    Hi @Evaldas Taroza , please keep from using the What's New? or What's Planned? topics in your posts: they are read-only topics used by Pipedrive to communicate updates to our community members. 
    I have removed that topic, from the post and replaced them with more pertinent topics for you 🙂

    To use and synchronize group-mail adresses. In our company we have mail adresses like [email protected] for example. And many people work with this mail. Right now it is not possible to work with mail adresses like this in Pipedrive because only one person can manage it in Pipedrive. Would be a big game changer for us.

    Probably not stand-out features for PD but I find a real bottleneck is in the mail PD mail client and the scheduling of activities that are created ad-hoc (and therefore are not suitable for automation by PD).  

    1. ) We auto-sync across from G-Suite and one feature I would love to see within the PD mail list view is the ability to 'star' ⭐ emails (similar to the way Gmail provides this facility).  Even adaptation of the existing tagging function that is available for deals and people. 

    We filter out a lot of 'noise' using the PD address blocking functionality found in user settings, but often through the day, I have my head stuck in mail finding I need to return to individual mail items for action (This despite the fact that they are already matched to deals).    Adding a 'starring' function would just be really helpful and make our large inbound mail volume just that much more manageable and more efficient. 

    2.) We also use PD for our supply chain communications, so while an email is automatically mapped to a supplier org/person,  we receive a lot of comms from suppliers that directly relates to our customer deals.  ... So we have additional demands on our time in associating mail items to deals 'manually.' 

    As a lot of this supply-chain email that needs to be manually associated to customer deals always carries a numerical customer deal reference embedded in the subject line of emails, perhaps the ability to match on a user-defined text string in the subject line could be used to 'automatch' mail items that need to be associated to deals.  (of course, this has a much broader application than just our specific bucket-list item)

    Together these suggestions would dramatically improve our mail handling efficiency.  We perform 80+% of our comms in PD at the moment, despite having g-suite Gmail clients open.  .. As far as I am concerned the more work we can do within PD the better. 

    3.) When scheduling followups, I find a real 'slow-down is having to manually schedule activities with no shorthand way of scheduling activities forward.   eg;   days/weeks/months  > +3d,  +3w,  +3m respectively. 

    image

    Similar functionality exists within the automation editor but the interface is quite different with selections being standard pulldowns.    .. What I'm talking about is the ability to be able to enter +3w directly into the date field and having the calendar auto-schedule 3 weeks forward (by way of example)

    1. A way to remove the follower feature. For cleaner owner only pipelines.
    2. A "Trigger Webhook" action in workflow automation. For cleaner webhooks.

    It seems like many things are about UI changes. With one client I had it resolved in a very hacky way - browser extension. It's the only way to modify the DOM.

    In order of priority 🤠 

    1. ADVANCED LEAD/DEAL ROUTING (some competitor examples 😉 Example 1, Example 2, Example 3).
    2. Smart Lead/Deal Scoring
    3. Ability to Completely Remove the Followers feature. This is a broken feature for owner-only workflows...
    4. More control over custom fields. Detail Sections, by Pipeline, Lock by User Permissions, etc...
    5. Workflow Automation "Send/Trigger Webhook" Action
    6. Better admin control of user onboarding and environment setup. (company default Connect email/calendar settings, signature, apps, sidebar options, User Name, User Profile picture)
    7. Remove UI elements that users don't need or don't have permissions for. Example- Leads, Leadbooster, Products, Invoice, Followers, Workflow Automation.
    8. Sync contact (person) owner down to all associated deals, same for if a deal owner changes.
    9. Better native email templates/Automation/Sequences, add Mailigen into Pipedrive natively.
    10. Better visibility controls.
    11. Fixed "See other users" permission
    12. Email Signature API endpoint. To sync gmail signatures

    The ability to import multiple prices/currencies for products, as well as the associated costs. Manually having to go into a product to add currency options or to add the cost is time-consuming when you have more than hundreds of products.

    Ability to create more automations for emails based on fields (ie. t-10 months from contract start date, send renewal email).

    Improving how a workflow automation can be shared would be best especially for sending emails. Right now, "sharing" isn't useful if the action involves sending an email. The email always comes from the user that authored the automation. The workaround for this (duplicating the automation across every users' account) is untenable: it gives automation access to all of our users, which isn't in the spirit of the Pipedrive Academy's video, "With great power comes great responsibility." And for making any changes or corrections, having a single automation to tweak and correct is far better than asking every user to go into his/her automations to make changes.

    Mail alias function. Then I could send emails directly from pipedrive and not keep switching between pipedrive and gmail.

    Hi,
    as we have returned back to manual sync for emails, it would be very useful to let us assign deal to multiple emails a t once. Actually, we need to select one email , assign to a dela, come bak and repeat: mass update  could save many time!

    1. Contact based lead routing and ability to sync ownership for related items (i.e. deals, leads, etc)
    2. Webhook as workflow action 
    3. Math calculations between fields 
    4. Universal Inbox - team email, web chat, Facebook Messenger/comments, IG comments, Twitter, etc all in one place 
    5. Better support for B2C - lead booster and website visitor features are really geared toward B2B. We don't really use the Company field, so we need to capture customer data on webform submit 
    6. Revamp smart docs and email templates to allow for placement of product variables anywhere (not just in the product table) and use them in email templates 
    7. Move user comments to a right side panel to keep all deal related internal communication in Pipedrive (picture a right side panel that functions like Slack)

    Buenas noches.

    Creo que hay una funcionalidad importante que se os ha pasado. No tenemos forma de controlar las horas en las que están conectados nuestros empleados. Que pudiéramos tener control sobre las horas de trabajo, es fundamental hoy día, ya que el teletrabajo lo tenemos incluido en nuestro día a día.

    Creo que es algo que debería actualizarse rápidamente.

    Muchas gracias.

    This is Noora from GISGRO marketing team. Simply exporting leads as csv/excel. Already this would help us a lot with lead analytics. Insights would be a great addition, but already exporting would save us a punch of time & allow many additional functions to be performed and tracked in Pipedrive.

    Email related:

    1. Ability to filter at the company level which emails are pulled in via email sync. Adding manual rules is pain, having to do it per user is worse. Ideally a rule like "sync all emails (including history) to/from any contact in Pipedrive" would be available. That way, if I add a new contact to Pipedrive as a new lead or deal I can pull in the email history, and my email in Pipedrive doesn't fill up with non sales emails.
    2. Ability to have [email protected] go to Pipedrive instead of having to either: (a) include this in a salesperson's mail where it can get lost; or (b) use a Zapier rule.
    3. Integration with ConvertKit instead of Mailchimp.

    1. When editing a "multiple options" field, give the option to add a value instead of replace existing value (adding another option vs overwriting everything in there.)
    2. Multiple owners/shared ownership of deals so it will show up in 2 people's pipelines.
    3. Improvement on insights tab, specifically for email tracking. Would be nice to see how many emails have been sent to specific companies/people. As it is right now you can only track them by users in your company, and even then just amount sent and received.
    4. Include (or give option to include) emails and notes as activities on deals. Would help keep track of what needs follow up more.
    5. Make notifications more visible, maybe a quantity showing how many notifications you have.
    6. Give option to reply to emails that weren't sent to you if they are linked with a deal.
    7. Add option to set up away messages from pipedrive, or for admin to oversee emails of a user while they are away.
