You can choose to see activity based on the sales reps and tags, pipelines, deal stages, and both opportunities with and without activity.
This report is useful for showing what is actually going on inside of a specific opportunity by giving you a more granular view of the activity within your sales organization:
- Status is adjusted in the Status field for that opportunity.
- Notes are pulled from the Notes section of that opportunity.
- Upcoming tasks are associated to future reminders for that opportunity and tasks are all total reminder for that opportunity.
- Adjust the date range to see all of the activity for opportunities that are closing during the period.
When creating a pipeline stage, you can choose to set a standard for how often you should email or call leads associated with that opportunity.
The associated report, the Follow-Up report, shows how many calls or emails you should have sent alongside the calls and emails you actually sent.
The number of logged calls show up as the Total, and the number or calls you should have made show up as the Goal. It is the same for emails. The Total number of emails are the number of IMAP emails and smart emails sent to contacts that are associated with that opportunity. The Goal is the number of emails designated in the Sales Automation Policy for the deal stage.
Below is a breakdown of the analytics for the Follow Up Report:
Saving and Scheduling Reports
