Features

Align Settings

Modeling Settings in Align

Settings in Align control most of the functionality available to field forces. Modeling these settings allow admins to control functionality in modeling records, for example, model projects or model field forces. These modeling settings interact with the existing import, clone, and publish processes as part of Territory Modeling and enable greater flexibility and automation of these processes.

Territory Feedback

Manager Feedback

Managers reviewing changes to users’ territories using Enhanced Territory Feedback can review, reject, and approve challenges made by roster members via a dedicated tab, enabling managers to quickly review changes made by roster members and take the appropriate action to complete the Territory Feedback process.
