If you are new to Follow Up Boss, you are probably just learning about smart lists. Smart lists are key to unlocking the true power of Follow Up Boss. They will help you ensure no opportunities slip through the cracks. With smart lists, you'll finally have a workflow that keeps you on top of your most important leads.
Every new Follow Up Boss account has default lists included, taking the guesswork out of getting started. All you need to do is organize your leads by stage and these lists will start to work for you! Please note: if you customize your stages, you'll need to update these lists, otherwise we will be looking for a stage you are not using.
Stage vs. smart list
- Stage = main category of your lead like hot prospect or nurture.
- Smart lists = lists created by saving filtered criteria like stage. Not every smart list includes a stage filter. You can create smart lists based on tags, custom fields, and things like last call.
