      Hello All!

      Thanks for the feedback here, we really appreciate it! I just wanted to get you guys a quick update here. Unfortunately, this isn’t a feature we’ll be releasing at the moment. If you’d like to print these reports, you can also use the print function in the browser that you’re using.

      Also, we’ve released the Smart Lists feature that allows you to print after putting together a dashboard of items you’d like to see. Reach out to us at support@getbase.com if you’d like to learn more!

      Best,
      Jo-Anne

      Provide for the user to design their own report. I would like to be able to produce a phone directory or an address book to help guide me on calls.

      • When in reporting mode it would be so useful to drill down into the detail

        It is really frustrating not to be able to find how the total figures are arrived at i.e. in the pipeline by clicking on one of the stages it would then list the pieces of business that make up the totals. Unless I am missing something this doesn't appear to be possible and the only way to find this sort of detail is by exporting the whole account each time

        • Ability to change dates in reports based on financial year

          It would be nice to have the ability to change the dates in reports based on financial year of the company we work in.

          • Allow "Lead Sources" Category to Convert to CONTACTS

            This could be considered a suggestion for either the Reporting side or the Leads side.

            --

            Always found it a bit odd that "Lead Sources" do not convert with Contacts. Still seems like useful information when looking to better understand how a person moved from Lead > Customer or Prospect.

            That said, I don't think this is necessary for the DEAL "Source" fields as I personally view those as two distinctly separate types of opportunity drivers. If the Lead Source did flow through into Deals as well, I would keep those distinctly separate.

            * Lead Source
            * Deal Source

            Both…

            • Have it count how many phone calls and emails have been made...

              It would be really great if, as Base already logs calls/emails, it then actually counted phone calls/emails made/received.

              And then if it could recognise the calls made at different stages of deals. Here's why.

              It would be great to go into reports, and see how many phone calls/emails are necessary on average to take a deal to the next stage, or even how many calls/emails are necessary to win a deal.

              This would then give you valuable data such as how much each phone call/email is worth to you, monetarily - overall, and broken-down, stage-by-stage.

                Hi,
                You can already view the number of calls made using the Call Count report (http://glurl.co/d6W). We continue to work on expanding the reports center, so just give us time, and those updates will be there.
                You can visit our blog (blog.getbase.com) to keep up to date with all new features.

                Thanks for your suggestions!

                All the best,

              • referral tree

                My business i heavily rooted in referrals. I need to be able to track who my biggest impacts have come from. It would be great if I could see a kind of mind map that went back to each individual. IE if Fred referred Eli and Eli referred John and Nancy, then I would like to be able to pull a kind of referral tree out that showed Fred linked to Eli linked to John and Nancy so that I could track that Fred actually yielded 3 referrals not just Eli...Especially important to keep track of compensation splits!!!

                • View deal values within the funnel analysis report

                  Hi,

                  It would be great to see the value of stages within the Sales Funnel Analysis. We track volume, value and conversion. You've nailed volume and conversion, it would be great to see value there also to highlight the upside of addressing conversion issues

                  • Spread a 'sales forecast' over a period of time

                    For example;

                    1. We sell a media opportunity to an advertising agency for one of their clients XYZ.
                    2. The media value is $100k and will deliver over 4 months (September-December)
                    3. We need to show the $100k value split evenly over those 4 months, to build a sales forecast.
                    4. This would mean when I create the 'Deal' i need to select a start and end date for the Deal.

                    • Pre Scheduled Exports

                      Provide the capability to schedule exports daily/weekly/biweekly, etc. to a predefined list of email recipients. As a sales director this would be extremely helpful as I'm traveling to not have to worry about how I'll get data extracted and delivered to the other executive team members. Usually these reports are due weekly.

                        Hi,
                        Thanks for your feedback. Can you let me know what sort of reports you’d like to see? We’d be happy to further develop our existing reports; and I understand you’d also like to see additional sharing options?

                        Thanks, and best wishes,
                        Raf

                        • Product Forecasting Reports

                          A report based on forecasted products or the ability to customize the current product by closed sales to other stages is needed in Base. The current reports only reflect the forecasted sales numbers, but many companies have multiple products that need projection to maintain best inventory, etc.

                          • Report on Tasks Completed

                            G'day. Loving this so far. When I assign tasks to my Sales Reps I'd like to be able to produce a report on who completed their tasks successfully and how many tasks (i.e. a %) were completed over a period.

                            other than that, GREAT!

                            • Linkable Reports

                              You have a bunch of useful reports however, you don't expose filters & tags (options generally speaking) in the URL. As a result if i want to send a link of that report to a colleague I can't.

                              I also can't attach it on presentations, documents or different platforms that we internally use and that is really important.
                              Exporting things in a CSV / Excel (which you do offer in some) doesn't really help because we have to re-create your functionality + charts which we're not interested if we just want to show this report in another place.

                              If you…

                                Our company financial / sales year runs from June to June. On the drop downs within the reports it gives you the option to change the view from week, month, year etc. Would it be possible to add financial / sales year which could be programmed in the settings menu?

                                • Add "Last Note Entered" to the custom reports menu. This would help populate an update report to reflect the latest input on each deal

                                  When creating a custom report (ie weekly sales update), If "last note entered" were an option on the report menu, then the report would have relevant and recent input included in the report.

                                      • Time tracking for each deal

                                        It could be good to know how much time I spent on each deal within stages (some sort of stopwatch etc).

                                        • Have also a link to the deal in the call log report

                                          Currently we have a link to the contact. But calls are related also to deals. We currently cannot access the deal from the call log report. Please add this column to the call log report.
