Create a deal

💡 Good to know
Only Sales Platform Pro users can have more than 50 open deals at a time. You will not be able to create new deals on a Free plan if you reach that limit.

You can quickly create and save your sales opportunities as deals by filling in the deal creation form. You can also associate them with existing or new contacts and companies directly from the form.

If you want to create or update several deals, you can easily import them from a file. To learn more, check our dedicated article Import deals.

Before you start

  • Make sure the default pipeline suits your team's needs. If necessary, you can add new stages or edit the existing ones.
  • Only the fields marked with an asterisk are mandatory. Deal name, Deal owner, and Deal stage are mandatory fields by default. You can create custom attributes and choose which attributes should be required when creating a company from the Manage deal creation attributes page.
