This blog explains the sales area and sales unit determination functionality in opportunity.

Firstly, sales area is mainly determined automatically based on the account and employee sales data. This functionality can be scoped in after selecting the respective scoping question available in opportunity.Below screenshot shows the scoping question as available under opportunity section.

If user wants to maintain sales area manually in opportunity then below scoping question needs to be selected.

      The issue that we have is that the determination we need is
      "Sales Unit of the Employee Responsible for the Account".

      Is there any way to get this added?

      Dear Ron Butterman,

      You can try the below steps in determinations under involved parties.

      1. Enable "Employee Responsible of Account Team" for employee responsible role.
      2. Enable "Functional Organizational Unit of Employee Responsible" for sales unit role.

      Kindly try this.
