Overview of Opportunities


In WorkSpan, you can create, collaborate, and track opportunities for your joint sales plans and solutions.

Navigating to Opportunities

Navigation: Navigation Menu > Joint Sales > Opportunities.


Opportunities Landing page opens.

On the Opportunities Landing page, you can view all of your existing opportunities in the following categories:


You can now run joint pipeline reviews on a shared screen and be confident that your private fields are not shared with your partners with the "Show Private Fields" button. Any private data including fields and metrics will be hidden from all the pages including overview pages and table views. This user setting is persistent across the application and across sessions.

NOTE: The button will hide private fields but does not hide rows. In order to ensure that you are only sharing rows that the partner has access to, you should filter the Member Company column to the Partner company before starting the screen share.


You can nominate multi-way partner opportunities in WorkSpan. In the multi-company views, each company on an opportunity has a separate section where company employees (with requisite access to an opportunity) can populate their company's specific data such as their products, services and expected revenue.

You can also specify validations for these company-specific fields and also have company custom fields. Opportunities are dynamically updated to include these company fields when a user from the company is added to the opportunity. 

Opportunities in Sales Plans, Solutions and Partner Programs

Intuitive workflows in WorkSpan's Sales or Solutions Apps enable seamless communication and coordination between partners to move an opportunity forward. Each partner can add pertinent information to an opportunity, exchange messages, assign tasks, add expenses, add files, links or other content to an opportunity. 

You can pursue a single opportunity with multiple alliances, under different sales plans, and solutions. WorkSpan's robust access controls allow you to restrict visibility to specific partners.

The Opportunity Path section is dynamically enabled in the Opportunity Summary page from your sales plan or solution, if your opportunity template includes this section.
When an assessment is converted to an opportunity, the following fields are automatically defaulted if it is setup in your template:
    • Account Name
    • Solutions
    • Link to Assessment

From within a sales plan, solution or partner program for each opportunity, you can:

  • Open an existing opportunity.
  • Add a new opportunity
  • Exclude the opportunity from the open sales plan/solution/partner program.
  • Add one or more tasks to the opportunity.
  • Share the opportunity with others in your network.
  • Add Comments to the opportunity.
  • Bookmark the opportunity.
