Private Filters aka How to Reduce Noise in Your Filters List

Filters in Pipedrive let you create various types of reports about deals, organizations, people and products. They’re helpful for finding specific data like “Deals closed last month” fast.

Historically, all Pipedrive filters have been publicly shared across all users in a company.  This works perfectly fine in a small team where the number of filters is low and they’re easy to find. In large teams, however, it means trouble – if everyone’s filters are visible to everyone then there’s a lot of noise, and finding either your personal filters or the filters you need to use becomes slow and cumbersome.

To rectify this, we created Private Filters that allow you to find your personal filters with ease without having to create “named filters” anymore. With Private Filters, it’s easy to view the filters you’ve created without needing to scroll through a list containing dozens or hundreds of irrelevant ones. You can easily create new filters without littering everyone else’s view. (more…)

The process was tedious – copying and pasting client data from CRM, looking for relevant testimonials and case studies, and dealing with Excel to calculate development costs. After spending hours on those documents, we didn’t know if the clients had spent enough time on reading them, or if they had even opened them.

Yes, we’re selling into a marketplace flooded by sales messages and advertisements everywhere we turn. It’s no wonder some sales proposals collect dust in inboxes while “more urgent” matters are addressed, and others are dragged straight to the trash.

Here’s what’s holding your client back from signing and what you can do about it: (more…)
