Leads can go unmatched in the boberdoo system for many reasons. Not only does a lead need to match all of the exact parameters of a filter set in order to match, but there are also dozens of other checks that the lead needs to pass. Furthermore, even if a lead successfully matches to a buyer's filter set but the delivery of the lead fails, the lead will go unmatched.
To illustrate the point, your lead may have gone unmatched for one or more of the following reasons:
Because there are so many checks, the boberdoo lead distribution system matches leads to buyers on an exclusionary basis. This means, that we can report when a lead does not match, but cannot always recite the exact reason that the lead went unmatched.
If your unmatched lead is displayed with a blue unmatched tag like the image above, your lead did not match to any active partner filter sets at the time the lead entered the system. The best way to troubleshoot the problem is to start with the four most common reason a lead goes unmatched.
If each of these four settings check out and you still don't know why your lead went unmatched, then your lead is not selling for a less-common reason (see the list at the top of this page). Be sure to check through any technical settings you have set for your buyers and try again. If you still can't figure out the problem, our support team would be happy to help.
Once you have identified and fixed the reason that your lead went unmatched, you can reprocess the lead to determine which buyers are now eligible to purchase the lead. From the Leads page use the unmatched lead's Reprocess Lead tool. This will pop a window that allows you to accept and assign or decline the lead. Click the Accept & Assign Lead button. If one or more buyers are eligible to purchase the lead, you will be given the option to automatically reprocess the lead or manually match the lead.
The System automatic process button processes the lead as if it entered the system in real-time. This means the lead will match to the correct filter set(s) based on the business rules and priorities you have set up. The Match with checked button allows you to hand-pick the eligible buyers to match the lead to.
If you click the Accept & Assign Lead button and there are still no eligible buyers, your lead will not reprocess and remain in the unmatched status.
Located in the Tools column of the Leads tab, the "Get Unmatched Reasons" tool is a real-time feature designed to display the specific reasons why filters in their CURRENT state do not match. It is not logging the unmatched reasons for every filter set for every lead for later reference.
If a lead is posted at 9 PM, and your filterset doesn't accept leads after 10 PM, if you check the filterset during the hours when you're not accepting leads, the tool will indicate the "Hour" as an unmatched reason. Similarly, if any modifications are made to the filterset between the time the lead was posted and the moment you're using the tool, it may show different reasons for the lead not matching or even indicate that the lead should now match.
This also extends to the following situations:
