While the basics of online lead sharing with Connectable are easy to master, there is so much more to Connectable. Engage your members with some of the lesser known tips tricks and ideas listed elow. Some groups have read one of these tips out every week at meetings, while others have shared the entire document.

See how many direct leads you’ve received by clicking on the DIRECT LEAD button on the dashboard and then on ‘RECEIVED’ tab.
If your attendance stats look wrong, click on your profile (on the web only) and then click on the tab marked ‘Attendance’. All recent meetings are shown and whether you attended them or not. If there is an error, let your administrator know so they can fix it and keep your stats accurate.

Put all your non-business information such as sales, open houses, and business events in the notice board.

There is a FAQ/Policy button in the top right corner where your administrator can upload by-laws and policies and other documents for your group.
Do you hate typing on your phone? Dictate your leads into your iPhone by putting your cursor into the box where you'd type the lead. Hit the microphone on the keyboard and speak the lead and then post.

When you 'VIEW ALL' general leads you can:
Comment on a lead
‘FAVOURITE’ a lead if you want to follow up with it later.
‘REPORT’ a lead if you think it should not be there. This will flag the administrator and they will decide if it should stay or not.
You can search for a classification (plumber, accountant etc) in the members search bar. This could be helpful for new members who don’t yet know everyone’s names.
From your profile, you can see all your testimonials given and received. Capture your testimonials and use them for your social media or marketing campaigns.
Use the noticeboard to post announcements about your business' open houses, sales, special events, or any other information that your fellow members may be interested in.
If your group is using lead categories (construction, human resources, legal, new businesses opening), you can search by categories for general leads that are relevant to you. For example, if you are in construction, you may want to filter the general leads to only show you ‘construction ‘ leads.
The announcement tile on the dashboard is a place where your administrator can post announcements for the members. Members cannot post information here but instead, are encouraged to use the ‘notice board’.
If you send someone a direct lead, only the recipient will see that lead. The information is confidential between you and the recipient.
To see what business you have given and received, check the ‘sent' and ‘received' tabs on the direct leads page.
If your group chooses to record how many dollars members are spending between each other, you can enter that value when you enter a ‘Did Business With’. The box to enter the $ of that sale will appear as soon as you select ‘did business with’ in the drop down menu on the Participation page.
