Patch 6.2.10

Scripts and Rebuttals

  • You can now toggle on Scripts and Rebuttals for Policies. They will show up under the Save Button in every policy.
  • You can find the setting in Options -> Dialer -> Script and Rebuttals on Policies
  • Scripts and Rebuttals on Policies will auto fill policy information as well as lead using the fields shown in Templates.

Templates

  • Updated to show all Lead and Policy fields.
    • *Fields match what is exported.

Primary Policies

  • In order to solve the issue of bundled and add on plans, we have now made it possible to set a Primary Policy on a Policy.
    • This will allow you to select the primary policy based on any other policy on the contact that does not itself have a primary policy.
    • Searches have been added to look for Primary Policies as well as Ancillary policies.
    • Searches have been added to find Policies with Ancillary policies attached.
    • This is not to be confused with Primary and Ancillary Plans. Plans are a product level categorization that can still be used to search.
    • More will be coming on the use of this new feature as we modify reports and other sections of the system to take it into account.
  • Search filters have been added to find Add on / Ancillary Policies
  • UI in Dialer has been updated to show if the product is Ancillary or Primary (x Ancillary) in the top right tab.
  • Info section in Dialer has been updated to show if it is a Primary or Ancillary and the related ID’s
  • Exports for Policies will show Ancillary count when searching for primaries or ancillaries.

Policies Filters

  • “Others” section
    • This section allows you to search by “Other” policies connected to the same contact.
      • This is useful for looking at policies sold alongside other policies. You can filter by plan, product status and more.

Callbacks

  • Callbacks can now be assigned.
    • You must be a manger or higher, or have the “Assign Callbacks” permission.

Admin Dashboard

  • Now shows States in policy lists.

 

 

Patch 6.2.9 – Relay Campaigns

Relay campaigns are now live! This opens up tons of possibilities for manipulating and moving data from the TLD System to dialers, SMS, brokers, buyers and more!

Relay Campaigns

  • Mailer Campaigns have been merged into “Campaigns” which now work for both mail and Relays based on the same set of parameters.
  • You can choose a Relay to send the data of the lead instead of an email template.
  • Relay Queues have been created for the system to pick up relay campaigns when they find qualifying leads for the search.
  • Relay Campaigns allow you to filter your leads by particular date criteria as well as other filters like state, vendor, status and more to create robust remarketing campaigns.
  • Example Uses of Relay Campaigns:
    • Send Data to a Lead Buyer if you haven’t converted or contacted leads.
    • Send Data to a SMS to Leads or Policies in certain statuses to remind them to renew their policies, contact the company, or send a happy birthday note.
    • Send Data back to your Dialer to call leads you haven’t contacted with a new priority.
    • Send Data back to your Dialer for renewals.
    • Send CSR’s to your Dialer for followup. *requires some more modifications per request
    • Send Callbacks to your Dialer for automated callback followup *requires some more modifications per request
    • Send Data back to your Dialer to call for surveys or check on them at certain intervals after the sale.
    • Send Data back to your Dialer to call for verification, post dates and more.
    • Send Data to a Data Warehouse for storage purposes or reporting.
    • And more! We are looking for feedback on new ideas on how you can use this new system to your benefit!

PHI and PCI Fields

  • We implemented a new method to deal with PCI and PHI Data.
  • Verifiers and Above have access to PCI and PHI Data on the Dialer Screen. as well as those with the “View PHI Data” and “View PCI Data” respectively.
  • Once a Sensitive field has been entered and saved, it will grey out and two icons will appear: edit and delete.
  • If a user doesn’t have permission to view this data, it will appear a starred, some fields have 3 or 4 of the last digits showing.
  • If a user edits a starred field, it will show a blank box in it’s place, expecting the user to type in a new value. If the user types nothing, it will not save or delete the data.
    • Those who have access will have the field auto filled in so they can just edit it.
  • If a user pressed the delete button it will set the greyed out field to blank and remove the data from the edit field.
  • Once the delete button has been pressed, you can undo this delete if you have NOT YET SAVED THE LEAD, by pressing the recycle icon. After pressing saved the data will be lost.
  • This fix solves the issue of Chrome and other browsers auto filling in passwords when we where hiding the data as a “password” field.

Policies

  • The following fields can now be searched as a range.
    • Premium
    • Enrollment Fee
    • Admin Fee
    • Deductible

Patch 6.2.8

#MOARFIELDS

New Dependent Fields

Dependents are getting some love! We added a ton of new fields for dependents in this patch that start making dependents feel a lot more like leads. Soon we will have an option to turn a dependent into a lead using the lead or dependents data that has been entered so you can save time creating policies for other peoples dependents should they need them. We will preserve a link to this lead on the dependent as well!

  • New Fields
    • Phone
    • Phone Type
    • Phone2
    • Phone2 Type

RSVP Events Updates

  • Events can now be searched by Zipcode. This disables the search by the leads address information and relies on an internal Zipcode Longitude / Latitude database to find nearby events. It still takes into consideration all other search filters including distance. This should make it easier to find events near a client that does not have or will not give a location.

Patch 6.2.7

More Events Changes

    • You will be given the option to choose a time begin and end for both of these events.

  • CSR and Note Search fields have been added to the filters.
  • *Upcoming: CSR sections will be updated to use lead data instead of policy data which will prevent duplicate CSR’s from showing, or just best guessing the policy in the table.

  • Fixed a meta issue for fields with ONLY custom Fields, and no default fields

Dialer Field and Section Hiding

You can now remove certain sections and fields from the dialer screen in the Options section. This will hide (but not remove) those fields so there is no loss of data if you import the data, but just don’t want agents to see it. More fields to disable will be added in the future.

New “My Business” Top Menu Dropdown!

The new My Business section holds a ton of new features for Agencies and Call Centers alike. You can now assign “My” abilities to agents to allow them to have access to admin-like sections of the CRM that are specifically pre filtered just for them. This is for companies that want to give their agents a little more control over their leads, policies and data, as it will allow them to list and search just like admins, albeit limited to only their pool of data. If you want them to have access to the full leads or policies section just give them the “View” abilities (View Leads, View Policies) or give them a higher role!
