When adding a new Sale, you will have the option to fill in any helpful fields. The Client/Company & Type are locked in once the Sale has been created, but the Title, Manager, etc. can be updated at any time.

Field Options when adding a Sale:

  • Title: A summary of the opportunity, such as "Distribution Lead" or "Looking to update their website".

  • Contact: Company’s main point of contact on the sale.

  • Salesperson: Select the staff member who will be responsible for this sale.

  • Sales Type: The Type field will be presented if your account has been configured with additional Sales Types.  These Types allow you to more precisely define your various Sales processes along with all of the data points and processes that go with them.  When creating a Sale, the Type can be used to determine which of these processes this specific opportunity should follow.

  • Progression: Where in the process your Sale should begin. Read more about Progressions here.

  • Created: When this opportunity was first identified.  This field is great for entering opportunities retroactively.  

  • Comments: Record any brief notes you might have regarding this opportunity.

After you fill in the required fields, press the Create Sale button to begin tracking all of your time, notes, progress and correspondence. More information on managing your Sales can be found on the View a Sale page.
