Part 1 will give you a quick overview of the app, so you know exactly what we plan on developing.

Inside this simple CRM application, we chose to develop an app that has two user levels: We can log in as an employee or a sales rep, or as a manager.

Keep in mind that the Caspio platform allows you to build more sophisticated user-level management workflows. But for the sake of this training, we opted to keep things simple. Here’s an overview of what you’ll see in the employee dashboard:

  • The employee’s sales funnel
  • Their entire pipeline broken down in four stages
  • A report that groups all their potential leads in each stage
  • The ability to input new leads, set the stage and input lead size via a form
  • The ability to search leads based on some criteria
  • A report that has a stacked bar chart broken down based on stage

Now, let’s look at what the manager can see once they sign into their dashboard:

  • A report that lists all the employees supervised by the manager
  • The ability to expand and collapse the stages of any employee
  • The ability to select leads and quickly reassign them to other employees
