Hindsight 2020

The Hindsight 2020 filter is available on Deal list views for accounts on our Grow plan. It allows you to compare today’s pipeline to previous dates right in the list view with just a couple of clicks! You will be able to quickly track sales progress and save time spent manually reporting comparative data.                                                             

To apply the Hindsight filter click on the Compare to Past button above the Add/Remove Columns button. Then select a past date you would like to compare by. (Note: You can only go as far back as February 7th, 2020 when the database driving this feature was created).

To remove the hindsight filter, click “Clear Comparison” directly below the Compared to button.

There are currently seven columns that can be reported on by Hindsight 2020. This comparative list view is interactive and dynamic. You can hover over cells with the orange triangle corner to see the data in that cell on your chosen date. Keep in mind you will only see the final state the record was in on your chosen date, not a full list of all changes made to that record since the date. The supported columns are:

  • Actual Close
  • Age
  • Amount
  • Latest activity updated
  • Expected Close
  • Stage 
  • Status

1. There are several new filter options above your list view accompanied by the percentage change of these attributes from today vs the date chosen.

2. The infinity symbol ∞ in the upper-left-hand side of the column header signifies that the column has the Hindsight comparative filter applied. Note that only the seven columns listed above are available on Hindsight at this time.

3. Deals that were created between the past date chosen, and today, will be highlighted in green with a + icon next to the row. For Deals where any data from the supported columns changed since the past date, an orange line will appear next to the first column in your Deals list view.  The green plus means that the record was created after the date selected. A Green dash means that the record was previously created, and is now newly available in the specific filtered list view.

4. The orange triangle in the corner of a cell shows that changes were made to the record between the past chosen date and today. If there is not a triangle in the corner that means the data has remained the same.

Deleted or removed deals 

Deals that no longer fit the criteria of the list view can be found at the bottom of your list. You can select “View Removed Deals” which will take you to an entirely new list view. 

You also have the ability to see a total number of deals deleted in your selected date comparison. Some of these deals may still be available to preview, restore, or permanently delete depending on the state of the record. You can view these deals by selecting “View Recycle Bin” at the bottom of the screen. From there you will be able to restore, permanently delete, or see a preview of the deal profile page with limited data.

  • Deals in the recycle bin will automatically be permanently deleted after 30 days. 
  • Visibility restrictions apply in the recycle bin as well. Users can only view deleted deals that they have permission to view.
  • Deleted records are listed by record type, date deleted, record owner, and the user who deleted the record.
  • A comparative view total number of deleted records may not match the number of records listed in the recycle bin as they may be outside of the 30 day Recycle Bin window, or they may have been permanently deleted.
