I've created a custom Opportunity Products field that has a picklist of percentages.

I need another custom Opportunity Product field to run a formula based on these picklist percentages.

This may be impossible, as picklists seem to be a read only field.

What's the workaround? I looked up some similar posts, but couldn't find my answer.

Thanks in advance!

Okay, what is the complete list of Picklist Values?  You could do something like this
TotalPrice * 
"0%", 0.00,
"10%", 0.10,
"25%", 0.25,
"50%", 0.50,
"75%", 0.75,
"100%", 1.00,

Hi All,

In the sandbox version of Sales force, i have requested the 'Readiness' email, and it confirms that it is 'Connected and Evaluating' but I man not recieving the email. I have tried several times but no luck. If anyone knows why this may be the case than could you please inform me of the reason why this may be occuring.

Any help will be much appreciated

I would double check to make sure that you allow "All Email" is turned on in the sandbox, sometimes it isn't.
Setup-->Email Administration-->Deliverability-->Access to Send Email (All Email Services) should be set to All email

Here is a screenshot depicting what I am trying to explain. 
The closed won is not reflected by the total value won, but the closed lost reflects the total value won. User-added image

There you go. There is your issue. You need to click Edit next to each value and change the Type value to the correct one.

Hi Guys,

I need help in creating a workflow. 

I have created a field on the opportunity object called ' Date passed to Sales.'

I need this field populated with the date an opportunity owner is changed from the profile Business Development to someone with a Sales profile.

I can't seem to use the ISCHANGED or PRIORVALUE fucntions without getting errors and i dont know what to do.

Okay, if you read the Error Message it clearly says that there is no "Owner" field on the Opportunity object.  You should always use the Insert Field button to locate the Field and insert the correct API Field Name in your Formula rather than just typing it in manually.

I'm trying to create a graph that shows the current and previous value of our pipeline. 

I have sum of value on the y axis 

I want date on the x axis. 

Currently I can only use created date or close date. I need just date.

Not sure of the best way to do this. I load in opportunities using data tools with a stage of "New" for any that have not been moved from this stage I would like to change the stage to the value "Lost - Expired" when it reaches its close date. Would a workflow rule do the job?

Stage New

No need for apex.  Time-based Workflow Rules or Scheduled Process Builder actions will do it for you. I like time-based Workflow Rules since they are easier to setup and manage.

Hello all,
An important KPI I wish to monitor is First Contact Resolution, cases that were marked as "complete" after one iteration, any ideas how to generate a report that measures this?
Thanks so much!

You can use a Workflow Rule "on create and every edit'. If the Status is 'Complete', and the PRIORVALUE() of Status was 'New' (or whatever your starting status is), then you can set a field "Closed at first contact' on the Case.

I'm trying to do something that I believe is pretty simple but I keep catching errors in my formula.

I have a field called To_Do_Date which if the date is less than today, I want to show the red traffic light.

If the date is today, I want to show yellow.

If the date is in the future, I want to show green.

Here's the first part.
IF( To_Do_Date_From_Task__c < Today(),
IMAGE("/img/samples/color_red.gif", "red")

Try this
     To_Do_Date_From_Task__c < TODAY(),
          To_Do_Date_From_Task__c = TODAY(),

Hi - I am trying to use a formula field on the Opportunity Record to display an image (traffic light type thing) - I have a custom Number field on the Opportunity called 'Number_of_Close_Date_Pushes__c.

I have tried to modify one of the existing formulae in the SFDC Knowledge Base as follows

"10", "/img/samples/light_red.gif",
"9", "/img/samples/light_red.gif",
"8", "/img/samples/light_red.gif",
"7", "/img/samples/light_red.gif",
"6", "/img/samples/light_red.gif",
"5", "/img/samples/light_red.gif",
"4", "/img/samples/light_red.gif",
"3", "/img/samples/light_yellow.gif",
"2", "/img/samples/light_green.gif",
"1", "/img/samples/light_green.gif",
"Number of Close Date Pushes")

However it throws this error message

Error: Incorrect parameter type for function 'CASE()'. Expected Number, received Text

and I just can't see what the issue is - help please :-)

Just need to remove the double quots from around your numbers.  Your Number_of_Close_Date_Pushes__c field is a number field and you are passing in text values as parameters to the case function.  Just remove the quotes like this

     10, "/img/samples/light_red.gif",
     9, "/img/samples/light_red.gif",
     8, "/img/samples/light_red.gif",
     7, "/img/samples/light_red.gif",
     6, "/img/samples/light_red.gif",
     5, "/img/samples/light_red.gif",
     4, "/img/samples/light_red.gif",
     3, "/img/samples/light_yellow.gif",
     2, "/img/samples/light_green.gif",
     1, "/img/samples/light_green.gif",
     "Number of Close Date Pushes"
