Opportunities can be used to keep track of items the customer wants but is not currently in stock. The Opportunity status ‘Searching’ has unique functionality to help you find the machine you’re looking for. It also increases exposure to all Handle users, creating the ability to see what equipment other salesman might be looking for.
Searching Opportunities find matching equipment in the following areas:
- Dealer Inventory
- Customer Equipment marked for ‘Trade-In’
- Active JDQuote2™ ‘Trade-Ins’
‘Matching’ uses the following fields in your Handle Opportunity to find equipment:
- Category (not required)

- Amount (not required)
