Having a cap on the number of inputs for stage and status fields means that you are limited to defining only a certain number of stages or statuses in your sales funnel. This could potentially limit the granularity of your sales process tracking. However, it also encourages prioritization and focus on the most important stages or statuses. If you have more than the capped number of stages or statuses, you would need to consolidate or prioritize them.

Alternatives to using a kanban board visualization in sales could include Gantt charts, pipeline dashboards, or CRM systems that provide a visual representation of the sales process. These tools can also help to track the progress of leads and manage sales reps.

A sales rep can manage their funnel to win more deals by effectively tracking and managing the stages of their sales funnel. This includes understanding the status of each lead and prioritizing the most important stages or lead statuses. Additionally, they should be aware of their position within the sales team and continuously strive to improve their performance.

The different lead statuses in a sales funnel can vary depending on the specific sales team. However, they generally represent the stages a potential customer goes through in the sales process. These can include statuses such as 'new', 'contacted', 'qualified', 'proposal sent', 'negotiation', 'won', or 'lost'. It's important to note that the number of status fields is capped at 15, so the most important stages or lead statuses should be chosen.
