Automation and integration
Ensuring products across your tech stack work seamlessly together and automating as much of any given process as you can is a key part of digital transformation and improving the way that an organization conducts business.
- Conditionally format cells and rows that need action based on pre-set conditions, such as time-based or user-based actions to automatically be flagged in different ways.
- Reviewing large sets of data to identify actions needed is far more efficient when you have the ability to add visual aids to your Grids. Highlight contacts that haven’t been contacted in the last 30 days, opportunities that haven’t moved stages within a set amount of time, and much more.
- Use Conga Grid in tandem with other Conga products, such as Conga Composer or Conga Sign, to insert accurate data into generated documents for sending and signature.
