Before introducing a team to their Workflows in Hubly, we recommend:
Building out Workflows based on a small group of initial topics
Getting comfortable tracking client work for those topics in Hubly
Understanding (and planning for) where key hand-offs will occur
Configuring Views for quick access to specific Workflows and common dashboards (such as upcoming/overdue tasks, assigned tasks, etc)
Moving your team towards working out of one single source of truth is not without it's challenges, but this lesson is designed to help you:
Get your team up and running with Hubly
Introduce navigation of Workflows and Views
Demonstrate finding Clients and tracking work
Teach habits for finding outstanding and overdue work
Tip: If you work on a larger team, we recommend getting those who most commonly work together into smaller groups to get into Hubly together. This way your examples will be more relevant and everyone will be more engaged.
Getting your team up and running
In Hubly, navigate to the Settings page and review the User Information table to ensure that new team members have an account ready for them in Hubly:
Next, have them activate their new accounts and connect them to their CRM:
Tip: Contact Hubly Support in the Support Chat if you have any issues.
Navigating Workflows & Views
To help new team members find their bearings, we recommend starting fresh with a clear Hub. If you have Workflows on your screen (or a View active), select Clear All:
We recommend pre-configuring Views to make it easier for team members to find the dashboard of Workflows that they're looking for:
Demonstrate how to use the Workflow and Filters menus to find and filter down a summary of outstanding work:
Tip: Spend some time reviewing actual work that is currently underway for Clients, as you normally would in a team meeting
Finding Clients and tracking work
Lead your team member through the Contact Search menu to look for a client that they've recently worked on:
Soon to be the first place your team checks to see an overview of any given client, it's important to spend sufficient time getting them comfortable with the Client Card:
Introduce some of the most common client tasks that they are likely to encounter, and demonstrate how to add the client to a Workflow and customize its Tasks:
Show them how to communicate within Tasks by using the Task Description to capture relevant details:
Tip: We recommend spending some time together capturing recently encountered client tasks and to-do's
Habits for finding outstanding and overdue work
Now it's time to introduce the new habits that you would like them to build. Whether looking for outstanding work that they're assigned or an update on a client project, it's important to understand their needs and walk them through it step-by-step in Hubly.
Introduce the Hubfeed to see a summary of urgent, assigned Tasks:
And the Show Active report to see an overview of all outstanding Tasks:
Demonstrate the different types of Filters and the impact they have on the Workflow dashboard:
Identify common sets of Workflows and introduce (or create) corresponding Views:
Tip: Re-enforce the habits that you would like your team to build by working in Hubly during team meetings to review, plan, and prioritize work
