Workflow Recipe - Clone a Won Opportunity

This Workflow Automation recipe will automate the cloning of a "Won" opportunity into a post-sales pipeline.

More specifically, when we mark an Opportunity as Won in a the Sales pipeline, Copper will automatically create a duplicate Opportunity, marked as "Open", in the first stage of an Onboarding pipeline, and add "Onboarding" to the Opportunity name. 

Please note: you must have Admin privileges in order to create a workflow automation.

Use Cases: 

Duplicating an Opportunity into a Post-Sales pipeline

  • “Once a deal is signed, there needs to be a seamless handoff to our implementation team, who have a separate pipeline for their process."

Create Renewal Opportunity

  • “Our service is an annual subscription and we need to win that deal again every year.”

Benefits: 

  • Save time on manually creating an Opportunity and remove need to re-enter data
  • Ensures that new Opportunity is created every time, removing possibility of human error
  • Data consistency and accuracy across duplicate Opportunities
