Here you go:

Stage
Current stage of opportunity based on selections you make from a predefined list, for example, Prospect or Proposal. Entry is selected from a picklist of up to 100 available values, which are set by an administrator. Each picklist value can have up to 40 characters.

Your administrator correlates the values in this picklist with Forecast Category values that determine how the opportunity contributes to your forecast.

When you set an open opportunity's Stage to a type of “Closed/Won,” the Close Date is set to the current date.


Opportunity Fields

The available fields vary according to which Salesforce Edition you have.

An opportunity has the following fields, listed in alphabetical order. Depending on your page layout and field-level security settings, some fields may not be visible or editable. (Field-level security is available in Enterprise, Unlimited, and Developer Editions only.)

FieldDescription
Account NameName of account that opportunity is linked to. You can enter the account name, or select the account using the lookup icon.

If you change the account for an opportunity that has partners, all partners are deleted from the Partners related list.

AmountEstimated total sale amount. For organizations using multiple currencies, the amount is shown in your personal currency by default. Change the Opportunity Currency picklist to track the amount in another currency.

For opportunities with products, the amount is the sum of the related products. You cannot directly edit the amount unless the opportunity has no products. To change the amount for an opportunity that contains products, edit the sales price or quantity of the related products.

If you change the price book for an opportunity that has products, all products are deleted from the Products related list, but the value in the opportunity's Amount field remains.

Close DateDate when you plan to close the opportunity. You can enter a date, or choose a date from the calendar that displays when you put your cursor in the field.

Opportunities with a Close Date in a given month will tally in the forecast for that month, unless you assign them to the Omitted category while editing the forecast.

When you set an open opportunity's Stage to a type of “Closed/Won,” the Close Date is set to the current date.
