What’s the difference between an opportunity's Origin and Source?

We know from our customers that many users organize their sources into higher-level categories. We call these broader categories origins. Origins allow you to group your sources together and build reports on these sources in bulk.


Example: for the origin of “Sourced”, you’ll see all of the candidates who you brought into your pipeline from places like GitHub, AngelList, Dribbble, etc. Then, instead of adding each of these individual sources to the reports filter, you can simply filter by origin = Sourced.

Each opportunity has one (and only one!) point of origin: Applied, Sourced, Referred, University, Internal, or Agency.


You can change opportunity origins individually or in bulk.
