Lead submission form fields

First namelast nameemail address and company are required to be on the form and cannot be removed. You can add any amount of additional fields

You'll notice that you can select if the field is "required" or "hidden".

  • Required: The application form cannot be submitted without being filled out.
  • Hidden: The field is not visible on the partner side of the lead form, but it is visible when reviewing leads and can be filled out then. Hidden fields can be used to pass information into your CRM if you are integrated with one.

To customize the label of an existing form field, select the notepad icon to the far right of the field:

There are 6 different input types that can be used to collect information on lead forms:

  • Textarea - a larger text field
  • Dropdown- create a list of options the partner can choose from
  • Checkbox- a toggle option
  • Country - creates a dropdown list of all countries to be selected from
  • Region - a small text field that can be used to collect state/province/city information
Viewing leads and updating lead statuses

Once a partner has submitted a lead, you can then go through and move it through your pipeline by updating its status. 

 

To view the lead, log in to your PartnerStack account. Under "Performance & Rewards", select "Referrals", then navigate to "Leads" in the menu along the top.

When you click into the new referral (the status will reflect as "New" at that time), you'll be able to then update the status to either:

  • Qualified - This referral is deemed qualified by your team. Your partner will receive any rewards that you have set up for qualified referrals.
  • Unqualified - This referral could not be qualified by your team.

If you've marked the referral as Qualified, you'll then be able to move through and update the status to either:

  • Closed Won - Customer moved beyond a referral and is now a paying customer. Customer will receive any rewards that you have set up for closed referrals.
  • Closed Lost - Customer moved beyond a referral but did not become a paying customer.

 

Hiding leads

If there are leads in your list you no longer wish to view due to inactivity or other reasons, you can choose to remove it from your current leads view using the "Select leads to stash" option.2021-02-22_12.16.34.gif

 

Stashing a lead does not delete it entirely, but rather moves it to the "Stashed" tab.

Stashed leads can also be moved back to the Active view by using the "Select leads to restore" option.

 

Customizing lead submission statuses

To have access to this, custom lead stages need to be enabled for your account. To get this enabled, please reach out to your Customer Success Manager or email Support@PartnerStack.com.

If the stages Qualified, Unqualified, Closed won, and Closed lost don't make sense for your sales cycle, they can be customized. 

If custom lead stages are enabled for your account, they can be configured in your PartnerStack dashboard by navigating to Advanced Settings > Settings > Features > Lead statuses.

 

To customize a lead stage status, follow these steps:

  1. Log into your PartnerStack account
  2. Navigate to Settings > Features > Configure lead statuses
  3. Select "Configure" to open up the feature page
  4. Select the tab for the status you're wanting to update
  5. Enter the new status name or description, and then select "Update lead status"
