One of our most requested features is the ability to gather additional data from sales people when they are using Sparta to log their activities, such as order numbers, customer id's or even a contract. We heard the call and are happy to announce that we just launched our custom fields functionality!
This means that you can define a number of fields when creating your activities/metrics within Sparta. When users log their activities, these will be shown and if they are required, they can't continue unless they fill them out.
How it looks
In this example, we want to enforce good posture and also make sure that we get all the customer numbers so we can double check the data when the competition is over.
We will track two metrics:
- Customer no# (String) - required field
- Are you standing up? (Checkbox) - required field
You can also choose to have field as non-required.
When logging activities, this is what it will look like:
You can of course edit competitions and these fields during the competition, just click "edit competition" (as an administrator) and you will see this screen:
Of coures, all this data is available when you export the competition too!
We are looking to extend the custom fields to offer the option to upload images as well. Do you have any other ideas? Please reach out to me and I'll be happy to help!
