Partner-to-partner collaboration is the bedrock of a scalable ecosystem. Real-time collaboration is now possible right in Crossbeam with Shared Lists. PAMs can handpick both overlapping and non-overlapping accounts from any report and share with a partner to quickly prioritize, action, and attribute your ripest opportunities.
With Shared Lists, you can:
Work collaboratively and securely with your partner on both overlapping and non-overlapping accounts in an easy-to-scan format
Unlock the insights that matter most with customizable column configuration
Have an organized record of your PAM-to-PAM communications that is easy to find and search through
To access this feature, you must have Data Sharing enabled. Learn more about Data Sharing with your partners here.
Create a Shared List
Shared List works for all Data Sources in Crossbeam. Shared Lists generated from CSV files will be limited to static functionality, other Data Sources will dynamically update.
The sharing settings for Shared Lists are independent of your default Sharing Settings. All information (except Records with Opportunity data) included in the Shared Lists, will be shared with your partner.
Shared List from a New Report or Saved Report
The example below is a Greenfield Report (non-overlapping accounts with partners). Shared Lists offers the flexibility to add Overlapping and Non-Overlapping account Records to a single Shared List.
Once you have created the Report, click the box next to the Record column header to select all Records, or click the individual boxes next to the Records.
Next, click the +Add Records to List button.
In the next modal, select any list from the dropdown options under Shared List (or create a new list, follow the steps below). Click the Add to List button when done.
To create a new Shared List:

Add a List Description (optional)
Click the Share List button to send it to your partner
In the next modal, click Add Selected Records to List to complete the process. You will see a pop-up prompt confirming the Records were added to a list.
Click the View List button in this prompt to open the list in the Collaborate workspace.
When creating a Shared List using Greenfield Reports, the Greenfield Records on the list will be marked with a Leaf icon, which will be visible to the partner who is viewing the list. This makes it simpler to distinguish between overlapping and non-overlapping Records.

Will this work for greenfield (non-overlapping) reports?
Yes, you can share non-overlapping lists with a partner.
Why can’t I create a Shared List?
You must have Partner Manager level permissions in order to create a Shared List or to be invited to join a Shared List. Learn more on managing team roles here.
What happens to Records on my list if my partner deletes their data source or stops sharing data with me?
The Records will still exist on your Shared List, but will remain static and will not be updated via a data source sync.
Can I send a Shared List to multiple partners?
No, Shared Lists only work on a 1-to-1 level, so you can only share with 1 partner. However, you can invite multiple internal collaborators to a list from your org, and your partner can do the same.
If the owner of the list removes those records, are they deleted on the partner side too?
If I'm creating the list and my data is set to overlap counts and the partners sharing data with me, do I have to enable permissions?
As long as your partner is sharing data with you, and you are at least sharing overlap counts, you will be able to add that Record to a list.
Do you have to share account owner?
No, account owner is automatically on the list.
For Explorers with “Invite-Only” access, are they getting access to the full Shared Lists feature once invited?
Yes, they have full access to the feature if they’re invited to collaborate on a Shared List.
Will you automatically see your partner’s updates in the Shared List? Or do you need to manually refresh?
It will automatically push to your Crossbeam instance, and you will receive a notification for any updates.
Will shared lists work for all data sources, including sheets and CSVs?
Yes, but CSVs will be static and not active like CRM connections.
