Pre-populate Shipping Address on Opportunity from Account

How to pre-populate the shipping address on the Opportunity from the Account?
As soon as the user clicks on New Opportunity, the shipping address from Account should pre-populate on the Opportunity Shipping address and this should be editable before saving.

Hi Praneeth,

To achieve this, you first need to either override the New Opportunity button with a visualforce page or create a new button for opportunity and remove the standard button from layout.

After that using the URL hack approach you can pre-populate shipping address (I guess custom field on Opportunity) with Account's Shipping address.

Let me know, if you need any other help.

Thanks,
Neetu

Hi Neetu,

Thanks for your reply. Wow! now, it makes so much sense. I am working on the URL Hack (trying for the first time ever). Hope it works! Will keep you posted about the progress.
