 Lets say we have five counties in our MLS: //​Sarasota//,​ //​Pinellas//,​ //​Manatee//,​ //​Hillsborough//,​ and //​Charlotte//​. ​ We additionally have 4 agents working under us: //​Matthew//,​ //Mark//, //Sarah//, and //​Cletus//​. ​ We have a very good working relationship with these fellows, but Cletus is our half-cousin twice removed that lived under power-lines all of his life.  He's a great guy, but you can't always rely on him to jump on leads when you give them to him. Lets say we have five counties in our MLS: //​Sarasota//,​ //​Pinellas//,​ //​Manatee//,​ //​Hillsborough//,​ and //​Charlotte//​. ​ We additionally have 4 agents working under us: //​Matthew//,​ //Mark//, //Sarah//, and //​Cletus//​. ​ We have a very good working relationship with these fellows, but Cletus is our half-cousin twice removed that lived under power-lines all of his life.  He's a great guy, but you can't always rely on him to jump on leads when you give them to him.

-=== Good Use-Case === 
  
  
 As agents ourselves, we are able to deal with most of these leads, but cannot get to houses in the Sarasota region easily, so we want to always assign these leads to Mark and Cletus, who live in the area.  Because Cletus is a bit unreliable, we'll give him a lower weight than the other agent in the area, Sarah. ​ If we assign Cletus a weight of 1 and Sarah a weight of 5, Sarah will receive five times the number of leads that Cletus will. As agents ourselves, we are able to deal with most of these leads, but cannot get to houses in the Sarasota region easily, so we want to always assign these leads to Mark and Cletus, who live in the area.  Because Cletus is a bit unreliable, we'll give him a lower weight than the other agent in the area, Sarah. ​ If we assign Cletus a weight of 1 and Sarah a weight of 5, Sarah will receive five times the number of leads that Cletus will.
  
 +We also want to assign leads from Pinellas county. We can select both regions (Pinellas and Sarasota) for Sarah. She will now be a part of both round robins. ​

-=== Bad Use-Case === 
  
-We want to divide the properties as presented in the //Good Use-Case//, but because Sarah is so good, we'd also like her to get leads from the Pinellas county which currently has all of the leads assigned to Mark.  This won't work, because Cletus shouldn'​t have access to the Pinellas leads; and conversely, Mark shouldn'​t have access to Sarasota leads. ​ The listings from one of these counties will need to be manually assigned.

-If its not a problem that the agents intermingle,​ we can make a new hybrid region out of Sarasota and Pinellas, which we'll call //​Sarasota/​Pinellas//​. ​ This can then be divided among all three agents. ​ This requires a bit of setup and cannot easily be maintained. ​ However, if you don't see these regions changing much, that is something we can configure for you.

-===== Bulk Reassignment ​=====+===== FAQ =====
  
-Go in the CRM to the **Leads** tab and check the boxes to the right of the leads you would like to reassign (or assign if they are unassigned).+**My idle lead reassignment isn't working. ​ Am I doing something wrong?**
  
-{{::​bulkleadreassignment1.jpg?900|}}+99% of the time, this is because the Enabled/​Disabled field is set to "​Disabled"​. ​ Additionally,​ if there are no other agents assigned to the region of the lead in question, that lead will have nowhere to go and won't move.

-{{::​bulkleadreassignment2.jpg?600|}}+**What happens if a Lead inquires about a region I don’t have set up in my Geographic Round Robin?**
  
-The options for Agent/​Lenderyou can either choose ​an agent/​lender,​ unassigned or round robinIf you choose Round Robinthen you will need to specify which round robin you would like to do+If a region is not in the Geographic Round Robinthese leads will come through as unassigned. We can prevent this, by creating ​an Else categoryThis functions like any other regionit just covers leads from any region that is not already defined in the round robin. ​

-Now, check the **Confirm Reassign** box and click **Reassign**.+**Can I distribute my leads based on city / zip code?**
  
-{{::​bulkleadreassignment4.jpg?​500|}} +Yes, but we wouldn'​t advise it if it isn't the top-level search ​field on your search forms.  ​Because you don't necessarily have to select a city or zip code to perform a search -- you'll have many leads that won't get thrown into the round robin. ​ Which is totally okayyou just won'​t ​reap the full benefit of automatically assigned leads.

-**Can I distribute ​my leads based on city / zip code?**+**Why are my leads being assigned to the wrong region?**
  
-Yesbut we wouldn'​t advise ​it if it isn'​t ​the top-level search ​field on your search forms. ​ Because you don't necessarily have to select a city or zip code to perform a search -- you'll have many leads that won't get thrown into the round robin. ​ Which is totally okayyou just won't reap the full benefit of automatically assigned ​leads.+If a lead inquires about properties in multiple regions, it will always be assigned according to the Else category. This is why we always recommend using the top-level search, ​as this makes it less likely for leads to inquire about properties in two regions
