Did you know you can use your iPad or iPhones built in dictation feature to record what you want to say, and the iPad/iPhone will automatically convert your words into text. For those of us that are slow typists, this feature can be quite useful as it makes compiling emails within the Sales Pipeline even easier than it already is with Standard Responses and our built in video tool.
Dictation won't work on every field within the Sales Pipeline - for example Customer Email and Customer Mobile. You'll know if you can dictate if when you open the keyboard to type you see a microphone icon - as pictured above. The function is available in the Notes fields on leads, and on the Messages field when crafting a Email Response. Simply hit the microphone icon and start talking. You will notice that your words begin to appear on screen as iOS converts them to text. From our experiments we've found this feature to be quite accurate across a range of diverse kiwi and aussie accents, however remember to speak slowly and clearly for best results.
If you are not seeing the microphone icon on your keyboard then you will need to activate this function. To do so;
1. Open SETTINGS on your iPad or iPhone Home screen.
2. Tap GENERAL.
3. Tap KEYBOARD.
4. Tap on the On/Off toggle next to ENABLE DICTATION. Green means Dictation is on, grey mean it is off.
