  • Hello,

    Yes, you can develop code that will create clone of your current opportunity.

  • Hi ,

    There is a  similiar issue like yours.

    You can add a ribbon button. Clicking of this button you can trigger a plugin. In plugin you can use that code.

  • As per the previous posts, you will need to write code to do this. For coping an entity like the opportunity, there are two specific considerations to handle in the code:

    1. Do you want to copy the opportunityproducts as well as the opportunity ?
    2. How to manage the state of the opportunity, especially if the source opportunity has been closed
