How about a field that calculates commssions for sales and totals them by product and sales rep by month. I can;t figure out why Act hasn;t done this.
There were a few discussions on this at one time... the issue is that different businesses calculate commissions differently. Some off Nett, some off Gross, some off the Sell price, some off the Margin... and quite a few with different rules depending on the product.
The problem is creating a system that would be used by most users.

most sales reps get a commission of the total sale price before taxes. Managers etc. receive a variety of different commissions and bonuses.
You might check with the folks at Exponenciel (www.exponenciel.com) - they have a reasonably priced addon called Automatic Field Calculations - it works on Contact, Company and Group fields, doesn't mention Opportunity fields, but it's worth checking with them - they're so responsive. I would much rather have an after-market addon so that I could control the calculations, percentages, etc.
I just heard from exponeciel and they don't have anything for Opportunity fields and commissions.
The feature would really be a valuable tool for salesaman and sales managers. They could take a job from the quote stage to an order and final to amount sold and commissions due.
I think this would be a useful feature. It's probably part of the wider request for some basic Math functions in fields.
