Incoming ADF Lead Support
DX1 now supports incoming leads from 3rd parties, using the ADF email format. Each dealership will have a unique email address that may be given to third parties for the purpose of sending leads into DX1.
What is ADF?
ADF is shorthand for 'Auto-data Lead Format.' It is standard code format originally developed for the auto industry that allows for the sharing of lead information between various sources.
How can I use it?
A third-party provider can deliver leads to DX1 by sending plain text emails containing ADF to a unique email address provided to DX1 dealers. Leads will be imported to the DX1 lead manager using the 'Internet' lead type and associated assignment/notification rules.
How do I know if my provider supports this format?
Many CRM systems support this format; You will need to contact your provider and ask if they support the sending of leads by ADF email.
How do I activate incoming ADF leads?
All DX1 Dealers have an active email address that is always available to receive properly-formatted leads. After verifying your provider supports sending ADF leads by email, you may find the email address your provider will need by navigating to Customers and Leads > Lead Settings > Incoming Leads. Your lead email address will be displayed on the screen.
Once you provide this email address to your provider, they will be able to start sending leads immediately.
