## Probability in Pipedrive

Probability represents whether a deal will be **WON** by that deal’s expected close date. Pipedrive automatically calculates the deal’s value based on the provided probability, making your sales volume predictions easier.

Within Pipedrive, there are two forms of probability: **stage probability** and **deal probability**.

## Stage probability

**Note:**By default, stage probability is set to

**100%**for each stage unless adjusted.

The stage probability is the likelihood of closing a deal based on the pipeline stage it’s in.

To adjust the probability for each stage, go to the pipeline view and click on the **pencil** icon next to the pipeline dropdown, or hover your cursor over a pipeline and click the **pencil **icon there.

**Note:**You need visibility of a pipeline to configure stage probability.

## Deal probability

**Note:**The deal probability is always prioritized over the stage probability.

Deal probability represents the likelihood of a deal being marked as **WON**. You can choose a deal’s probability from the **summary** section of its **detail view**.

## Total and weighted value

**Note:**In a weighted sales pipeline, opportunities with a higher likelihood of being

**WON**are given more weight in sales forecasting.

The **total value **displayed in your stage is the total value of deals in that stage since the probability is set at 100% by default. However, if you set a different probability for that stage, your **weighted total value **takes the probability of the deals being won into account.

Here you can see the **“Lead In”** stage’s **total value** is $4,245.74, but as the probability in that stage is 50%, the **weighted value** for deals in that stage is $2,122.87.

At the top of your pipeline, you can see the total value of all of the deals in your pipeline, as well as the total weighted value (taking into consideration the probability set for each stage.)

If you’ve assigned any deal or stage probability, the weighted values of those deals will appear in the forecast view of your deals tab for revenue projection.

**Note:**A

**deal-specific probability**will override a stage’s probability, but count toward that stage’s weighted value. The deal’s probability impacts the overall probability for that stage because it’s combined with the stage probability.

## Weighted value formulas

Here’s a list of the formula used to calculate probabilities in Pipedrive.

When deal probability is set | [Total value] x [deal probability/ 100] = Weighted value |

When deal probability is not set, but stage probability is set: | [Total value] x [stage probability/ 100] = Weighted value |

When both deal and stage probabilities are set | [Total value] x [deal probability/ 100] = Weighted value |

When neither is set | Deal value = Weighted value |
