Lead status



Unless Lead status has a certain value, I need to prevent the user from converting it to an opportunity. How can I do this?

Two options for you


1) You can achieve this with this validation rule


AND(IsConverted , NOT( ISPICKVAL( Status , 'Closed - Converted')))

2) You can also write a trigger as well 


trigger validateConvertedLead on Lead (before update) { 

 for(Lead convertedLead:{
if(convertedLead.IsConverted == TRUE && convertedLead.Status != 'Closed - Converted')
convertedLead.addError('Lead Can not be Converted');


 This Validation Rule and Trigger both will only allow only "Closed - Converted" Lead Status to be converted.


Let me know if any issues in it.
