Let's Understand the Booking flow - 


Understand booking flow


Each sales agent (Sales app user) can create multiple bookings on a single lead using the Sales app. Each booking will go through an approval process before it is closed. After an agent creates a booking, it is sent for approval.

Note: The approval process has two levels of approvals: level 1 and level 2


Both level 1 and level 2 approvers get options to approve or reject the booking. If a booking gets rejected at any level, the bookings goes back to the creation stage, where the agent can now edit booking info and send for approval again. And then the approval will start from level 1 onwards.


Note: Any old bookings already present in the system, before this feature release, will appear as "Auto-approved".

Let's understand, the complete process of creating bookings and how to send for approval?



Creating a Booking & Mandatory Fields(*)


A Booking gets automatically created when a lead is moved to Final Negotiation or Booking Done Bucket.  

When the user moves a lead from a bucket (claimed/Interested/meeting done/visit done) to Final Negotiation Or Booking Done, a Booking form comes up, where the user requires to fill-in Booking details.


Note: 

i. While moving the lead to Final Negotiation or Booking Done bucket, the Configuration (*) field is mandatory. However, it's advised to fill in all the details appear in Booking Form i.e. Unit No, Floor No, Base Price, Floor Price, Area(sqft), Building Name, etc...

ii. You can always go back and Update the Booking Information. 




iii. More bookings can be created on leads in the Booking Done bucket, from the lead details screen.



Registering co-applicants


On a particular booking, multiple co-applicants can now be added. This can be done when editing booking info for a particular booking. Clicking on "Add co-applicant" and specific "co-applicant's" details like his name, PAN, and Aadhaar details.


Note: Co-applicants can also be removed from the booking info.


Sending bookings for approvals


After bookings are created on the lead, each booking can be sent for approval after filling up all necessary information. After a booking is sent for approval, its approval status is now visible on the screen.



If all the required information is not filled up in the booking info form, the booking will not be sent for approval and the screen will display a blocker message.


 

Note: 

i. Bookings can be removed and cancelled after creation. No booking can be cancelled or removed during pending for approval state.



ii. Once a booking is sent for approval, booking info cannot be edited further. The status of approvals at each level are visible on the app, as soon as the booking is sent for approval.





Booking approval status


Following are the different approval status for a booking:



Update booking info


You can update the Booking Info by clicking on the edit option as shown in the pic below. The Booking Info can be edited anytime before sending it to approval.

Note: 

i. Incase the Booking request gets rejected by the approver, you can go back to the edit option and update the Booking Info.


 


ii. Update the Booking Info once the Booking is rejected by Approver:

If a Booking request is rejected by the approver (might be the approver asks for additional/correct details), you can Update the Booking Info and send it back for the Approval.




iii. Mark the lead failed once the Booking is rejected by Approver:

If a Booking request is rejected by the approver (could be any reason), you can still mark the lead failed. The below pic shows how a lead can be moved to the Failed bucket post Booking request rejected by approver shown in the above point.



Approving Bookings


Once a booking is sent for approval, both level 1 and level 2 approvers will receive email notifications. The listed approvers can login to the Dashboard Bookings page and can view the status and approve or reject the booking. 

When approving or rejecting any booking, notes can also be added. 

Note: Approver can also attach more documents while approving a booking, for example, offline booking form, booking checklist, etc.


All bookings created are visible on the Bookings page (Dashboard). On this page, bookings can be filtered by selecting different mandates, agent-wise, booking-status wise.
