I am trying to get a default value to multi-line item in product, (go to opp > Products (Standard Price Book) > add Product > select some product name and click select) This window will get open. enter image description here

is it possible to make the quantity default value to 1.

  • What do you mean with "multi-line item"? Dec 11, 2012 at 7:24
  • Your question (and the tags selection!) is very confusing. You mean textarea fields? You can, as long as they're custom fields. Multiselect picklists? In that case only 1 value can be default...

You can default the unit price but not the quantity when adding a product to a PriceBook.

The PriceBookEntry is what you're referencing when adding products to an Opportunity, so you will need to type in the Quantities. (PricebookEntry has no field for Quantity)


You can request that Quantity default to "1" by logging a Case with salesforce. Then, you could even remove the Quantity field from the layout completely. I've seen this done many times.
