Welcome to Orum! Let’s get started.
|Orum recommends that you use the Chrome Browser for the best results with calling.|
First, before logging in to Orum via Google, log into your Google email account using the internet browser you will be utilizing when operating Orum. (For example, you cannot log into Google in Firefox and then login to Orum using Chrome. You need to use the same browser for both logins.)
|Hint: Your Gmail account can be either a personal Gmail or a Business Gmail. If it is a Business Gmail account, you must have permission to Upload CSV files into Google Drive. See more Info here.|
Next, after you have logged into Google, click on “New Tab” in your browser. In this new tab, go to www.OrumHQ.com.
Once the page has loaded, click on LOGIN in the upper right of the Browser.
You should now see these login options:
Login Options - Orum
Select “Log in with Google.” You should then see a screen asking to verify the account you wish to access. If you are logged in to more than one Google account, you can choose the correct account. If the correct account is not showing, please choose, “Use another account” and follow the login and permission prompts.
You should now be logged in to Orum and Google in two separate tabs within the same browser.
Now that you are logged in correctly, there are a few initial steps that must be completed before you can start dialing.
Add Call Dispositions
For Google users, you must set up your Call Dispositions before you start dialing the first time.
Navigate to the “Settings” link at the top of the Orum browser app. After you click on Settings you will see the screen shown below from which you can map the built in “Causes” on the left side to “Dispositions” on the right side. Make sure to save your results.
First, Add Dispositions that will help you track the outcomes of different scenarios depending upon if the person is interested or similar. See the pictures below that show where to add new dispositions, then Save your results.
You will see the screen shown below and you can map the built in “Causes” on the left side to “Dispositions” on the right side. Save your results.
Load a List into Orum using Google Drive
You should see a simple screen like the image below:
Load Google List
Orum will use simple Google CSV files with personal contact records to make your calls. You should have a file with rows for names ofpeople and columns such as Email, Job Title, Company and of course Phone.
|You can load a list with either the Full Name or the First Name, Last Name in separate columns. Both formats work in Orum.|
Your sheet should look similar to this example.
If your list is ready to load, click on the Search Area to upload your first Google Sheet with contact information.
|Hint: You must upload your list, even if it is already in your Google Drive. If your sheet is already in Google Drive, simply download it as a CSV file and then upload it again. This gives Orum the ability to directly manage your lists for you in Google Drive.|
You will see a prompt screen to load your list into Google.
If you have already loaded a list into Google during a prior Orum session, you can type in the first few letters of the list’s name in the search area and select the list.
Once your desired list has been selected, you should begin to see the Leads information plus all of the other fields that were shown in your original Google list upload.
Calldown List Example
Choose a Call From Number
On the lower left side, you can either call from the default phone number shown in the box or select a new phone number to call rom.
To select a new phone number, click the (+) sign, enter a prefix number (in the US, an Area Code), and then choose one of the numbers displayed. Please note that numbers are not available in all calling prefixes. Orum will assign this number to you and you can continue to dial from this number in the future.
Create a Voicemail message (Optional)
|Voicemail may not appear as an option in your account. You can add voicemail by upgrading your Orum account.|
On the left side, where is shows “Voicemail,” click the small plus sign (+) next to Voicemail to add a new message. You will then provide a phone number for Orum to call you and create a recorded message.
|Hint: You can create more than one voicemail for different calling purposes and lists. Then, when you start a dialing session, you can choose the right voicemail for that session.|
Set Auto Detect Features (Optional)
Under the Parallel Dialing setting on the left side, there are checkboxes to select what happens when the system detects an Auto Answer message or a Dialing Tree. The option settings allow you to leave a voicemail automatically in the case of an Auto Answer message and/or to Skip Dialing Trees.
