How to visiable OpportunityClose's description field? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My customer post a new requirement:

    Make OpportunityClose visiable. Because she want to check the close reason of  each opportunity records .

    But ,when i finish it , she found cannot get the information what she want:

    "Description" field of each OpportunityClose recorders.

    I 'll try to make a self define view to show this filed, but you just find there have no Description in choose pannel of view define window.

    So some one can give me some suggestion

  • OOB you can't see that detail in a view - here is an example that utilizes a plugin to write the data captured in the Opportunity Close Form to the Opportunity record itself:

  • Oh, on my options, MSCRM should provide some more simple methods to show descriptions information.

    and ,thanks for your answer.

  • The description information is not stored on the Opportunity record so you can't just "turn it on" for Opportunities. You might close an Opportunity in error, re-open it and then re-close it and the reasons for both events are stored on the Opportunity Close records individually (likewise Case Resolution behaves in a similar way).

    Copying the information to the Opportunity itself using a workflow or plugin is the most obvious way to put it somewhere you can easily view it.

    Hope this helps.
