Repeat Orders Call List Tab

Call Lists are useful for telesales staff where customers purchase items on a regular basis, for example weekly or monthly. The call lists can be set up (see How To: Create a Call List) so the telesales staff know when to call customers, who to contact and can then create a sales order from the call (see How To: Create a Sales Order from a Call List).

The call list tab is typically used by selecting a day filter and ringing the customers in the list for that day, creating orders as required. When orders are created the system will add them to the delivery round that is most appropriate (customers can belong to multiple delivery rounds).

The [ Repeat Orders | Call List ] tab is read-only and entries are controlled via the [ Repeat Orders | Call List Setup ] tab.

The Call List tab consists of three areas:

Call List Filters

Several filters are displayed at the top of the call list:

  • User: user call list customer is assigned to.
  • Day of Week: used to filter by day of week " 1:Sunday, 2:Monday etc.
  • Day of Month: used to filter by day of month.
  • Specific Date: used to filter by specific date.
  • Index: used to filter by Index.
  • Purchase Calls: when ticked displays purchase call list entries.
  • Note: used to filter on a specific call list note.
  • Colour legend button button: details the meaning of the colours used in the grid.
