How to Update the Lead Status
From Contacts > Distributed Leads, you can update the status of the lead to move it through the sales pipeline. Additionally, you can offer feedback to your supplier about a lead.
- From Contacts > Distributed Leads, select the Lead to update.
- From the Distributed Lead, select Feedback or Update Status.
- From Lead Feedback, you will be able to provide additional information about this lead and/or assign it to a sales rep until the status is changed to Unqualified/Invalid or Qualified Opportunity.
- From Update Status, you will be able to change the status to Open, Contact Contacted, Nurture, Unqualified/Invalid or Qualified Opportunity. Choosing to update the status to Unqualified/Invalid or Qualified Opportunity essentially closes the lead, so leaving feedback is no longer an option.
