address auto-population from account to quote

Hi, we are pretty new to CRM and would like to find out whether it is possible to auto-populate addresses from account to quote. If possible, would you please let us know how this can be accomplished?

Thanks

Hi

 You can  do by using mapping

1.  Go  to settings --> customization --> customize entity --> open account entity --> go to 1:N relationship ---> find relationship  between account and quote  ---> open that --->  mapping ---> in mapping select source attrbute and target attribute


This will  only work when  you create quote from account form

This works only if you have a single address for the account. What happens if you have three distinct addresses (one for the account, one for biling and one for shipping). The different addresses are entered under more addresses under the account. How does the mapping work for this senario? Thanks

That will clearly be a more complex mapping - you can map both of the two addresses that are on the main Account form to the quote. But if you have additional addresses in the More Addresses entity, then you'll only be able to map those if you click the Look Up Address button on the quote, or if you write a custom plugin to handle this.
For this level of customization, you should really be working with a certified Microsoft partner who has the appropriate developer and implementation certs.

 You can  do this by creating a plugin. You  have download sdk and learn this.

Is it possible to use the workflow to create the additional addresses (billing and shipping) under more addresses at the time when the account is created, or does it have to be done by creating a plugin? Thanks

Unfortunately, no.  The Workflow engine in CRM does not expose the Address entity - so you cannot create new records in the More Addresses link at the time that you create the account.
