    • If you leave an opportunity without saving, any changes you have made since the last save, will be lost.
  • Transfer
  • Delete
    • This will allow you to delete an opportunity.
    • Be careful, because once completed this process may be irreversible.

    • The Close button will leave the opportunity and take you back to the Opportunity Grid.
    • Make sure that you save your work before closing if you would like to keep the changes you have made.
  • Advanced Analytics
