How to make the Effective Date field as Read only when creating an opportunity? (Doc ID 2292794.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 10, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Sales Cloud Service - Version to [Release 1.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When creating an opportunity the effective date defaults to one year from today. Once the status is changed from Open to won the effective date defaults to today's date.

User can go in and change the effective date at will.

This causes problems because they can back date the effective date putting it in a different period then the actual close date.

All financial reports are based on the closed date. Since this field defaults we need a way for the user not to be able to change.
