NetSuite: At-Risk Opportunity Follow Up

At-Risk Opportunity Follow Up

Purpose:Provide guidance how to manage and use tools provided in NetSuite for at-risk opportunities follow up.

At-Risk Category on Activity Records:
- By using tasks, phone calls and events marked with the specific at-risk category field, any updates to at-risk opportunities can be tracked within NetSuite
- The At-Risk category field will only be displayed on the ISS Account Executive custom forms
- The selection options are: Next Steps / Status Update / Notes

Based on the at-risk category selected the activity will be sourced onto a saved search used by the sales team to review all at-risk opportunities. If an at-risk category is not selected the activity will not show on the saved search used for follow up.

BMS | At-Risk Active Opps With Activities Detail:
- This saved search sources all the opportunities marked at risk, along with the activities associated with them. This search will be the main source of data for opportunity follow up.
- By clicking on the opportunity number, the search will drill down into the at-risk activities associated with that opportunity. The activity type, title, status, sales rep and any notes will be listed.

- Each line of text will be highlighted as a different color. Each of these colors stand for a specific status.
