Configure and Customize the Opportunity Pipeline view in Dynamics 365

Opportunity Pipeline View visualizes the data and displays it in graphical formats based on the current pipeline phase of the records which helps the seller to find the records they want more quickly than the standard read-only grid. You can find more details regarding the look and feel of the same in the Pipeline View in the Microsoft Dynamics 365 blog.

In this blog, you will see how we configure or customize the Opportunity Pipeline view!
