Sales Stages (and an Insider Reveal)

Earlier this year we introduced Project Types; the ability to store a template of project types and progress stages and use that structure to better manage the different types of projects your business might do.

With this release we introduce Sales Processes.  This lets you set up and create different sales processes for the different products and services you sell or to run a different sales process for each market or territory you operate in.  Cool right?

Top Secret Reveal:  Smart readers quickly identified that Project Types was the first fundamental step in building resource allocation and utilization.  These same smart readers have also, just this second, realised that Sales Processes is the first critical step to building out our Marketing Automation module.

This is what the new Sales Process feature looks like:

Create unlimited Sales Processes

Saved Filters

Next up we have saved filters.  Any place in WORK[etc] where you can filter your data, you can now also save that filter for instant access in the future.

For example, lets say you are the manager of your support team and you’ve just hired a new support agent.  You want to keep a close eye on the new recruit’s progress, so you would simple create a filter with these variables:

  • All support cases
  • Within the last 7 days
  • Assigned to Mr New Recruit.

Then simply hit the save button and that filter is hitched to your menu bar for next time.

Saved Filters for Future Access

Centralized Apps and Integrations

All of the WORK[etc] apps and integrations can now be accessed from the single Settings Menu.  Also note that the Outlook Add-in is now out of beta and readily available.

Other Improvements

There are also a heap of minor tweaks and improvements going live, including:

  • improved table layout when viewing projects
  • improved Web Form -> Sales Lead or Support options
  • context when viewing the activity history of a contact
  • about 100 additional help glyphs through out the inteface
  • new framework for new dashboard widgets (this needs a separate blog post!)
