Hi Deepak,

 

Thank you for your feedback.  As of Summer '13, Opportunity Splits Object is not customizable i.e. it does not support addition of custom fields, validation rules, triggers, workflows etc on Opportunity Splits Object.  However, this is something we are planning in our roadmap #Safe Harbor.  In the interim, customers can create a Visual Force (VF) Page with a similar look and feel to the standard Splits Multi-Edit UI page as in Summer '13 and enforce a client side validation on the VF Page.  Yes a small customization but would work in the interim, while we enhance the feature in our roadmap.  Recommended to have a similar look-and-feel for the custom VF page so that your end users have the same user experience for splitting opportunity and you dont need to re-train them when moving to standard UI (Splits Multi-Edit) with validation rules in future, when you have this capability natively in Salesforce.

Is it possible to access Opportunity Split data via trigger / workflows / validation rules yet? 

 

I need to update a bonus object with values from Opportunity split. 

 

Thanks in advance
