FranConnect

All messages sent and received to your Text Request dashboards will sync with your FranConnect contacts when this integration is active.

This is useful for texting from multiple dashboards under one FranConnect account. You can also text leads and customers directly within your FranConnect account using the Text Request Chrome extension.

Note, only contacts that already exist within FranConnect will be textable. Any contacts' phone numbers that only exist within Text Request will need to be manually added to FranConnect, and any messages prior to the sync will not be included. Syncing starts with messages sent after the integration is turned on.

All dashboards within your Text Request account can use this integration. So, for example, 10 reps could text from 10 dashboards under the same account. You just need an admin level user within both Text Request and FranConnect to set the integration up.

Contact Sync & Lead Texting

The Contact Sync feature in our FranConnect integration allows you to add sales leads and CRM leads from your FranConnect account to your Text Request contacts list. Sales leads and CRM leads are separate, so you can sync just one, or both, whenever you want. You can also choose which dashboards you want this feature active on.

To set up Contact Sync:

1. Go to the Integrations section of your Text Request menu.

2. Locate the FranConnect integration box underneath the Everyday Tools section.

3. Select Set up for either CRM Leads & Contacts or Sales Leads.

The Lead Texting feature in our FranConnect integration allows you to text incoming sales and CRM leads from your Text Request dashboard. Leads receive an automated message you’ve written whenever they text in. Again, sales leads and CRM leads are separate, so you can set up just one, or both, whenever you want. You can also choose which dashboards you want this feature active on. 

To set up Lead Texting:

1. Go to the Integrations section of your Text Request menu.

2. Locate the FranConnect integration box underneath the Everyday Tools section.

3. Select Set up for either CRM Leads & Contacts or Sales Leads.
