Automatically unfollow deal when owner is switched

Joel Gruber

Deals in our pipeline will sometimes switch owners at a certain stage. But, the previous owner continues to follow that deal unless they manually unfollow it. 

I need a way to have a user unfollow a deal when the owner changes because the pipeline can become filled with deals that are no longer relevant and it can be difficult to manually filter through all of them to identify which are in need of unfollowing. 

The only solution I have is a daily routine of checking all the deals to see if ownership has changed and manually unfollowing each one.

Does anyone know of an automated solution?

    Hi @Joel Gruber !

    Currently you'll need to use a 3rd party tool to achieve this. I suggest you take a look at the integration platforms available in our marketplace, as they allow you to transfer and manipulate data outside the scope of our own native features. 

     

    PS - We'd like to ask you to please not use 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 them from your post and replaced them with more pertinent topics. Thank you!

    They are, however, the place to be to stay on top of what’s coming down the line: 😉

    Thank you for the response! I am using zapier to help with a lot of my automation, but I haven't found any options that allow tasks in relation to following for a deal or lead. 

     

    Do you know if any integration platforms allow manipulation in regard to following?

    @Joel Gruber you should check out Integromat. 1000x more powerful (and cheaper and easier to use) than Zapier. And yes, they have a module to remove a follower from a deal.

    I'm also interested in "automatically unfollow deal when owner is switched". When we export data in which field can I find the followers of a given deal ?
