There are times in every insurance agency's life when an agent decides to leave or is let go. In order to keep the lines of communication open (and personal), you will want to assign their clients to a new point of contact in your company. Additionally,  you may want to send an email to the clients of the old agent from their new agent and use it as an opportunity to schedule a call or an in-person meeting. 

Here are the steps to make that happen. You will want to begin with creating the custom email before you delete the old agent's User profile:

1.) From your Contacts tab go to Contacts > New contact list



2.) Name your list  and set criteria. In this case, you want active customers
(Contact type > Equals > Customer) who have the old agent John as their primary contact (Primary contact > Equals > John Jurgens). Click Save. 



3.) Continue editing your list or proceed to sending communication.  Select email or card depending on the type of introduction you care to make.





4.) Name your communication type



5.) Compose the email to the clients and select the agent who will be the new primary contact from the "From" dropdown. You can Insert fields to your email by clicking on the which will populate commonly used fields (e.g. Company name).

Click the Preview tab to take a look at your email. When ready to schedule, click Next.
