A deal's page stores all important information about the deal: the customer company name and contact person, the deal amount, current tasks, statuses, etc. You can change this layout as you wish by, for example, adding or deleting fields and making them required.
All the deal's history is shown on its activity stream on the left-hand side of the deal's page Here the sales rep working with the deal can leave a comment, attach a file or discuss an issue with coworkers.
To the right of the activity stream you can see all the current and completed activities. You can schedule new activities by choosing them from the drop-down list. Select the type of activity that you need, and assign an executor and a due date.
