In a continuous effort to standardize and update the Connect interface, the Desking interface will be updated on Tuesday, Nov. 29. The Desking Navigation icons and Deal Scenario icons will be replaced with text descriptions , as well as updating the Desking page colors.
Although the icons will be replaced, the functionality will not change. The Push To option will contain a drop-drown menu, which will allow users to push a deal to the DMS, DealerTrack, or RouteOne.
Users can hover over any of the new text descriptions to get additional information.
Note: Over the next few weeks, the eAcademy Desking Courses will be updated to reflect the new Desking interface.
If a dealership has a DMS that is configured to send service appointment data to Connect, the data will be imported into the CRM Service Lead records and Service Appointment Reminders follow-up processes will be available to create reminders up until the scheduled appointment time. This will give dealerships better visibility to upcoming service appointments, as well as allow them the ability to set-up Service Appointment Reminders follow-up processes.
Note: A dealer will not be able to schedule or manage their service appointments in the CRM, but will have a central location for communications with customers who have upcoming service appointments.
When service appointment records are imported, they will either be matched to an existing customer and lead record or if no match is found, a new record will be created.
The following are explanations of the different import scenarios:
Note: When a new service lead is created, the lead will be assigned according to the service lead assignment rules for that dealership.
The Service Appointment Reminders can be found on the Sales and Service Processes page (Settings > ILM/CRM Settings > Sales and Service Process). Once a service lead record is matched or created, the Service Appointment Reminder processes will be enabled and reminders can be created.
