Salesforce Einstein Opportunity Scoring

Salesforce Einstein Opportunity Scoring uses data science and machine learning to score the opportunities. It helps the sales team in closing more deals by quickly prioritizing the right opportunity. The Salesforce Einstein Opportunity Scoring feature gives a score from 1 to 99 to an opportunity that is available on the list views and on the opportunity records. The score allows salespeople to focus on important opportunities, leading to a productivity gain. The score is determined based on trends of historical data.

If the team uses the Collaborative Forecasts then the opportunity scores will be shown on the forecasts page. After Spring’20 the users can access Einstein Opportunity Scoring without having any Sales Cloud Einstein license.
