If an opportunity looks promising, you should create an opportunity record for it.

explore opportunities large

The opportunity record simplifies the following:

  1. Sales tracking. The Sales funnel chart and the Sales pipeline progression chart derives their data from your active opportunities.

  2. Gathering insight about future revenue. Collectively, opportunities can give you insight about your future projects and their revenues.

  3. Gathering insight about future resourcing. Collectively, opportunities can give you insight about what resources you will need to complete your potential work.

  4. Obtaining a clear understanding about the product or services to be delivered. The opportunity details what products or services are going to be delivered and when.

  5. Gathering insight into the status of the opportunity. VOGSY uses a set of weather-related icons to provide a quick and intuitive way to visually assess the overall health of an opportunity.

As long as you have not set the opportunity to 'Won', any project generated from the opportunity will remain in Pending status and will be displayed in light blue in the planning overviews.

You can add labels to opportunities in order to organize and track them.
