How Deal Manager works

Configure your desired user experience in Deal Manager to best work with agreements, quotes, and contracts. To support this, Zilliant Deal Manager comprises various objects and fields with associated page layouts, Lightning record pages, Lightning components, action buttons, and search layouts.

You can combine Deal Manager capabilities—and also write custom Apex business logic—in various ways to build your desired user experience. You can:

  • Design your own pricing guidance and price insights. For example, you can define start, target, and floor guidance values for each line item in a quote or contract.
  • Add and edit line items in quotes, contracts, and deals.
  • Configure search syntax, pre-entry fields that filter search results, automated line insertion, and formulaic mass editing of lines.
  • Enable filtering and security features, such as:
    • Dynamic filters that prevent users from seeing various product records when adding new lines.
    • Complex rules that determine whether specific users can add or edit specific line items.
    • Workspaces that act as temporary holding areas for line items, locking out all other users from editing the same lines, and enabling line items to be reverted to their original state.
