Creating a separate pipeline for active leads?
In our case, the actual sales process starts in the intro meeting with the new prospective customer - and that's the moment when we currently convert the lead to a deal. However, leads also undergo various stages before the intro meeting has been booked and delivered.
As the lead inbox and lead management features are rather limited in Pipedrive, would creating a completely separate pipeline for active leads make sense? The first stage could be f.ex. when lead enters the marketing campaign and the final stage would be the booked intro meeting. When intro meeting is booked, the lead would be marked as "won" and duplicate deal would be created to the actual sales pipeline.
Would this be feasible or would there be a better way to do it? I wouldn't like to put everything to the same pipeline as the number stages would be 10+.
