Sales Cycle stages are a business process that is often specific to an organization and are therefore not configured out of the box, but we want to make sure you have everything you need to easily create cards around your stages. If you've never created a card before, we recommend starting here. If you're familiar with the process, below are the content items we suggest using.
Remember, while this walks through a specific card, it can be adjusted to fit your needs. For example, changing the "Date Entered Stage" filter from last week to last month expands the lookback timeframe of the report, creating "Opps Moved to [Cycle Stage] Last Month" card instead. The opportunities to adjust a report to fit your needs are endless.
