Nudges Connector

1. Feature Overview

The LeadSquared Nudges Connector sends nudges (push notifications) to your user’s desktop and mobile devices for various events, such as Lead Create, Upcoming Tasks, New Opportunity Creation, Activity Completion, etc.

Additionally, you can create custom nudge templates and add images to them, for custom events such as policy update announcements, upcoming holidays, etc. You can also add and configure actions your users can perform through these nudges (e.g., View Lead Details, Call Lead, etc.).

This connector will help you –

  • Close More Leads – Help your users achieve their goals by sending reminders and important updates as nudges.
  • Engage Your Team – Help your team prioritize key tasks with custom messages, program highlights, and policy updates.
  • Personalize Notifications – Send custom nudges to your users, unique to your organization.

To know more about this connector, please refer to Nudges via Carter.

Note:

  • If the Mobile App Notifications Connector is installed and configured on your account, you will not be able to send nudges to your user’s mobile device. You must uninstall the Mobile App Notifications Connector before you install the Nudges Connector.
  • To send nudges to your user’s desktop, Carter must be enabled on your account. Contact us at support@leadsquared.com or your account manager to get it enabled for your account.

2. Prerequisites

  • You must be an Administrator to configure this connector.
  • The Nudges Connector is a paid feature. To enable it on your account, please reach out to your account manager, or write to support@leadsquared.com.
    • To send desktop notifications, Carter must be enabled on your account.
  • To send mobile notifications, your users must be running the following versions of the mobile app –
  • Users must be signed in to the LeadSquared mobile and/or the web app to receive notifications.
  • Users must be connected to the internet on their mobile and/or desktop devices to receive notifications.

 

3. How it Works

To send nudge notifications, install and set up the Nudges Connector in your account. To send desktop notifications (in addition to mobile notifications), configure Carter Settings as well during installation.

Once the connector is installed, configure the templates that will go out as nudges to your users. You can choose from the default templates that are available, or you can build your own custom template from scratch.

After the templates are configured, nudges are sent to your users based on –

  • The pre-defined events for default templates.
  • Events you configure through automation triggers for custom templates. Ensure that the category you select while creating the template is the same as the automation trigger. For example, if you create a custom template with the Activity template, you must create an automation using an activity trigger (activity create, activity update, etc.)
  • You can also send one-time nudges to your users (in bulk) from the User Settings page.

 

4. Install the Connector

Note: The entity (Lead, Opportunity, Activity, Task, and User) you selected as the category in your custom template should be the same entity you select as an automation trigger.
