We sometimes have "fast forwards" for deals in our sales pipeline. For example sometimes customers don't want a presentation of our product but directly buy that product. Then we directly forward the according deal to the "sold" stage i.e. the deal skips the pipeline stage "product presentation".
If I now create a deals filter with condition "Deal phase was Product Presentation" Pipedrive shows even those deals which never reached the stage "Product Presentation" but only came past it when being fast forwarded.
For us it would be helpful if Pipedrive would allow to show only those deals which reached a certain pipeline stage indeed.
