aNinja auto-saving mechanism for Emails and notes

aNinja auto-saving is a useful mechanism that saves your work automatically, every few seconds. So you don’t risk losing work if your laptop runs out of battery, you lose wifi signal, or the power flickers.

How does the auto-saving work

Auto-saving in aNinja is enabled by default for your Emails and notes.

When composing an Email or note in the lead view or in the template, it is auto-saved every few seconds to the auto-save directory on your computer.

So you can roll back to the changes only from the computer you were on. As it saves on the machine’s local storage.

Restore the auto-saved versions

  • Go to the Email or note, and click on the auto-save button on the left of the toolbar.

  • Choose what you want to restore.

  • It rolls back the version that was saved then.

Note! Attachments are not auto-saved. So if you attached a file and then deleted it, the auto-saving can not recover it for you.

Power Dialing leads

Power dialing leads is a very useful feature for salespersons. When they want to call all or a group of leads sequentially. The system automatically brings the phone number of the next lead in line.

Power Dialing

  • Whether you choose to call all the leads, or a group of leads that you pulled out using a Smartlist, on the top right of the leads view page, hit the Power Dial Button.

  • This option allows you to call all the leads on the page sequentially without having to enter into each lead’s profile to call him manually.
  • When the current call is ended, the system starts calling the lead next in line.
  • You also have the option to pause the call.

Note! You might need to check for duplicate leads in your calling list before you start the power dialing. Otherwise, you will be calling the same leads more than once. Which is not really pleasant for the leads. And, it adds additional charges to your phone bill.

History of Interactions and Activities of a lead

aNinja brings you the history of all interactions and activities made for a lead in the lead view.

What’s the history of interactions and activities

Since the creation of a lead in your aNinja account, the system saves all the interactions and activities that you have made to this lead, in the history section.

Moreover, they are listed in ascending order. So, the users and team members are kept in the loop of the actions performed on this lead.

In the history you can view:

  • Calls made and their durations.
  • Emails that are sent & received with this lead.
  • Notes that are left by any team member so any other user stays updated on any relevant info.
  • Texts that are sent to this lead.
  • Tasks that are assigned and their statuses.
  • Workflow steps changes.
  • Chatbot conversations that are initiated by this lead.
  • Triggers
