Scenario: Kevin works at Bikes Corp. as Sales Manager. Kevin wants to ensure that each time a large opportunity (let us say greater than 5 million dollars) is converted into sale, he gets notified. As Kevin spends most of his time working inside Outlook, he shall prefer to get an e-mail telling him the key details of the opportunity won. He would also like to be able to navigate to specific opportunity record from the e-mail.
