4.10.1 Define Site or/and Sales Goals

1. Set Up Goals

Navigate to the app launcher and search for Forecasts. (Make sure to open the ADvendio forecasts. If you happen to have a full Salesforce licence you might find a second object called "forecasts" which is a standard Salesforce feature). Create a new record by clicking on the New button: 

If both types are set up by your administrator please choose the correct record type and proceed: 

1.1 Sales Goals

1.1.1 Forecast - Sales Goals Visual Force Page

A new forecast or editing an existing forecast for each sales representative can be done by using the visual force page or the object Forecast itself. Advertiser, Agency, Site, Media and Publication Dates can be used. However, not all fields are required (like Advertiser or Agency), so that a more coarse planning is also possible. 

Remember, that in this page you can only see and edit your OWN forecast data. Talk to your administrator if you need to update data for other people. 


If no record is there click on the little green PLUS icon to add a new record:

Each sales representative or her manager has the possibility to enter their sales goal for a certain period. This may be based on advertiser and agency, or by site and media, and should be valid for a certain time period. The following data can be entered but not all fields are required (like Advertiser or Agency), so that a more coarse planning is also possible. Also, a standard Salesforce approval process can be used to approve sales goals by a manager.

Enter the sales goals for each sales rep by the appropriate period:

  1. Navigate to an existing Advertiser-Agency-Relation. Otherwise, you have to create one first.
  2. Click the button Revenue Forecast

You can also enter the sales goals for each sales rep at the Object Forecasts. Navigate to App Launcher > Forecasts and click on the button New Forecast. If needed, an approval process can be set up to approve sales goals by a delegated manager.
