    Currently, we have workaround with use of LiquidJS functions you can update a field value via workflow based on calculations you need.

    You beat me to it. Def. needed, especially for companies who do quotes and need to calculate tax or gratuities automatically. +10000 Vote! :)

    I too would like formula fields in Salesmate. My use case would be to add a custom field for Monthly Recurring Revenue and then add a Formula field that multiplies the value in my MRR field by 12 to give me my Annual Recurring Revenue for that customer.

    @Team Salesmate - That isn't a realistic workaround. There shouldn't be any coding on behalf of the user in order to have formula fields.

    @Team Salesmate - are you able to build the fields for us?  This could maybe be a realistic workaround whilst you get a full solution sorted...

    This may be a workaround for some but not for the majority of customers who are not developers. I agree with Reid on this, Salesmate needs to build this functionality. This is pretty standard functionality in CRM solutions (I have had a lot of experience with various CRM providers).

    We have started exploring details of Calculated Fields. Right now, we are figuring out the best way to allow users to create such fields. If you have any suggestions, then kindly share them with us.

    Meanwhile, if anyone helps achieve calculated fields using our Workflow or Automation Journey feature, feel free to reach out to the support over the chat.

    I work in insurance and I represent over 20 carriers in each product line - life insurance, medicare, aca, etc. So, I have over 100 products to add to the system. 

    My comp rate is a % of the annual premium and each product will pay me a different %.

    I want to add all of my products with the carrier information and the comp % per my contract.  Then, when I complete a deal, I want to be able to enter the policy premium and have a calculated field show me the income based on that product's comp %.

    *Ideally, I'd like to be able to enter the monthly premium and have the deal annualize it in another field (x12) and then do the calculation above.*

    In my sales reports, I want to track the following:

    • Annual premium sold for the year / product line
    • Total comp / product line
    • Total comp for the year
