3130851 - Revenue Start Date and Revenue End Date Fields Logic When an Opportunity Closes

Symptom

You would like to understand the logic behind the 'Revenue Start Date' and the 'Revenue End Date' fields when an user closes an opportunity.

Environment

SAP Cloud for Customer

Resolution

On the creation of an opportunity, the 'Revenue Start Date' and the 'Revenue End Date' are defaulted with the opportunity Close Date field.

When an opportunity is closed, the Close Date is set to the current date.  If the 'Revenue Start Date' and 'Revenue End Date' were not changed, then they are also updated with the value of the Close Date (in this case it will be the current date). This is a standard logic and cannot be configured by any means.

Supposing the users want to avoid this to happen, note that this adjustment takes place only if the 'Revenue Start Date' or 'Revenue End Date' are equal to the Close Date. Hence, an automatic change of the 'Revenue Start Date' and 'Revenue End Date' can easily be avoided by changing the defaulted values to a date different of the Close Date.
