Change Deal Room Name for POC stage

Automatically update the dealroom name with a prefix of choice when an opportunity moves to a different stage

A user can use this recipe to set up a workflow to automatically update the deal room name with a prefix of one's choice as soon as an opportunity moves to a different stage.

To setup this workflow:

  1. Go to Momentum web app. You can navigate to Momentum directly from your Slack workspace.

a) Find Momentum app from the list of apps in your Slack workspace and click on "Momentum App" displayed at the top.

b) This will directly take you to Momentum app where you can now setup your workflow

  1. You will find a list of available recipes here. Select the recipe titled "Change Deal Room Name for POC stage"
  2. Enter the details shown in the recipe.  

A quick look at what the fields imply:

Here is an example use case for how this recipe can be used to automatically update a deal room name with an added prefix.

Assume in our case we want to add a prefix to our deal room as:

  1. ES  - for all the deals in the early stages like Prospecting, Qualification, Needs Analysis
  2. LS - for all the deals in the later stages like Proposal & Negotiation

Note that this is a recipe and multiple workflows can be created out of a single recipe. So the name and description here imply the name & description of the workflow you wish to create. Giving a workflow the right name and description will allow you to manage your workflows efficiently.

In this case, you can create two workflows with the required details. Let us create one with ES cases for our example, and the same can be applied to the LS stages as well.

Select the stages you wish to add to the workflow and add the prefix of your choice. In this case it'll be ES.

In our case, we have mentioned here that any opportunity which moves to either Prospecting, Qulification, Needs Analysis, Value Proposition & Id. Decision Makers stages should have the deal room named with the prefix ES.

Once, all your options are set, click on create recipe.

Once a workflow is created, you will see a success message

Good job! you have created your first workflow using the recipe.  

You can view your recipe created when you click on the "Created Recipes" option on the left.

Note that any recipe created will be in 'Active' state by default. If you ever want to stop triggering this workflow, you can just reach this page and turn the active switch off.
