Training Department Announcements

We have created new Case types in MyPineapple to ease your process when running into DOS inquiries. A friendly reminder that Cases is our support system where we encourage you to submit all inquiries you may have.

You will now see a total of 3 different DOS related cases under the Cases module:
1. DOS Training Inquiries: use this case type if you have a question regarding how to use the DOS system and its features.

2. DOS set up Inquiries: Use this case type if you are a broker-owner or team leader looking into your team’s setup. This is also great for all brokers who are having access limitation issues.

3. DOS Technical Issues: Experiencing a technical error in DOS? Create a case for this and we can help point you in the right direction! 

Pineapple Juice – How does it work?

Pineapple Juice creates customized learning journeys for our agents through “trails”. Within each “trail”, the content is broken down into “modules” and then again into bite-sized “units”. For example, the “MyPineapple” trail has a “Leads” module and a “Lead Types and Stages” unit. 

But that’s not all! The more you use the system, the more points you will earn that can be redeemed for rewards – stay tuned for more information!
