The Flobot dashboard

Take a few moments to look over this screen. It is useful for getting a snap shot of your business on a daily or monthly basis. But don't worry about it too much yet, let's start with the basics.

Flobot enquiries screen
Adding a new customer to Flobot

To take a new customer into the system go to the top of the screen navigation and click 'New Customers'. This screen shows what we call the 'to-do' list of new customers. A list of potential customers we haven't got around to dealing with yet - but we don't want to lose them so we have saved them here.

Now go to the right hand side of the screen with the 3 little bars. We call this 'The Cabinet'. You will see them all over Flobot. When you do it means there is a drop down menu. Click it and select 'Add a new customer or enquiry'.

Note the video symbol. You will find this symbol throughout Flobot. If you get stuck click it and watch the video. It will show you how to do things.

Fill out the form

Now fill in the customers details. If you are in a hurry because the client is on the phone then you can just get their name and telephone number. Press the 'Save' button and you can come back and fill the rest of the information at a later date.

As you can see you can add lots of information in the details box, pictures, files and even video. Once you have the information you need then click 'Convert to order'.

End of todays lesson

Play around with saving the enquiry and then going back to complete it. Notice that you can also import all your customers via csv file so this is foradding a single new customer.

If you get stuck click the video symbol in the top left and you can see a demonstration of how it works. Now stop - first day of school everyone gets to go home early!
