Organizing Tasks in Salesforce.com

Facebook LinkedIn Google+ Twitter


We use Salesforce.com (SFDC) religiously at M5 Networks.  In fact, we even created M5Connect which allows our phones to integrate with SFDC for click to dial, screen pops, etc.  I have created my own system - utilizing the wrap codes our connector creates and the tasks in SFDC so at a glance I can see what has happened with a particular lead.  I always put the state on the task if it is not in my time zone, and I use terms like "Call" if I have not left a message, "Call" if have not heard from the lead after I left a voicemail, and "Check back in" if we have spoken.  I came across this article (Organized Tasking for High Outblound Inside Sales Activity) from AG Salesworks on Twitter that provides some new ideas to organizing tasks in Salesforce.com.
