Move Deal to the Next Stage When Task is Completed Automation Recipe

Automate the movement of deals through your sales pipeline with this automation. As soon as a task is marked complete in your CRM, this automation moves a deal to the next stage of your pipeline and assigns a new task to the deal owner.

If you have multiple sales pipelines and deal stages, manually moving a deal from one sales pipeline stage to the next can be time-consuming and tedious. Automating the tedious parts of the sales process -- like assigning tasks and moving deals between stages -- gives your sales team more time back to do what they do best: close deals.

What are deal stages?

Different sales pipelines include different stages, but common sales pipeline stages include:

- Contact stage
- Qualification stage
- Meeting stage
- Proposal stage
- Closing stage
- Retention stage

This automation can be used with any automation that involves assigning a task. In a task assignment automation, you can choose to trigger this automation as soon as the assigned task is marked complete.

Each deal can only be moved to one stage per automation. To make sure each deal can move to the next stage, use this recipe to build out an automation for each stage of your pipeline.

Here's how this automation works to move a deal to the next stage in the pipeline:

1. This automation does not have a built-in trigger. Instead, you can use any task assignment automation action to trigger this automation when a task is marked as complete. Use this automation in a series to automate your pipeline.
2. Select the stage and pipeline that this automation should move a deal into
3. Choose the next task the deal owner needs to perform for the deal's journey through the pipeline
