Margin with goals

Hi,

We created a deal's field to track margin of a deal. To follow activity of our sales team, we track their margin monthly goal :

So we would like to create on Pipedrive a monthly goal of this field. Unfortunately, the goals are possible only with number of deals or values of deals. Is it possible to create a new feature to choose another type of goal ?

Thanks !

Alex

    Hi Alex

    I asked the same question a few days back and unfortunately this is not possible at the moment. See response below.

     

    Unfortunately this is not possible, the goals can only be set on the total value. However, if this is always in even proportion to the GP value you could potentially put your goal a bit higher to reflect that. Nonetheless, I'll share you suggestion with out team.

    Thanks for the info Mike.

    Unfortunately or GP % is in most cases different for each deal, so your suggestion is not suitable. 

    I have set up a custom field to show the GP as a value within the deal and wanted to link this value and not the deal value?

    Hi @Shaun Jones unfortunately custom fields are currently only available in our Insights reporting but not yet in our goal setting. Nonetheless, I get your use case, thanks for further explaining and I'll pass on your suggestions to our team.

    Hi @Shaun Jones thank you for your reply. I checked Insights reporting, but it's not possible to use a "number" personnal field (even with the paid plan, the field is not available)... :(

    (my field is "Marge")

    Hi @Alexandre Assous , thank you for your detailed feedback!

    As mentioned above, we are still developing Insights for it to cross-reference with Goals and also other types of custom fields, so expect good news in the future. 

    I can also tell you that having fields that perform calculations (profit margin, commissions, etc) is also in our plans, so stay tuned! Join our Research and Beta testing channel to be the first to know, if you haven't yet.

    Your suggestion to have more types of Goals has been forwarded internally for consideration.
