My system setup involves Opportunities having an extra "Billing Contact" field, and when Sales Reps change this field, I want to be able for them to see, on the Opportunity Edit form/page, a property of that "Billing Contact" so that they can verify that they have chosen correctly.

And I want to do this before they save. I have a formula field which will show it after they save, but that creates really clunky UI.

Is there any hope for me?

  • I am totally down for using VisualForce, but I really don't understand how to use VisualForce to edit only a small portion of a form. Really VisualForce is pretty confusing at this point, I don't yet have enough understanding to modify the examples in the docs. – AlexTopHat Dec 3 '13 at 20:02

Im afraid this wont be possible with native SF. You could accomplish this with a VF page, but I'm assuming you are asking if it can be done with the standard pages.

Sorry its not better news.
