Comparators | Online Help - Zoho CRM


A Comparator lets you compare your organization's data among users, roles and over different time periods. You can easily track information like sales teams performance over the years, number of deals lost or won in the consecutive months or individual sales reps performance through different sales stages. For example, if Zylker Inc. wants to view the sales metrics for each city, all it needs to do is select a Classic comparator and enter the relevant comparison parameters and get a comparative overview of Leads created, number of accounts, number of open deals and annual revenue generated by each city under one visualization. 

Create a Comparator

Based on your business requirement you can choose the following comparators:

  • Elegant
  • Sport
  • Classic
You can compare data among users, time period or modules. 
  1. Users: You can select any CRM user or users from different roles. 
  2. Time period: You can compare data against days, calendar weeks, fiscal weeks, month, fiscal quarter, year, or set custom date.
  3. Picklist values: You can choose picklist values from any module.
