We are in the process of making some design tweaks to Tracks that should be with you within a week. As well as a mini-face lift, we’ve changed how won, lost, pending and stale deals are displayed on the pipeline view.
You can see in the image below that on the right – the new design – we have opted for a traffic light philosophy where the green dot represents a won deal, the red represents a lost deal and the amber represents a deal that is going stale.
The other status is active (grey), which in Tracks at the moment means it has been updated within seven days. (Soon you’ll be able to set your own timeframe on this)

The main problem this change overcomes is highlighting the status of deals whilst keeping the styling clean and simple. Even though it’s just a small change, we are really excited by it, particularly because we plan to add in the ability to set your own timeframes for stale deals including an “ignore” function.
Here is another interface tip as part of our learning series. This one shows you how to quickly and easily add multiple contacts to your sales pipeline in Tracks. Hope you have some contacts as talented as the ones in the demo!
Here is a short video on the order of contacts as they appear in Tracks when you sync them with Highrise. How you add contacts to Highrise matters when you want to export certain contacts in a specific order. You can learn how to do this below.
I think it was either at MicroConf Europe in October or on a Startups For The Rest Of Us podcast that Mike Taber (the co-founder of both) said that one thing he noticed when he was trialling Google Glass was the he had way more conversations. People were curious, so they asked questions.
As I’m not a natural networker, I love this.
However, I had forgotten about this snippet of genius until recently where I’ve found myself working in an office full of new people to me. No – I wasn’t wearing Google Glass, but what I noticed were two things that made having conversations easier. Read More…
My first B2B sales job was to launch a UK company into three other European countries. As part of the business development process, I had to develop product concepts based on a UK product that were specific to each of these countries: France, Spain and Sweden. In essence, what I was selling in the first instance was a meeting to discuss these concepts.
The companies I was selling to were banks, which are notoriously difficult organisations to get a meeting with.
Here’s how I did it using brown cardboard tubes. Read More…
I got asked the other day by a new trial user for Tracks about forecasting capabilities. It’s something I have looked at a lot over the years building Tracks. It’s also something I’ve tried (and failed) to improve on.
Looking back, I’m not convinced it’s something we need to improve. Here’s why: Read More…
Are you a front end developer? If you are then we’d love to talk with you.
We are looking for freelance mid-level FRONT END DEVELOPER to take our complete redesign and rebrand and produce high quality HTML5 and CSS3, firstly for Tracks the app and then secondly for our new website.
This is a great project for someone looking to bring awesome designs (done by our very own Lewis) come to life and to work with a couple of really friendly start up founders (that’s me and Lewis)!
Must have experiences include:
Multiple years working on the HTML5 and CSS3 of web apps
Planning HTML / CSS projects from scratch

This is a remote position, so your written communication skills should be pretty good.
We have on going front end work too after the redesign and rebrand projects are complete and tons of opportunity.
