Enquiries part two – Assigning an enquiry
In this mini-series of posts we are walking you through some of the specific functionalities available within the system that comprises GoLive 2. In the last post we looked at receiving and responding to an enquiry in the Enquiry Centre. In this post we will be looking at assigning an enquiry to a member of staff outside of the Enquiry Centre. This happens when a member of the Enquiry Centre receives a question that requires detailed, perhaps course-specific, knowledge to answer, and so they’ll need to pass it on to someone with relevant expertise.
Step 1: Receiving the enquiry
Here you can see that we have a new lead, demonstrated by the ‘New’ status. The full enquiry can be viewed by clicking the ‘Notes’ tab.
Step 2: Viewing the enquiry
As you can see, this is a very specific question that requires input from the International Office. Therefore, this question will need to be assigned.
Step 3: Finding team members
The ‘Assign’ tab displays current team members. In the example below we can see team members in the Student Recruitment and Enquiry Centre (SREC).
Step 4: Selecting a team
The dropdown menu along with the ‘Add’ button can be used to select the relevant team. In this case the enquirer had a question regarding Polish qualifications, so the relevant sales team is ‘UK – Intl Office Europe’ (International Office – Europe Team).
Step 5: Selecting a team member
From here a member of the team can be designated to answer the query by ticking the appropriate tick box in the ‘Primary’ column. The lead should then be saved using the ‘Save’ button at the bottom of the screen.
Step 6: Checking the lead has been assigned
Once the enquiry has been saved we can return to the ‘Discover’ tab, where the enquiry should now be displaying as an ‘Open’ lead. The ‘Recruiter’ field should display the name of the team member that we assigned the lead to in the previous steps.
