New Calls


If you click on New Calls you will see a page similar to the above, new calls that have been assigned to you will be listed here ready for you to accept (or reject), the particular details of each call are displayed across the row, you can use this information to decide if you will accept or reject the call.

Accepting Calls
To accept a call, you must click the checkbox in the Accept column. By doing this you are accepting the terms and conditions of the call (you may click on the hyperlink to view the terms and conditions prior to accepting if you wish to do so). You can also accept ALL listed calls in bulk, to do this click on the Accept All checkbox at the bottom of the page.


Rejecting Calls

To reject a call, you must click the checkbox in the Reject column, then when you click on the Update button you will see a pop-up window appear with a list of reject reasons to choose from. You should select the closest reason for why you are rejecting the call.


When you’ve selected your reason for rejecting the call, notes will appear specifying the conditions for which the call will be rejected. You must read and understand these conditions, not complying could mean the call may not get rejected.


For some reject reasons you will see an optional check box that will allow an additional action to take place when rejecting the call e.g. if you don’t cover a product you will be given the option to remove the product from your profile for all the networks you offer service with.


When you click Submit the call will be rejected and any chosen options will be actioned at this point. If you accidently chose to remove an item while rejecting a call you will need to go back into your profile pages and add back the item that you removed.


When you are finished accepting calls you must click the Update button to save your changes. You will then receive a confirmation advising the number of calls you have accepted.
