Smart process is a customizable type of element in CRM. Before you had to adapt deals, leads or quotes to the company internal processes. Now you can create your own work scenarios.
In the smart processes, you can set up:
- Pipelines and sales funnels
- Stages and kanban
- Automation rules and triggers
- Default access permissions for pipelines
Create a smart process
To create a smart process, go to CRM > Settings > Smart Processes Automation.
You can select a preconfigured smart process template. The Essentials only and All options selected templates have scripts configured to work with the document list and CRM elements.
In the Empty SPA template, you can make settings to create your own work scenario. Let's take this template as an example of the available options and settings.
Enter the name of the smart process in the SPA components section.
Then select the desired tools to work with the smart process.
Pipelines and sales funnels
You will be able to create multiple pipelines for this smart process, similar to ones in deals.

Configure binding to CRM entities for your process. You can link a smart process to other CRM entities or to other smart processes.
With this option, you can select the CRM entities that you want to bind to your smart process.
For example, you can bind Deals to your process. In this case, a field will appear inside the smart process card with a selection from the list of items.
If you use the Add linked items list to details form option, your smart process will appear in the deal card.
With this option, you can bind your smart process to available CRM entities.
For example, you can link your smart process to Quotes. In this case, when you work with Quotes, your smart process will appear in the selection list.
If you use the Add linked items list to details form option, your smart process will appear in the quote card.
You can also link your smart process to other CRM entities, calendars, tasks, and task templates. As a result, you can add entities of your smart process to CRM deals, calendar events, tasks, or task templates.
In the Add to menu section, you can create a separate section in the left menu.
To create a section, click Edit items and specify a name for your section.
Don't forget to save the settings.
