Salespeople issues


Our Salespeople are starting to complain a lot about how much they have to enter into an Opportunity. We recently changed our processes due to growth and they are now entering in Opportunities themselves. Here's a list of issues they have and I'm wondering if it's possible to implement:

1) Auto fill from one field to another. Company Name and Opportunity Name. They want the Company Name to auto fill the Opportunity Name when they tab over. They are usually similar so they would just write over it.
2) If a value is selected from a multi-picklist, can it automatically fill in separate picklists with the values in the multi-picklist? The multi-picklist shows all the options and the separate picklist show individual pricing for each.
3) If you select an option in one picklist, can you have the default of other fields be something different for each option in the picklist?

Following is what you can try for each of the issues you have mentioned:
1)You can write a workflow field update which can copy over the account name to the opportunity name: https://help.salesforce.com/HTViewHelpDoc?id=workflow_defining_field_updates.htm&language=en_US
2)Making multiple picklists depend on ONE multi select picklist would not be possible, however, you can have  a single picklist value dependent on another single picklist value: http://help.salesforce.com/HTViewHelpDoc?id=fields_defining_field_dependencies.htm&language=en_US
3)This can be made possible if you use visualforce page and use selectlist on hose value you can then have multiple fields dependent.
