What is Work Alley?
Work Alley is a Digital Workflow & Communication Tool built for Real Estate Agents, Transaction Coordinators, Assistants, Teams or Brokerages. These Systems will allow you to seamlessly take a client from the sale - to the closing table - to staying in touch with that client for years to come. The goal is to be efficient is the simplest way possible. We want our users to have a Snapshot of all transactions, interactive checklists, reminders and communication tools in one place!
Who created Work Alley and why?
Over the last 2 years, a Mega-Agent, a Transaction Coordinator, and a Marketing Assistant have worked together to build this "Systems-based Website". The three have worked together for years and started sharing their systems with other agents as a way to give back to the local real estate community. Once agents saw our systems they were immediately drawn to what we were doing and looking for a way that they could implement our systems into their business. We believe in exceeding customers' expectations while maintaining a positive work/family balance. This software that we have created has helped agents provide excellent customer service while creating peace of mind knowing that nothing is being forgotten. We spent two years designing this software to help agents catapult their real estate careers to new levels, by closing more transactions and generating more referrals. Not to mention that system leverage is much less expensive than people leverage so agents are also enjoying their increased profitability.

How do I create a Custom Email?
Workflow Items or Tasks are two-fold. They can simply be a checklist task item to track or a communication item. Just below the task title there is an email text box. If you add content to that box, your Task or Workflow Item will then become a communication item. You can use this communication tool for emails to all parties of the sale or as a reminder email that you auto-schedule.
Who receives these emails?
1. You can pre-set recipients in your templates. 2. You can choose recipients in real-time within the email section. 3. You can always update or change recipients within a property email at any time.
How do I auto-schedule emails to go out?
Within each Workflow item, you can choose a date for the email to go out - just open the Worklfow Item, choose a date under Auto Send Email. Whatever content is in the body will be emailed on that selected date.

How do I delete a Property or Workflow?

How do I add People to a property?
You can add People while you are in a property: If you use the Filter/Search feature within the property you can find people already in your contacts. **See above FAQ on how to add a new person to your contacts within the property.
How do I delete a Contact?
Easy… just click the red trash can to the right of the contact info.
Why can I add duplicate Contacts?
In our businesses, some people hold multiple roles. They can also hold different roles for different transactions. Also, some people have more than one email address. This “duplicate” feature will allow you to get the correct communication item to the correct person under the correct role. For example, on one transaction you may have the Rep from a title company working the file but they are also your buyer. Just an example to make sure getting the info out is as simple and efficient as possible.
How does the Dashboard Work?
Think of The Work Alley Dashboard is your Digital Whiteboard! This interactive tool gives users a view of all transactions, where the transaction is in the process and allows you to check off key items ... all in one place. How we use our Dashboard:
- Check off workflow items directly from the Dashboard and it will seamlessly check them off in your property as well
- Take a screenshot of your Dashboard and send to your Agent or boss t provide a visual view of all transactions
- Anyone backing up the TC, Admin or Agent will have a quick reference to all files
- Provide info on all files while on once screen
Dashboard info specifically for Transaction Coordinators?
A team of transaction coordinators and agents built this Dashboard with the assistant in mind. For an assistant who coordinates transactions for multiple agents, the Dashboard provides a visual view of all transactions for all agents in one place, on one screen, organized by Agent. Users can mark tasks complete without having to go into a particular property - this comes in handy when multiple tasks are completed over a weekend or evening and users need to update their workflows. The Dashboard is a Visual Snapshot of all transactions at any time - Just screenshot and send.
How do I sort?
There are sort features on many columns throughout the site. The small arrow will indicate where you can sort.
