will not show on stages that do not support the Date type selected. ( Date Cancelled won’t show on Non-sale stage policies ).

A new button called “Resolve” has now been added along side “Unkick” to clarify the action you are taking and reset Policies back to their “base” status (Verified, Application).

  • There are now 4 Policy Stages
    • Conversion
    • Verification
    • Submission
    • Sale
    • Redacted (Trashed, not really a stage)
  • There are Policy Substages
    • Pending Submission (Interrupted Submission)
    • Failed Submission (Kicked Submission)
    • Pending Verification (Interrupted Verification)
    • Failed Verification (Kicked Verification)
    • Inactive Sale (Interrupted Sale)
    • Cancelled Sale (Cancelled Sale)
  • New Permissions
    • Resolve Policies
    • Resolve Applications
    • Resolve Verifications
    • Unkick Applications
    • Unkick Verifications
    • Reset Interruptions

CSR Reasons & Results

The CSR Section has been modified and some elements moved around. Generally speaking, the workflow is the same, but now you have the option of setting a CSR Reason (Defaults to General) which can be later filtered and exported where necessary or used as an indicator as to what the CSR Request is for.

You can also add Custom CSR Reasons under Settings -> Fields and pressing the Add Custom Field -> Add Custom CSR Reason. We have provided 5 default reasons we feel most people would need in the insurance industry.

After completing a CSR Request you have an option of setting a CSR Result, which can also later be filtered and exported. By default we have provided 2, Completed and Rescheduled. You can also add Custom CSR Results under Settings -> Fields and pressing the Add Custom Field -> Add Custom CSR Result.

General

  • If you accidentally type www.domain.tldcrm.com you will now automatically be redirected to the proper subdomain. ( Yay! )
  • If you login at login.tldcrm.com the system will redirect you to your proper primary account.

TLDialer

  • You can now Copy Ingroups from other Users in Mass Edit.
  • Exports fixed for Calls section when choosing Mixed, Inbound or Outbound. Should total correctly and give you only what you ask for.

  • New Fields for Contacts and Dependents.
    • Medicare Username.
    • Medicare Password.
  • Reset to Verified button added for Interrupted but Verified Policies.

Patch 6.9.6

Load Delay Changes ( Live Transfers with Data)

  • It is now possible to remove your Load Delay settings, and choose “Dupe Update” instead with your Reject in Vendor settings.
    • What will happen now is this:
      • 1. New Calls comes in, Lead Created and Agent can start working.
      • 2. Lead Gets Sent from Lead Provider
      • 3. Instead of Rejecting, Post system will UPDATE lead, and send notification to our Multi-user editing service as “System Process”
      • 4. Agent will have their Lead Data updated in real time when the update hits. Just like with Mutli-user editing, they will have the options to unset the data changes by clicking the button next to fields that have been changed.

Merge Tool is now Live. BE CAREFUL! No Undo!

Merging leads will take all the data from the listed leads and merge them into the selected “Merge Into Lead“.

The Merged Into Lead will have it’s lead data updated with information from the other leads. The Merged Leads will have their status set to Merged ( -1 ). A log of the Merge will be placed in the action log for all leads involved. Merging WILL effect reports regarding counts & costs, merged leads will no longer be part of reports, although still visible in your lead list.

On the lead you are Merging INTO ,you should select the “Protected Fields” you want to preserve from getting overwritten.

On leads you are Merging FROM, you should select the “Merge Fields” you want to allow an attempt to overwrite.

The “Merge Order” determines the order leads get merged from top to bottom, merging 1, then 2, and so on. You want the most Authoritative Leads inserted last. Drag and Drop the Boxes to Reorganize.

Regardless of Protected or Merge Fields selected, All Policies, Notes, Dependents, Touchpoints, Meta, Relational, Custom Fields, Dialer ID’s, Callbacks, Appointments, Favorites, Documents, Action Logs, Relay Logs, Relay Queues, Mailer Logs, View Logs, API Logs and Surveys will be merged by changing the Lead ID with the Merged Into’s Lead ID.

Merge and Protected Fields only include Uncommon Values among all Leads involved.  Unique Values will be merged in if they exist. Blank, or Unset values are filtered out.

THERE IS NO UNDO!!! If you forget “Merge Fields”, you can however, simply rerun the merge and choose the fields to merge again.

Surveys

  • Surveys can now be run more than once on the same lead.
  • Surveys each have a UniqueID created when running, so you can follow the path per survey on a lead.

Admin Dashboard

  • Now when selecting Include Post Dates, will include Post Dates Total at bottom and table of Post Date Conversions created in the time span. (Not Post Dates Submitted)

  • Fixed an issue with Aggregation still pulling in group_by defaults when no longer needed.

Fields & Products

    • Copies Dependent information to new contact. Once created, shows button that says Open Linked Contact.

      • Originally we could only do State by CallerID.
      • State by Postal was a Standard Feature of Vici, but it required user manual entry. We created our own that serves both purposes.

Users

Lead Posts

Fixed a terrible, unreported and  unnoticed bug with Dupe checking. Now let us never speak of this again…

  • Added “Price” as a postable Field. This should help with Vendors that are capable of passing the Bid Price along with the lead, which allows you to overcome the Fixed cost issue when setting on the Vendor. The QT Time feature will still work with TLDialer and remove the cost if the QT Time expires. But the original cost will be logged.
  • Added “Debug” to Vendors, which will show you performance on result of a lead post. This will format itself based on the Response Type set.
    • Example: 1 Success: Success|time: 0.1198s|memory: 7.24 MB|peak: 7.53 MB|method: POST|code: 200
  • Added a | to the front of successful TEXT based responses. This will allow you to parse it better. Debug information will also be separated by | key values will be separated by :
  • Vendor Passthrough
    • Vendor Passthrough is when you use one Vendors Post ID and POST key, but pass in a different Vendor ID in the data parameters. Normally this only works via Uploads and FTP Sync. Now it can work via Posting data as well if enabled.
      • The Passthrough Filters will work with FTP and Uploads if set, but enabling it is not required for these Vendors.
    • You can now set the ability for Vendor Passthrough via POST.
      • The feature can be found in Vendors under Data
    • You can assign a Vendor group of Passthrough to be allowed.
    • You can assign specific Vendors to be allowed

  • Fixed a Bug with Agent Emergency Logout.
  • Live Agent Report Modifications

      • Queue Campaign

        • Status is Not Completed
        • Not Current Dialer ID
        • Same Vendor Lead Code as Current Dialer ID

      • Pressing No will let you go about your business and continue editing as if it wasn’t that lead. This includes Dispositioning the lead. This will NOT disposition your call.
      • Pressing Yes will change the Dialer ID on the new Lead to the Call’s Dialer ID, and add the Dialer ID to the set of connected Dialer ID’s. It changes the merged leads vendor_lead_code to match the corrected TLD Lead ID. It also removes the Dialer ID From the Previous lead including the relational Dialer ID’s for that lead.
  • Added TLDialer Agent Logs to TLDialer Section so you can sort and export data.
  • You can now Hide the Ingroups dropdown  that shows up after logging in so your Agents don’t get upset when they notice the person sitting next to them has different ingroups.
  • Fixed an issue with Mass Update TLDialer User, where it would remove their Ingroups from the Live Agents Table if you didn’t select any ingroups.
  • Fixed an Issue with Hide Call Label Type where it was always and only showing the Outbound Call Label, but never the Inbound Call Label.

        • If the lead has Address info (as it may be different), we auto uncheck “Lead Address” for you to prevent any data loss on the addresses.

    • The setting is in Settings -> Options -> Data -> Show Public Vendors in “My Business” sections.

Lead Scorecard Report

  • TLDialer Mods

    • The Lead Scorecard will now give you the option to see “Duplicate Calls” and “Dropped Calls”. If you don’t see these fields please press “Reset Labels in the Labels Tab.

Feature: Print

  • This feature will be improved on at a later date.
  • If enabled, under Leads and My Leads, users can select multiple leads, and it will create a print friendly version with a print button of all those leads with basic information, any content within the “Image” field, and a worksheet of questions. Future renditions will allow for different Print layouts, and different print layouts per vendor. The goal is to have the print layouts merge with the Template system in the future.

Bugfixes

  • User Section can now be sorted again. Huzzah!

    • “The Event” did not effect production in any major way, but did cause some minor issues that got hotfixed in the beginning of the week until we realized we needed a core rewrite to continue adding new features.
    • The rewrite will also let us Develop in a standard way.
    • The System should be much faster, less possibility of Memory leaks and more secure overall.

Patch 6.8.3

TLDialer – Significant Change!

  • New Table: lead_dialer_leads
    • This table stores all the dialer leads associated with a lead when a duplicate if found and loaded instead of created newly.
    • How It Works
      • Every Dialer ID associated with a lead, including the current one, is stored in the lead_dialer_leads table
      • The lead_dialer_leads table is an association between lead_id and dialer_id
      • lead_id and dialer_id combos are unique.
      • When a lead is loaded via Manual Outbound, or Inbound, or any other method, when the lookup function of TLDCRM loads, it will check for both a Dialer ID (TLDialer Lead ID) and a Lead ID (TLDialer Vendor Lead Code).
        • Id a Lead ID Exists, it will load that lead precisely.
        • If a Dialer ID is passed along with the Lead ID, it will add the Dialer ID to the new table along with the Lead ID.
        • If a new lead is created with a Dialer ID, it will add that to the table as well.
        • Upon loading a lead that already existed, with a new Dialer ID, the system will set the CURRENT Dialer ID on the TLD Lead, to that Dialer ID, so that TLDialer and TLDCRM are working on the same lead. Updated will be passed to the TLDialer Lead, this includes if information already existed on the TLDCRM Lead.
          • An Action log will be added with the user loading the lead and the updated data.
      • Recordings will be lookup up via the Primary Dialer ID on the Lead, the leads in the lead_dialer_leads table, as well as any dialer_id’s in touchpoints.
    • A Link Icon will show next to the Lead ID, if there are entries in the lead_dialer_leads table. Click it to see the ID’s. We will allow for manual entry of Dialer ID’s onto a lead later to fix some merging issues.
    • A Broken Link will show next to a Lead ID where there are no entreis in the lead_dialer_leads table.
  • What does this mean?
    • This may fix some issues where people get “stuck” unable to leave a lead, as well as making sure the right lead loads when you do a manual dial and click the dial icon. The problem we are possibly seeing is that when manual dialing, a  lead with similar properties loads, but is the wrong lead_id / Vendor lead code that what is actually loaded in Vici.
    • This also means you can prevent dupes by searching for and tagging leads with Dialer ID’s in Customer Service Queues, making sure you load the right lead without creating dupes.
    • It also means that recordings for the same lead on different phone numbers can show up in the recordings tab.
  • Address3 / Phone 3
    • Address3 now works as a Phone Field (as per Vici Spec) and can be dialed as ADDR3. This field now syncs to Vici Database as well.

Report Update – Lead Scorecard.

  • Please see the Reports -> Lead Scorecard Report for more information!
    • You can now see call data along with new leads created, spend, qualified costs (based on qualified time) and CPA as well as conversion %.
    • Click the labels tab and drag and drop labels to reorder the report. You can also hide fields and change the names of fields.

Bugfix

  • Fixed an issue with aggregate queries not showing properly.

Patch 6.7.10

Reports

  • Modified the Lead Vendor ScoreCard
    • Should show more accurate and Reliable results, even when no sales are made!
    • When TLDialer is enabled for you account, you can now see Total Inbound Calls, and Total Qualified Calls (Based on Vendor Qualification Time [QT Time]).
    • We will be expanding some more features and options into this Report soon.

Recordings

  • The Contact Page will now search for Recordings in TLDialer by 3 criteria
    • 1st: Dialer ID, and TouchPoint Dialer ID’s
    • 2nd: Lead ID (Vendor Lead Code)
    • 3rd: Phone Numbers (Phone 1 2 and 3)

This should make finding recordings a bit easier.

TQL / TLDialer

  • Filters Selected
    • All TLDialer Sections now have a “Filters Selected” feature at the bottom of the Open Filters Screen,
    • As you run your filters, it will update automatically.
    • You can click on the “X” next to a selected filter to remove it.
    • This should be a nice handy quick way to see what you have selected.
    • We will be adding this to other sections as we migrate them to TQL over time.
  • String Filter Mods
    • We have added the following String / Text Filter Mods to the system.
      • Like
      • Not Like
      • Like Left
      • Not Like Left
      • Like Right
      • Not Like Right
      • In
      • Not In
    • You can search for comma, space, semicolon or pipe separated data in a text field by selecting IN or Not IN Mods after typing in your query.
  • Number Filter Mods
    • Numbers now have the same Filter Mods as Datetimes.
    • You can search for comma, space, semicolon or pipe separated data in a text field by simply typing in the data without a Filter Mod.
      • Since it is a number field, any text characters will convert the field to an IN field. You can do some advanced things like setting an IN query to both the start and end of a number field, but it will only show you the data where it is common (Intersection)
  • Query Builder Rewritten
    • Query builder now has a more efficient, and collision-prevention format.
      • This was actually a ton of work…but it should pay off in the future shortly.
    • All field mods now use field_tql=mod

Changes

  • Cleaned up some Mobile View for Filters.
  • Added “Code” Multi-checkbox to Vendor Logs.

Fixes

  • Fixed issue with Uploader not showing the Process button when all was well.
  • FIx to Issue where View Recordings wasn’t being respected in the Dialer Contact.
