Realvolve Update: Contact Filters - New Filters and Improved Process

Posted by Mark Stepp on Jul 7, 2017 10:54:06 AM

From the beginning, Realvolve has incorporated contact filters to retrieve groups of contacts from the database. As new fields were added, we expanded the number of available filters to meet the growing need of the users. With the addition of several new fields, It has become necessary to expand the list of filters once again but there was a challenge… Where to place the filters?

There was simply no room to put the additional filters in the current list view without cluttering up the screen, so we took a new approach!

Instead of listing the filters in one horizontal line, we decided to expand downward to allow for more growth. In order to make the new design work, we needed to hide the filters until they were needed. We also decided to give the users the ability to save custom filters and reuse them in at any time.

Realvolve Update: Enhanced Dashboard with New Team Reporting Widget

Posted by Mark Stepp on Jun 29, 2017 4:10:38 PM

The Realvolve engineers have been busy improving the speed and performance of the application inside and out. One area they focused on was the load time of the widgets on the dashboard.  The goal was to reduce the time it takes for each widget to display in order to speed up the overall performance.  While doing this, they decided to give the dashboard a facelift with a much cleaner look!  

We’ve added an arrow button to the upper/right corner of the dashboard to hide or show the widgets with one click.  This allows those users that don’t want to see the widgets to quickly eliminate them.  When returning to the dashboard, the system retains the previous setting.

"Round Robin" Lead Assignment

Posted by Mark Stepp on Oct 18, 2016 9:00:00 AM

Realvolve has a new tool to help solve the nagging problem of inbound lead assignments for rainmakers.  The zapier.com integration was designed to allow a specific user to be assigned as Record owner on inbound leads but lacked a way to spread those leads over multiple realvolve users.  The new "Record Owner Assignment" feature is instrumental in closing the gap in the original zap design and opens a variety of options for to lead assigment, including "Round Robin"!

Pause to catch your breath then keep moving forward!

Posted by Mark Stepp on Jul 1, 2016 8:38:29 AM

While on our family vacation to Breckenridge Colorado this year, I went for a morning run up the mountain just above our condo.  As I made my way up the zigging and zagging streets and the inclining rocky trails, I noticed the beauty of my surroundings. The sound of the brisk mountain water rushing down the creek was extremely soothing, but there was a challenge...

Operate Your Real Estate Team Like NASA: "It Won't Fail Because of Me!"

Posted by Mark Stepp on Jun 16, 2016 7:00:00 AM

I just finished listening to the audible book:  "A Man On The Moon, The voyages of the Apollo Astronauts" by Andrew Chaikin.   It has several great inspirations that I could share but one particular story hit home with me and I shared it with our Realvolve team.

Here is an exerpt:

A few weeks before his Apollo 16 launch, Ken Mattingly went to the launch pad and gazed up at the towering Saturn V rocket that would take him and two other astronauts to the moon.
