How Do I Interact With Alma?
Interaction with Alma couldn't be simpler. Using a chat interface on the DealMachine platform, you can ask questions and receive data-backed answers. While Alma's realm of knowledge is strictly confined to real estate, within that domain, it can deliver valuable insights to drive your business forward.
Whenever you open a lead card in DealMachine, you'll find a glowing orb in the bottom right-hand corner. That's Alma! The chat window should open automatically with each new lead, however if you've opened the lead card before, the chat window will only open if prompted.
To prevent Alma from opening automatically with new leads, click your profile picture, go to application settings, and you'll see a switch to turn this feature off at the bottom of the list.
