Not much more info I can give. I'm new to CRM. I want to setup things so a Lead automatically gets turned into an Opportunity and then gets removed from the Lead when a specific field is set to a specific value. How do I do this?
You can set a workflow when a lead is assigned automatically create a Opportunity and other workflow when a specific field change and the value is x remove the reference of Lead.
This tool can help you.
If you go to a manual workflow you need create a contact with information of lead, create opportunity record with the previous contact and change the state of lead to qualified.
