We're using our PD for the whole sales process from MQLs to Customers and we would like to keep track of details such as which marketing channel they used, which source they came from and also have the reports for this. Are there any handy tips how to do this?

    Perhaps @Amit Sarda and @Boris Tsibelman have worked with others who have set this up. Any tips for @Adela Kalkantova  guys?!

    Create custom fields to capture the source. Make sure that this field is a multiple-choice or a single choice field so you can include this in Insights.

    When writing the data to Pipedrive, in Zapier, populate this field based on  where the deal is coming from.

    Hi Amit, is there a possibility to produce a report within the dashboard section by lead source?

    You should be able to do that for Deal Sources. I haven't used the Leads functionality much to say what's possible. Ensure that the Deal Source field is either a Single Value or a Multiple Choice field.
