List of supported providers
Ensure leads are being sent to the email address you connected in step 1.
Any leads sent to that email address will be automatically entered into FUB and assigned to you (you can adjust this in step 7 below).
You must be the account owner and the lead source must be supported by FUB for this to work.
Non Google Account / non account owner
If you are not the account owner or using a non Google account you must have your lead notifications sent to your unique @followupboss.me email address.
Change the email address on file with your lead providers to your @followupboss.me email address.
