Hear a great call that deserves attention in your next team meeting? Or would it be a good demo to watch for onboarding? Make a library folder for it and keep it to reference later.
The library enables sales managers and sales enablement pros to organize different types of calls in various library folders for quick and easy access.

- Curate relevant call samples in the library and add comments guiding users to the key takeaways that will allow them to improve their skills based on the call.
- Create special folders to help new salespeople ramp up quickly, nuances and all.
- When you find a really good call, place it in the library and make comments against specific snippets worth listening to.
- When the main action of a call is in one (shorter) snippet, save the snippet to the library instead of the whole call.
