Distribution is performed according to rule sets. Rule sets contain the personal and business requirements a lead must meet to be assigned to an advisor. When the Distribution tool is used, available leads in your system are assessed and assigned to an owner.
For example, you could configure a rule that assigns all leads who are interested in retirement information to an advisor who specializes in retirement income products and services.
Distribution is controlled by:
Rule sets contain a collection of rules. They assign available leads to advisors. Rule sets control the visibility of leads using user groups. If a rule set is associated with a specific group, only financial advisors belonging to that group are able to see leads that are distributed using it. Rule sets have a top-down priority wherein the top rule has the highest importance. You select a rule set when you distribute leads.
Rules contain conditions. Each rule will distribute leads to a single advisor. Multiple rules can be added to a rule set to distribute leads to more than one advisor.
Conditions define the criteria of a rule. Conditions specify the properties a lead must have in order to be assigned to an advisor. Multiple conditions can be added to a rule to create more complex requirements for lead assignment.
Create new lead distribution rules to automatically assign leads to advisors based on their personal and business details.
