Quote To Order Conversion in Salesforce

By | September 9, 2015

When a customer approaches an organization for any requirement, what do a salesperson do? They “QUOTE”. A “QUOTE” is a document that allows a prospective customer to see a predetermined set of items and quantities at a predetermined price, to be delivered on a specific date.

This Quote will be either approved, denied or it goes into the negotiation mode. If your efforts are rewarded with the pleasure of winning the opportunity, the next thing lined up is to create a Sales Order against the client approved quote. Sales Order contains all the same specifications as in the quote, including customer details, information about the items and the adjustments made to the price of items, and the payment terms and shipment terms, with simply a different Document Name Stamping.


While creating the “Sales Order” from the quote, if the user is bogged down by the number of line items, there are chances that some line item(s) is/are missed out. Not just this, but if there are similar products in the organization, the user feeding the data can even pick the wrong product for the “Sales Order” ending up in erroneous data.

Salesforce provides a feature for this functionality. All you need to do is, simply click on the button “Generate Order” that appear on the Quote page (refer to the screen shot below) and the “Quote” is automatically converted to the corresponding “Sales Order”.


This functionality not only eliminates the extra efforts required to create the “Sales Order” but also removes the remote possibility of manual/typo errors that could be encountered. It will also help to improve the business process.

If you don’t see this feature in your organization, simply go to the AppExchange website and install the package provided by Salesforce lab absolutely free of cost. A little bit of tweaking is required to make it up and running for your organization.

Post that your organization is all geared up with this “Easy to use” functionality.
