Setting Up Industries
You can set up and maintain industry information used throughout the application. The information in the Industries view populates the Industries drop-down list, which is found in a variety of screens and views, such as in the Accounts and References screens. The Industry list can also be used by Siebel Assignment Manager to assign new leads or service requests to Siebel users. For example, a sales representative who covers the pharmaceutical industry can be assigned automatically to new accounts based on a Pharmaceutical Industry value.
To add an industry
- Navigate to Administration - Data screen > Industries view.
- In the Industries list, create a new record.
- Complete the Industry, SIC Code, and Type fields.
NOTE: The Industry and SIC Code values must be unique. If you add a value that already exists, you receive an error message.
