The source of opportunities indicates the origin of the opportunities. An opportunity is a business lead that has the potential to become an account that can generate revenue in a sales cycle process. Opportunities can originate from sources such as advertisements, referral from partners and resellers, trade shows, marketing promotions and others. You can use the sources available to specify the source of your opportunity in the opportunity card.
