report on average sales cycle length
There's currently no way to create dashboard reports for looking at the average sales cycle length.
'Time to close' doesn't do it, because that uses all close dates, not just dates for sales that have actually closed.
The nearest you can get is displaying deal created date alongside the date the deal entered the current deal stage 'order received' (in our case)... but that's not much use.
This must be a common requirement, particularly for SaaS companies.
Having to export deals and do a manual workaround is a pain.
