    IF ( LEN( Apttus_QPConfig__PriceListId__c ) > 0 , HYPERLINK("/apex/Apttus_QPConfig__ProposalConfiguration?id=" &Id, IMAGE("/resource/Apttus_QPConfig__Button_Configure", "Configure Products"),"_self"), NULL)
    CODE
  3. Copy that formula code and return to the Custom Fields & Relationships and click New to display the New Custom Field page.

  4. Select Formula and click Next.

  5. Enter a Field Label and Field Name, select Text and click Next.

  6. Paste the formula code copied in Step 3 into the text field and add the formula &"&useDealOptimizer=true" to use Deal Maximizer.

    IF ( LEN( Apttus_QPConfig__PriceListId__c ) > 0 , HYPERLINK("/apex/Apttus_QPConfig__ProposalConfiguration?id=" &Id&"&flow=Default&UseDealOptimizer=true" , IMAGE("/resource/Apttus_QPConfig__Button_Configure", "Configure Products"),"_self"), NULL)
    CODE

    The parameter useDealOptimizer is case sensitive. The parameter does not work if the case is not correct.

  7. Click Next and select which profiles can access the formula and click Next.

  8. Select which page layouts the formula field will be automatically added to and click Save. The Configure button is now available on the selected Quote/Proposal pages and can be used to launch production configuration and display a shopping cart that will have the Analyze Deal button available.
