Activities in Big Biller

In this article, we’ll review creating and managing Activities within Big Biller. Activities can be created for anything you do to run your desk, and can be attached to People, Company, or Job Order records. They’ll help you keep track of your daily notes, conversations, and events.

Activities can be logged to document completed actions such as phone conversations, emails, etc. They can also be used to schedule follow-ups or reminders for future dates/times as well. All of your scheduled and completed activities will flow to your Planner, where you can manage them day-to-day.

From within Big Biller, there are two main ways to create Activities:

  • From a list of multiple records

To log or schedule activities from an individual record:

  • Navigate to the Person, Company, or Job’s Datasheet for which you wish to create the Activity
  • Locate the Open Activities and Completed Activities cards
    • Open Activities = any Activity associated with this record that has not yet been completed
    • Completed Activities = any Activity associated with this record that has already been completed
  • Each card will have an associated icon in the top right corner
    • The Completed Activities card has a Log  icon which allows you to log Activities as completed
      • Note: this icon will appear in other places within the software such as Pipelines, the Planner, and your Daily Agenda in the Sidebar
    • Clicking the Log icon will open the Add Completed Activity window which allows you to select the appropriate Activity Type, enter corresponding details, and relate any necessary records
    • Click the Log button when complete
      • The Log & Add Follow-up button allows you to log this Activity as completed and also schedule a follow-up without leaving the Activity window
    • This Activity will now show in the Completed Activities card of all related records and in the Planner
