The emails sent card reflects all emails sent to a corporate email address or to a contact in Salesforce. For an individual, we display the total number of emails sent and for a team we display either the average or total, depending on the team metric you select to view.
Why It’s Important
The first step in the sales process is activity. From prospecting to down-funnel opportunities, emails are vital for monitoring workflow with new opportunities and potential new customers. This metric is also used to track touch points within existing customer relationships.
How Do I Use It?
This card works well on 1:1 dashboards, Kudos Feed Alerts, and Low Activity Alerts where leading indicators are a top priority.
This card pairs well with Calls, Email Engagement, Accounts Touched, Contacts Touched, and Contacts Touched per Account. For AE Teams, it also pairs well with Prospecting cards. For SDR teams, it also pairs with Activity per Opp Created.
Set goals on this card to monitor team activity, efficiency, and performance.
