Ask PT About Using Automation to Assign Leads to Accounts in Salesforce

2023/01/25

Dear PT, 

Like many Salesforce® users, we have to manually assign Leads to their related Account. Of course, this opens up the potential for errors. It would be nice if we could automate this process and then notify the correct salesperson about the new Lead. Any thoughts on how we could easily do this?

Ask PT About Managing Date Shifting for Projects in Salesforce

2023/01/10

Dear PT, 

We use Salesforce® at our company, but we manage projects outside of Salesforce. This creates numerous challenges, and never more than when an established project plan has dates and deadlines that must be adjusted. Obviously, there is a ripple effect on the project, and most project planning software can handle that. However, when it comes to the associated projects and tasks that also reside in Salesforce, extra work is required, and it can be subject to error.  What can we do about this?

Ask PT How to See CY Revenue for Salesforce Opportunities or Accounts

2022/12/09

Dear PT, 

Our company displays products, quantity, and revenue on our Opportunity records. Unfortunately, the revenue figures are from the last 12 months to date, so the total may span two different years. We need to separate the revenue into two different categories, this year and last year. And we’d also like to display this information at the Account level. What do you suggest?

Ask PT About Viewing Open Cases on Salesforce Contact or Account Level

2022/11/11

Dear PT, 

Salesforce® functionality will let you view open Cases within your org. However, sometimes there are situations where it would be useful to view this information on a more granular level, for specific Contacts or Accounts. How could our company set up this at-a-glance list view, which also has filters for priority and status?

Ask PT About Tracking Billable/Non-Billable Hours in Salesforce

2022/10/28

Dear PT, 

With every customer project, there are billable and non-billable hours required to complete the objectives. Of course, customers are very interested in proper accounting—it’s their money on the line. But for our company, the non-billable hours are a necessary cost to us for deploying resources and getting the job done. It is an important metric for measuring efficiency and billing properly, overall and in various departments. Can you help us make sure we are not unnecessarily losing money on these customer engagements?
