Accurate Insights for Retail/Wholesale but Avoiding Many Deals per Client

Hello Pipedrive Community,

Within our wholesale business, we may win say 3-7 deals per year per client. As you can imagine, the deals that have been won (or lost), start to add up and really make Pipedrive quite congested. For example: if you create an activity for a client and search for their name, all of the old deals will show up and as we don't use unique identifiers for deals, it's hard to distinguish which is the open deal. In effect, we want to be able to have accurate insights/analytics, but not have tons of deals stack up. In the first year, it might be fine. But as the years go on, with one client, next thing you know, we might have a list of 30-40 deals.

Has anyone else ran into this issue? If so, I'd be very interested to hear your ideas for a workaround. The k key for us is accurate insights/analytics.

Thanks in advance,
