Building Apollo

Apollo behind the scenes: see what we are working on right now!

A better way to follow your deals

Monday November 30, 2015

We're back with another Apollo update, development is moving fast and we have a lot in the pipeline. Here's what you can use today:

Subscribe to deal updates

Last week we added the ability to subscribe to a contact as a whole, in order to stay updated when a new note or comment is added to that contact. This week, we're doing the same for deals, with a twist: you have the ability to choose between two levels of notification.

  • Select Subscribe to deal changes only to receive notifications when the deal record is updated (status, price, etc.).
  • Select Subscribe to deal changes plus notes/comments to also receive a notification when somebody adds a new note or comment.

Again, if you are an admin user, you can also manage other users' subscription by clicking the Manage link.

What's next?

As you may already know, most of the new features comes directly from requests from users (like you!). One recurring request is to improve deal management in general, so expect more updates about deals in the next few weeks.

That's it for today! As always, a big thanks goes to the users who keep sending their feedback. You will find a list of other minor changes at the end of this post.

Thanks for reading!
