Automated Task Suggestion

The Automated Task Suggestion function in the Automation package, allows you to set any sequence of tasks in the order of your choosing. With this function, Livespace will automatically propose adding another task, in accordance with the conditions you have set before, helping you speed up your teams work.

Activating the Automated Task Suggestion

To activate the Automated Task Suggestion, go to Account settings > Calendar and tasks and then press the edit icon in the Actions column with the task type selected.

 

Turn on the option for After completing automatically suggest to add a new task, which allows you to set up a sequence of tasks automatically.

 

With the option available, you can now define:

1. The type of a new task, that will be proposed to be added

 

2.   The person responsible for the next task

 

3.  A due date for the new task

 

Once everything is ready, press the Save button.

 

 

The proposed task is now visible in task settings.

 

You can activate the Automated Task Suggestion for as many number of task types you wish, according to your needs.

Good to know

The Meeting task type cannot be edited due to its association with goal counting in the Targets and Results tab.

How does the Automated Task Suggestion work in practice?

The example below shows that, when the E-mail task is marked as done, a screen with a suggestion for the next task is added to the calendar. In this case, it is a ‘Phone Call’.

 

You can immediately press Add or you can modify the criteria, for example, when you receive a message that the person responsible for the task, has scheduled another activity within the proposed time.

If you want to start the Automated Task Suggestion while adding a new task type, press the ‘Add type’ button and follow the steps described above.

Email automation in Livespace CRM

Marketing research shows that 80% of probable deals require contacting a potential customer at least 5 times in order to turn the lead into a profitable client. At the same time, 70% of dealers quit on the deal, because they do not receive an answer. That is usually due to lack of time, lack of consequence of marketing actions or thinking that not getting an answer means the potential client is not interested, therefore the deal is closed. However, until we get a specific answer we should stay in the game.

In such case, email automation is what comes in handy. If you decide to set up an email marketing campaign, Livespace will contact your client until their reply (whether the answer will be positive or negative). Additionally, after a few unanswered emails, Livespace will automatically remind you about for example calling your client.
