Using the products module, you can now bring in the products (hardware or software) or services that you offer into the CRM, associate them with your deals and also set the type of pricing.
For example, let's say you sell vintage commodities like vintage cars, wine, watches, etc. You can add them to Freshsales, configure the type of pricing (unit or subscription) and also associate the products with their respective deals.
How to add products?
Quick Add Button
With the Quick Add button, new products are a click away. Clicking the + icon followed by the
Add Product button opens an overlay that lets you fill the product’s information. As this button is permanently placed on the Quick Actions bar, you can access it from anywhere in Freshsales and add products real quick.

To add multiple products in one go, get your products and the associated user or owner who would work on them documented in a sheet and import them to Freshsales by converting the sheet into a.CSV/XLSX file.
How to filter and search for products?
Freshsales offers filters and sort options that make searching and prioritizing products easy. By default, Freshsales has a couple of views namely All Products and My Products. You can drill down further and refine these default views or create new ones from scratch. Using the Categories drop-down, you can also choose the type of product that you want to view in case you have multiple types of products.
To use filters,
From the Products list view page, click the show filters (funnel) icon and click the Add filter button.
Use the search box to select the desired field.
Once the field is added, choose the field’s values that you want to filter by.
For example: If you’d like to use the filter Owner, choose it from the drop-down. An Owner field is added below the search box. Click the owner/s by whom you want to filter.
The list of products changes instantly each time the fields under the filters are modified or added.
You can add as many filter criteria as you like by clicking the Add filter button.
If you use this filtered view often, you can save it by
