The Activity List gives users the ability to view activities for a specific user, specific date, and specific activity type. Activity Lists can be customized to display selected columns. Activities can be sorted, scheduled, exported to excel, completed, viewed, edited, or deleted. Activities can also be created/edited/deleted on the Activities Tab on the contact record. The Activity List functions as a ‘to do’ list for the specified person.
On a daily basis, view or export Activity Lists to Excel to prevent things from slipping through the cracks. The Activity List allows users to schedule activities for one or multiple employees based on existing filters, and export to Excel.
MarketSharp has the ability to schedule an activity to an individual or a group of employees based on an existing filter.
