How to edit lead or opportunity stage?

on 4/4/13, 12:49 PM 5,458 views

In openERP v6.1 the method by which a stage could be changed on a lead or opportunity was a green arrow which the user could press.

In v7 I cannot see a way to change the stage of a lead (even when editing the lead it is not possible to change the status under 'extra info').

For opportunities the stage can be changed from the Kanban view, but again I can't see how to from form view. Sometimes the blue icon in the top right appears as an array of arrows and sometimes just a single box (this does not appear to be consistent each time an opportunity is opened).

Is there a simple way to do this?

Thanks! Lawrence

The available stages are depending on the sales team. If your opportunity has a sales team defined, in the form view, the stages appear on the top right and you can click on a stage to change it.

You can also drag & drop from the kanban view.

Thank you!

To change a state of a lead, you can drag&drop it to the new state.

Under Sales->Sales->Leads I can't see a way to view in kanban view, meaning it's not possible to do as you say (only in opportunities can this be done).

In V7, I create a lead. When saving this, I get a button called 'Convert to Opportunity'. When clicking this button, it shows a window, with the option of choosing the conversion action and the related customer. You might have to add additional info to the lead in order to convert it to a new customer.

When I go to the opportunity, I have a button to 'Mark won', 'Mark lost' and 'Convert quotation'. The last button gives me a screen to specify some additional info and will create a new Quotation for this user.

I am using openERP V7, from nightly (and updated today).
