Absence ChartGet all users absences recorded inside common absence chart.
Get Multiple Sales Pipelines
Differentiate sales by using different pipelines for various business directions. In Bitrix24 there is no need to set up sales pipeline management templates, all you have to do is define lead and deal stages that are relevant to your sales process. The rest is done automatically.
Why is this important? Suppose, you run a car dealership and have multiple profit centers – you sell cars, parts, insurance, accept trade-ins and do repairs – to name a few. The problem is that the sales process for new or used cars is totally different than one for selling parts or insurance. Setting up a test drive is an important stage for selling or leasing a car, but it’s simply not applicable to insurance sales or oil changes, which don’t involve multiple sale stages. That’s where multiple pipelines and sales funnels are so handy.
Bitrix24 Standard plan subscribers get 2 sales pipelines. Consider Bitrix24 Professional plan - in case you need more (our top plan offers unlimited pipelines).
Bitrix24 Standard plan subscribers can customize deal form fields, deal stages, go to Sales Funnel and select which pipeline to build the funnel for - this will help to analyze sales process and estimate future sales.

Launch New Projects With External Users
Extranet is another great tool that comes with Bitrix24 but available for Standard or Professional plan users only. Extranet allows you to give limited and frequently temporary access to your corporate intranet to people who aren’t your employees but who have to interact and collaborate with them on certain projects – partners, contactors, event planners, designers, freelancers, branding agencies, business consulting agents, etc. Extranet users have access only to workgroups where they are members; the rest of the corporate network is invisible and inaccessible to them (see Intranet vs Extranet user comparison chart).
Invite external users to your projects, communicate, share files, set tasks, perform voice or video calls. Extranet users are unlimited.
Add Custom Fields To Tasks
In Bitrix24 custom fields for tasks are available starting with Bitrix24 Standard plan. Simply click ‘Create new task’, scroll to the bottom and create a custom field. The following types of custom fields are currently available for tasks - text (e.g. client preferences), number (e.g. budget), date\time (e.g. event date) and true\false. Each custom field can be marked as required or multiple, if necessary. If you are an administrator, you can share the newly created task field with all employees and enable field dragging.

Set Custom Telephony Access Permissions
When you have numerous sales agents working with telephony, access permissions configuration may come quite handy. You can restrict access to telephony to those users who do not work with calls, and configure other users’ access to call statistics, call recordings, user and telephony settings, or phone number management section.
You can configure outbound calls separately for each user– as in call anybody, only CRM clients, CRM clients & company employees or prohibit outbound calls to specific employees entirely.
For example, you can make one of your sales agents to access only own call statistics, limit access to telephony settings and allow to make outbound calls to CRM clients only.
Lock Files For Editing
When several users are working with same document, it may be important to have an option to “Lock document for editing by another user”. This action may help you to protect the file from changes being made by other users who also have access for this file.
Improve Security & Protect Data
Disable Public Links: by default, Bitrix24 Free & Plus plan subscribers have option “Allow public links” enabled, which means any user of their account can generate a link for the file & share it outside. But sometimes, when you deal with sensitive information you may be wise to restrict file sharing. Starting from Bitrix24 Standard plan you can disable public links to prevent others from being able to share files publicly with users outside your Bitrix24 account.
Set Access Limit By IP: you can choose to allow individual users and departments to access the service only from chosen IP addresses. For example, everyone would be able to access Bitrix24 from your local network, but only certain employees could access from mobile devices or from home, and only some of them would be allowed access from any location.
Backup Restore: as you probably know, all Bitrix24 cloud accounts are backed up daily (both free and paid plans). This means that your Bitrix24 accounts data is protected from any tech issues or any unpredictable circumstances that may happened at our end. But if the problem is at your side, e.g. somebody of your employees has deleted any data (tasks, CRM records, etc.), backup restore is available for Bitrix24 Standard & Professional plan subscribers only.
Brand Your Bitrix24 Account
Starting from Bitrix24 Standard plan you can add your own company logo to your Bitrix24 account.
You can get all above listed options for only $99 per month.
