3.Seamless Data Flow in State Update Forms

An update in Vymo's lead management system, focusing on the efficiency and consistency of data flow in state update forms. This enhancement simplifies the process of updating lead states by pre-populating fields in state update forms with corresponding values from lead profiles, ensuring that your data management is both streamlined and accurate.

Key Features:

  • Automatic Field Pre-population: Fields in state update forms will automatically populate with values from corresponding fields in the lead profile, provided they share the same attribute code.

  • Bidirectional Data Update: Changes made in these shared fields within the state update form will reflect in the lead profile, maintaining real-time synchronization.

  • Customizable Configuration: This functionality can be easily configured through JSON settings in the lead module, providing flexibility to tailor data flow as per organizational needs.

This update ensures that if a state update form and the lead profile have fields with the same field code or attribute code, those fields can be pre-populated with values from the lead profile. Additionally, any value entered or changed in the state update form for common fields will get updated in the lead profile field as well. This feature is particularly useful in maintaining consistency and reducing manual data entry efforts. img img img


1.Streamlining Activity Titles

In our ongoing efforts to refine and enhance the Vymo user experience, we're excited to share an important update that focuses on simplifying activity titles. This change is part of our commitment to making information presentation more straightforward and less cluttered.

What's Changing? - Simplified Activity Titles: We're streamlining activity titles across all Vymo environments, including calendars and activity lists. The new format will feature only the primary "lead record name" or "partner record name" instead of the previous "VO" terminology. This simplification aims to avoid confusion and make it easier to understand and navigate through activities.

  • Unaltered Detailed View: While we're simplifying the titles, the detailed view of each activity remains comprehensive. You'll still have access to all the specifics, including information about referred records (previously referred to as VOs).

Why This Matters:

  • Enhanced Clarity: In some cases, like with Kemper, activity titles included the names of both the primary and referred records, which could be confusing, especially when these names were identical. For example, an activity titled "Document Collection with Nikita and Nikita" didn't convey the involved parties. By showing only the primary record's name, we eliminate this ambiguity.

  • Understanding 'Activity Roll-Up': Our feature called "activity roll-up" displays activities associated with interconnected records. For instance, an activity with "Lead L1" could also appear under "Lead L2" if L1 is a referral on L2's record. While this is useful, showing both names in the title was sometimes more puzzling than helpful.

What's New: Activity Title Simplification: The titles will be streamlined to present only the primary VO's information. Unaltered Detailed View: Comprehensive details, including the specifics of referred VOs, will remain accessible within the individual activity detail pages.

We have refined the way activity titles are displayed by focusing on the primary VO, which simplifies the user interface and avoids confusion that could arise from the display of multiple, similarly named VOs in a single title.

2.Region Accessibility Refresh

A significant enhancement to our region-based access control mechanisms has been made. This improvement focuses on streamlining group creation and membership management, offering a more efficient and user-friendly experience.

Key Features:

Streamlined Group Creation: The group setup process has been optimized for efficiency. However, contrary to earlier information, there is no self-serve UI available for this feature at the moment.

Automated Membership Evaluation: Utilizing advanced algorithms, the system now dynamically assesses user attributes against group criteria in real time, ensuring precise and appropriate group assignments.

Real-Time Authorization: Access rights are updated instantaneously with any changes in group memberships, bolstering the security and precision of access control.

Update on Configuration Process: In response to recent feedback, it's important to clarify that the configuration for these enhancements is currently managed with the support of our technical team, rather than through a self-serve UI.

3.Web UX Enhancement for lead duplications

We're thrilled to introduce the Web UX Enhancement to the Vymo platform. This update aligns the web interface experience, offering a unified and intuitive approach to managing duplicate leads.

Key Features:

'Duplicates List' Bottom Sheet: A new feature that surfaces during lead creation, providing a clear view of potential duplicates for efficient decision-making.

Enhanced Lead Update Process: Any updates made to a lead's 'Product' field are automatically reflected in both the lead's profile and the current state.

The feature uses defined duplication logic/rules, varying per client, to compile the duplicates list. The enhancement is integrated into the lead creation flow, providing immediate visibility of duplicates.

1.Audit history Enhancement

We are pleased to announce an enhancement to handle the load of the Audit History feature on the Lead Details page, aimed at significantly improving performance and resource management. This update will be available on the web platform.

Background The Audit History has been an essential tool for tracking all changes made on the Lead Details page. In the past, loading the full audit trail was part of the initial lead details request, which was comprehensive but not optimized for performance.

Enhancements On-Demand Loading The Audit History will now utilize an on-demand loading mechanism. This means the Audit History data will be fetched only when the Audit History section is expanded. This change is designed to reduce the initial page load time and save valuable resources. Smart Caching A smart caching feature has been implemented, ensuring that once the audit history is loaded, it will be stored locally. If you stay on the same Lead Details page, the data won't be fetched again, thereby reducing redundant network calls and enhancing the user experience.

The Audit History API will trigger only when the user expands the Audit History section. The details page is optimized for faster performance by loading the Audit History section only when expanded. User Experience With these enhancements, users can expect: - A quicker and more responsive interface when accessing the Audit History and Lead details page. - Improved performance due to reduced data load on initial page requests. - An overall smoother and more efficient experience when using the Lead Details page.


2.Intelligent Business Metric Display Update for Web - Zero Target Handling

We are pleased to announce With this update, business metrics with a target of zero will be intelligently excluded from calculations and display. This refinement ensures that the business metrics presented are always relevant and meaningful, providing you with a clearer picture of your business performance. This update will be available on the web platform.

What's New: Intelligent Computation: We will eliminate the percentage achievement computation from metrics when the set target is zero to prevent any misleading statistics.

Enhanced Partner Page: We have made improvements to the partner page. If the potential data for business metrics is zero across the board, it will be excluded to preserve the integrity and clarity of the data presented.

Selective Visibility: Metrics for partners that lack potential data will not appear on the Details page of partner records, ensuring that only relevant and actionable metrics are in view.

  • Wherever there is an absence of data for 'Target' and 'Achievement,' the Business Metrics card will indicate 'NO DATA. img
  • In the Business Metrics section, when there is data for 'Target' but no data for 'Achievement,' the 'Target' values will be displayed in the 'Target' column, while the 'Achievement' column will not be displayed. img
  • In the Business Metrics section, when there is data for 'Achievement' but no data for 'Target,' the 'Achievement' values will be displayed in the 'Achievement' columns, while the 'Target' column will not be displayed.
