Creating a New Opportunity

Opportunities can be created for an existing Contact or you can create a new Contact as part of the process of creating the Opportunity. Opportunities may involve new business/account opening or performing account activity on an existing account.

  4. Use the Search box to locate the Contact you want to add an Opportunity for.
  5. Click the move control on the Contact you want.
  6. To perform account actions on an existing account, select the account from the Client’s list on the right. To create the opportunity for a new account, leave the selection as Not applicable.
  7. Click Save to create the Opportunity.
