Data Table and Custom Column View

Under the ‘Land Deals‘, ‘House Deals‘, and ‘Buyers List‘ tabs there is a data table that displays the records under that section. Because of screen space, we do not display all columns of information for each record; instead we only display a small portion of the record data as a preview and to get the complete set of data on that particular record click the ‘Edit‘ option next to the record to open it and access all the fields of information.

How To Change The Default Column View of The Overview Table

To customize what columns of data to display on the data table click the ‘View‘ option at the top of the data table.

Select the columns that you would like to display on the data table and then click the ‘Save‘ button to save the change.

How To Reset The Column View Back To The Default View

To reset the column view back to the original recommended view, click the ‘View‘ option to load the Custom Columns settings then click the ‘Reset To Default‘ button.

What Is The Purpose of The Buyer’s List?

The ‘Buyers List’ section on the Investment Dominator is where we manage the disposition or marketing/sales side of the business. Jack Bosch talks about this in the Land Profit Generator training program in Session 16: Internet Marketing Basics.

Basically, the ‘Buyers List’ a list of prospects that you grow, refine and nurture over time. Since real estate is not an impulse buy, it normally takes a few touches before you sell a property to someone and the ‘Buyers List’ helps you keep track of these people while they are in that decision-making period.

Here are some helpful articles that talk about the ‘Buyers List’ in more detail, but we also recommend that you watch the Land Profit Generator Module 16 to get the overall concept of this important list.

How To Undo Actions

Most single actions that you or other users in your system do (for example, changing a value of a field, deleting a record, merging a record, creating a record… etc) are logged and indexed under ‘My Team> Activity Log’.  Also under this section, you can ‘Undo’ past actions.  So for example, if you accidentally deleted some information from a record you can look up the action record of when you deleted the information and undo that action, which will restore the previous data back into that field.

How Tags and Tagging Records Work In The Investment Dominator CRM

Tags can be used to index Land, House and Contact records in the system without affecting their stage/status. You can use tags to keep track of mailing campaigns, interests, and grouped characteristics.

For example, say you wanted to test the results of two separate direct mail pieces; what you could do is tag one group of people with a “Letter A” tag and another group of people with a “Letter B” tag. After you send out your mail you could export your records to see how many people responded (moved to the next status) that had the “Letter A” tag vs the “Letter B” tag and this would tell you which letter was more effective.
