Action Plans are a set of actions that are used to complete a repeatable activity. Those actions can be a Task, Email or SMS Text Message. One example could be a Buyer Closing Action Plan. If you closed a deal, you could have set of things that you may typically want to do to communicate with your client or follow-up on post-closing activities. By setting up an Action Plan for this activity, Sparky can remind you or even communicate to your client on your behalf. This way, you will never forget to follow-up and can rely on Sparky to help.
To start, navigate to Engagement > Action Plans. You can either import a pre-defined Action Plan template from our Action Plan Library, or you can create action plans on your own.
