    Use the sign up button and create an account. 
    Done.  Easy enough to do any follow.
    Register and complete the process.
    Done. I found the e-mail in my junk mail folder.  It’d be easier if I didn’t have to confirm via e-mail – I like to sign up and be done all on the website.
    Crate a new opportunity (or more) using the tool.
    Done.  Had a bit of trouble with “amount” – wouldn’t accept commas or dollar signs, which is slightly annoying given that most people use those symbols when writing money amounts.
    View and edit the opportunities.
    Done – straight forward.
    Create a new user from the dashboard (using your same mail address) and follow the instructions.
    Done.  I wasn’t able to use the same e-mail address, however, as it said it was already taken. I imagine this could be problematic within companies wanting to set up multiple users on a join e-mail account, or e-mail managed by one person.
    Create a new opportunity (or more) with that user.
    Was not able to do so, as mentioned above.

    Switch between users to get an idea how a sales manager and his sales team relate to one another and get a view of the aggregated data in the system.
    Same as above, I was unable to do this.

    I have worked in systems similar to this, although far more complex (Salesforce).  I like many things about your system, primarily the simplicity of it all.  It’s easy to follow and use – simple navigation – it’s great for small business owners, entrepreneurs, and start ups.  I might say that as businesses begin to expand, they’ll find this limiting in some ways – but, you can’t be all things to all people, and you’ve developed a unique product for that small biz. market.  You want to make sure you own that space well.

    I particularly liked the import to excel setting – this is very handy!  I also find the filters function vastly important – as once you enter in many opportunities, searching and creating groups is crucial, and timely without this function.  I might suggest adding more filter options, however, such as “opportunities with a probability of 60% or more”, or “opportunities over $50,000” – this way people can prioritize based on likelihood of winning, and overall value.  Customization is really important, so try and customize the features available to users. 

    Also, I would have liked to have been able to access the Metaconomy homepage from my pipeline, but it seemed as though I wasn’t able to do this.  You should create a logo link somewhere visible.  This can lead to greater sales. 

    Your home page is a little funky in terms of scrolling.  I had a double scroll, and once I scrolled down to the mobile apps and social media info, my screen would not let me scroll back to the top.  It could just be my screen – but, you should be aware as I’m sure this will happen to others.  Also, you should systematize your design standards on your homepage.  Fonts should be the same – currently they vary.  You want to make sure you’re visually sharp, as this is the first impression a customer will have.

    Great work – you’re helping create business solutions for the little guys that need it most!  Best of luck in your venture.
