New Lead Alerts- Assigned Agent: If your phone number is in your settings, you will receive a text notification for all new leads in addition to an email notification and a desktop notification (if enabled). These alerts come 24/7. For more on this, check out New Lead Alerts.
New Lead Alerts - Admin User: If you are an Admin user, you can enable your account to receive notifications for new leads for all agents. These will come as both email alerts and text alerts.
Reassigned Leads: If a lead is reassigned to you, you will receive a text notification and/or an email notification depending on whether one or multiple leads were reassigned to you. NOTE: When multiple leads are reassigned at the same time, the agent will only receive one email notification. Ex: one email with the subject "8 Leads Assigned"
You are added as a Collaborator: If you are added as a collaborator on a lead, you will receive an email notification.
Ongoing Lead Activity: If you receive a new property inquiry from an existing lead, you will receive an email notification and a text message. NOTE: You will only receive notifications for a lead's first website registration. Subsequent registrations will not trigger notifications.
Task Notifications: If someone assigns you a task, you will get notified of the new task via email. However, you will not receive a notification at the time of day the task is due. The FUB Calendar and Task feature is a great way to view all of your tasks for today, in the future, and even those that are overdue. If you utilize the Google Calendar sync, you can set your Google Calendar to alert you.
Notes: If someone is mentioned in a note, we will alert them via email, push notification, browser notification and/or bell notification. The assigned agent is not notified of every note created for a lead.
Action Plan Notes: If you are selected to be notified about a note created by an action plan, you will receive an email notification and bell notification.
Missed Calls: If you have the Calling feature enabled, and you have a missed call, it will show up in the contact’s timeline, and also right inside your Inbox.
Notifications are available for desktop and the iPhone app, but Android app users won't receive notifications at this time.
- When an unknown contact reaches out to the team inbox and the conversation is assigned to the team inbox, a notification will be sent to any user who has access to the team inbox.
- When a known contact reaches out to the team inbox and the conversation is assigned to a team inbox, a notification will be sent to any user who has access to the team inbox and the known contact.
- When a known or unknown contact reaches out to the team inbox and the conversation or lead is assigned to an agent, a notification will be sent to the assigned agent regardless of access to the team inbox or lead profile.
Texting Through Follow Up Boss: When using the texting feature, if the lead sends you a text message, you will receive:
- Desktop notifications (if enabled)
- NOTE: We will only send desktop notifications for activity that is 5 or more seconds apart. For example, if a contact texts you and then sends you another text 7 seconds later, we will send a desktop notification for that second text. However, if a contact texts you and then sends you another text 3 seconds later (under the 5-second threshold), we will NOT send a desktop notification for that second text.
- iPhone push notifications (the alert view is best)
- Android push notifications (with the new Android app)
- You will NOT receive text or email notifications for texts in Follow Up Boss
- Push notifications will only go to the agent assigned to the lead.
- When a lead calls your FUB company number, the call will route to the assigned agent's cell phone or the number saved on the settings page.
- If two text notifications occur within 10 seconds, the 2nd will be dropped. We limit text notifications to 6 notifications per minute at most, and smooth everything out to avoid spikes.
This is how you enable notifications:
I’m not getting new lead alerts - what should I do?
- Make sure the lead is actually a new lead. We won’t send a text if the lead already exists in FUB.
- Make sure the lead came into Follow Up Boss with an email or phone number. New leads without contact information will not trigger new lead notifications.
- Check your settings - make sure your phone number is in FUB and that you have text alerts checked off so we can send you text alerts.
- Make sure you are checking the right email inbox - email notifications will be sent to the email address you use to log into FUB.
- Check your email/text messages - these can get lost in the clutter! search email@example.com in your email.
- Still having trouble? Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know the name of a lead you didn’t get notified about!
