I've noticed that when an opportunity is closed the associated task/s are not automatically marked as complete, is this intentional?
Our scenario is that an opportunity is opened, a quote sent to the customer and a task created to follow up with the customer in 2 days time. However, if the customer comes back before that deadline then we'll progress straight to a sales order and close the opportunity.
This is where we'd expect the Task to auto mark as complete, but it does not. Does this mean the user will have to make sure they also mark the task as complete?
If so this seems rather inefficient.
Please advise, thanks
I do see your point, thank you for the info.
I've got a sql statement that'll run to mark any outstanding communications as complete for the specific opportunity that's being closed.
Hi Will, I expect my chances are slim here being this happened a few years ago, but would you possibly have that SQL statement to share? I need to do almost the same, but rather completing quotes when opportunities are closed. It would be great to see how you went about that for the communications. Thank you! Kevin
The one for communications would have been something like
SET comm_status = 'Complete'
WHERE comm_opportunityid = #oppo_opportunityid# and comm_deleted IS NULL
Thanks very much, Matthew! I really appreciate it!!
