We need to talk about... D365 Sales... Sales Accelerator Reporting

Next in my blog series, I am talking about the Sales Accelerator and a new feature which provides both reporting and analytics driven by some of the features contained within the Sales Accelerator itself.


Setup

The Sales Accelerator in Dynamics 365 Sales provides a new intuitive way of accelerating through the sales process by making use of Lead Assignment rules, Sales Sequencing of activities and identification of key business deals through Lead and Opportunity scoring. Using this feature, the sales team can prioritize customer lists and create worklists that help in making every communication successful.


During the build of a recent customer demo, I noticed a new feature titled Sales Accelerator Reporting. Upon investigation and as the name suggests, these features provide real-time analytics based on data and predictive information that can help the sales manager accelerate the sales performance of the team. It leverages reporting capability to filter the data based on specific time periods (Weekly, Monthly Yearly), entity type, sequence name, sequence owner, seller, and territory.


Now, let’s start with the actual demonstration of each feature and to do this we first need to enable the generic Sales Accelerator configuration.


You can follow the simple steps given below to configure this feature. Navigate to Sales Insights settings, Sales accelerator, Sales acceleration reporting (preview)” option available. Select the radio button below to enable the feature.



While enabling, you will see with below pop-up, click on the “Enable” button to proceed:



During my testing, it did take around 30 minutes for the configuration to complete and for it to allow me back into the Sales Hub application but after this period “Sales Analytics” started appearing under the Sales area of the Sales Hub.


Now that this phase of the configuration is complete you can navigate to Sales, Sales Analytics, and Sales Acceleration Reports where you will see the Sequence Reporting area.

I hope you all enjoyed this post on the D365 Sales Accelerator Reporting. Take Care, and Speak Soon!
