In order for your Opportunities to move correctly through IF3, Actions must be assigned and completed which will then create the next Action. This ensures that all of your Opportunities will go through the same process by the correct team members. When you receive a new lead from your lead sources it will come into IF3 as an Opportunity and assign the action Call New Lead. After the Call New Lead action is completed it will set the next action based on how you set the status. The tables below give you an overview of how these flow and what will happen next each time you complete an action.
