Whenever a new tool is brought into an organization, especially for sales, it can be challenging to understand how to measure the impact it has on your team’s pipeline. There are typically three main requests from managers and leaders looking for insights on which reports to set up in Salesforce for Alyce:

The following reports were developed by our Solutions team after working closely with our customers who leverage the Alyce for Salesforce integration.

3. Meetings Influenced by Alyce

This report will show you a count of meetings that have been influenced by Alyce. We can get this number one of two ways:

  1. The main way is to have your Sales team members’ calendar integrated with Alyce, as it allows prospects to book meetings right from the gift landing page experience and automatically translates into Salesforce.
  2. If you aren’t able to integrate your calendar, you can have reps use the “Meeting was held” checkbox on the Gift record to mark when a meeting has occurred.meetings influenced by alyce
