Lead conversion on other hand is the process of converting a lead into an Account, contact, and or opportunity. Created from marketing events let’s check how Odoo made that easier.
Odoo has an option to generate leads before converting them into opportunities. Opportunity is the next stage in your sales process, once you have qualified the lead.
But before that, why do we even need a contact form?
This form is basically a space where you can add your client’s details such as (name, phone number, email ….) getting in touch with your leads is very important, maybe some need to input feedback, or know more information on what your client would like to see in order to win him. Of course, we can fill that on a paper form, but it is way time consuming, even when while organizing or trying to find a specific client with specific needs. With an online contact form, the number of fields can be minimized. It doesn't ask for much information only about what fields are necessary and wisely choose. Also, can avoid comments and feedback as in paper format. We can collect it later on the deal is fixed.
Here in Odoo, automated lead generation is an advantage for easier marketing. First, let’s make sure that "the contact module” and “website” are installed in your dashboard.
Go to Apps>contacts.
Make sure the two modules are installed correctly.
After installation of the Contact module go to the website module> Go to Website
Click on contact us and a contact forrm opens, where the clients can enter details and information.
Click on Send. Then a message will show on the screen that the message has been successfully sent.
Thus, the visitor has submitted the form, this will generate a lead automatically in the CRM.
Go to CRM > Leads > Leads, there you can find all leads. The generated lead from the contact form can be seen here.
This lead is later transformed into an opportunity.
Now that you have all the details needed, you can convert this lead to an opportunity like calling the client. Click on convert to opportunity. Don’t forget to hit the Save button.
If that lead section is not enabled.
Go to CRM application > Configuration > Settings > Enable Leads
After enabling the leads in your Odoo CRM application, you will notice a new tab on the top next to the sales tab where you can manage your leads.
Now back to create opportunity a new window will pop up with respective options available.
