Our new and enhanced Opportunity Fitness gives you an “at-a-glance” view of the current health of any Opportunity using indicators — both pre-defined and custom — that you can configure to meet your own organisation’s specific business needs ⤵
There are 11 system indicators — these are pre-defined but have customisable rules — and custom indicators — based on Opportunity fields — can also be created. Each indicator can be set for all pipelines, for a selected pipeline, or an individual stage of a particular sales processSales ProcessSales Process is a series of strategic steps or a set of activities aimed at driving sales growth through the alignment of personnel, market insight, methodologies, relevant business units, and technology..
Every indicator has its own set of rules. Rules determine the Fitness of the Indicator and then contribute to the overall Fitness of the Opportunity. Fitness Rules are always calculated in order — At “Risk” → Pay “Attention” → “Notice“. If the rule is matched, then the Fitness Indicator is assigned the corresponding label for the rule.
For each indicator, different levels can be set to appear: “Notice” → “Pay attention” → “Take action”. These levels can be customized by each company to show the urgency of the indicator as it applies to a particular opportunity. When they are enabled, salespeople and managers can clearly see if any of these indicators show up on an opportunity. These are your defined risk factors — with increased risk as the level of the indicator moves higher ⤵
Fitness rules can be deactivated. If the rule is deactivated, then this indicator has a label of deactivated rule.

Fitness is supported in the Archive. When an Opportunity is archived, the Fitness Indicators active at that time are remembered on the Opportunity. Users viewing the Opportunity in Archive will be able to see what Fitness Indicators were good/bad at the time when it was archived.
