You have spent many hours preparing your quote and sending it out to customers and then your met be loud, deafening silence. We dont like this as much as you. The customer response tracker is an easy way to track responsive customers.
You must have already seen the "Quote Read Receipt" feature, which alerts you that your quote has been read by a customer.
The Customer Response Tracker is a quicker and easier way to understand if a job poster is responsive or not. It has Three main levels of information
1) The color coding (Green, Yellow and Red) - indicates if a customer has not visited a posting for a long time. 0-2 weeks green, 2-4 weeks Yellow, > 4weeks - Red.
2) Time tracker - the lprevious visit a customer made to the posting and the last time a customer replied to a photographer. - Do note, many customers prefer speaking on the phone to typing out responses, as this closes out issues faster. More and more customers prefer using Flatpebble as its non intrusive and secure.
3) If a customer has viewed an email id or a Phone number and the number of times, he/she has done that is also tracked, allowing photographers to understand the preferred mode of communication.
