For more on this feature, see Use the Follow Up screen.
Filter Follow Up Opportunities by Estimates: So that you can more easily prioritize them, you can sort your view of Follow Ups opportunities by the number of sold estimates, the number of open estimates, and the total number of estimates sold.

For more on this feature, see Use the Follow Up screen.
Permission for exporting all follow up tabs: All ServiceTitan accounts now have a permission that controls whether or not a user can export from any of the tabs under Follow Ups. Previously, this feature required account configuration. If you don’t already have this feature turned on, the permission is checked on by default for all your users so that nothing will change unless an administrator changes permissions manually. If you already had this feature turned on, your existing permission setup will not change and nothing will be checked or unchecked. For more on this feature, see
