4 Quick Shortcuts to "Go into Detail" of Records in Pipeliner CRM

4 Quick Shortcuts to "Go into Detail" in Pipeliner CRM Records

The number of features within Pipeliner CRM has grown considerably over the last few years. In CRM software, the most important feature is still accessibility of record detail, where we all store vital information about our sales opportunities, leads, accounts and contacts. When developing new features, we always look over this functionality all over again: how to easily access record detail. Here are 4 Quick Shortcuts to "Go into Detail" in Pipeliner CRM Records:

What does "Go into Detail" mean?

In a sales CRM you can track numerous types of records. In Pipeliner CRM, we simplified it by breaking data down into four primary types of records:

  • Account - A customer--the individual or company--with whom you are working on a lead or opportunity.
  • Contact - A customer--the individual or company--with whom you are working on a lead or opportunity. Most of time contacts are linked to an account.
  • Lead - An unqualified opportunity – a potential customer with the possibility of proceeding on into the sales pipeline.
  • Opportunity - A deal that has the possibility to close.

Each record type has its own different visualization in Pipeliner CRM. Here is an example of the opportunity record as it appears within the Pipeline View:

This is the overview or list view. If you would like to edit or review a sales opportunity, just double-click on it within the pipeline, and you gain a greater detail:

When you open the sales opportunity, you will see its detail--all vital information about your potential deal.

So what does "Go into Detail" mean? It's a process of opening any record in CRM in order to access its vital information, such as a form with fields, activities or documents.

Besides these main features for accessing record detail, we have added functionality in a couple of other places so you can use and access record detail in different ways:

#1: Navigator

With its breakthrough Navigator functionality, Pipeliner CRM moves far beyond the standard concept of a CRM dashboard. We have brought more focused and innovative ways of bringing instant intelligence to all users, no matter their function in the organization--intelligence that cuts out the noise for users, allowing them to easily navigate complexity and focus immediately, and in real-time, on what is most important. One of the Navigator components is "Target Overview" or target trend chart. If you would like to "Go into Detail" for the records on the trend chart, follow these steps:

Open Navigator.

Mouse over the "Target" trend chart, and click on the "dot" to open its detail.

With Pipeliner CRM Sales Performance Insights you can perform an analysis of rep or team performance. It’s as simple as a few mouse clicks into Pipeliner’s Performance Insights feature to discover how reps or teams compare to one another, who is doing well and who perhaps needs coaching or mentoring. You can "Go into Detail" for the records in Insights by following these steps:
