Configure and add fields to the Sales Activities to capture more information pertaining to the activity. Get more context from details that can be captured through fields instead of notes.
To understand this better, let us consider an example. Assume that you are in the business of selling cars and would like to capture sales activities relevant to your business. A sales activity unique to your industry would be test drives. To capture granular details about test drives you can create a field relevant to the sales activity.
To add a field to the sales activity,
Go to Admin Settings> Deals & Pipelines > Sales Activities and click .
This brings up the page where you can configure the field to associate with your custom sales activities.
Click . This brings up the Add field overlay. Choose the type of field you wish to add and click . All existing types of fields are supported for the new custom fields under Sales activity.
Note: Max 5 of each field type are supported.
Configure the field by adding the field description and values and click.
This creates a new custom field under sales activities.
You can capture data using this field while associating a custom sales activity with your contact.
Adding dependencies to the fields
You can also add dependencies to the fields added under custom sales activity. For example, in the case of our example, if you would like to record the model year number that the customer is interested in, you can capture it using dependent fields. Create a dependent field titled ‘Model year’ and associate it with the ‘Vehicle Tested’ field.
- Dependent fields can be created on top of Custom fields created.
- The max dependency field limit is 100 in all the plans
- Your sales activity contains the following default fields:
