Create An Order From an Opportunity Record
You can also create an order directly from the opportunity record.
Assign A Referral Partner To An Opportunity
If you are using the Referral Partner Management module, you can assign a referral partner to the opportunity. For example: Your company may have a partner program that pays referral partners commission for the leads they send to you. When a partner sends you a lead, you will need to make sure the referral is tracked in your opportunity record so that the affiliate will receive credit for the lead. The commission is calculated when the deal closes and a purchase is made.
