Some deals are put together as a combined effort of multiple different people potentially from different teams, we have therefore introduced the ability to split the profits from the deals between different users. This could be used to provide an incentive for pre-sales users to pass on quality deal to sales team and work with them on closing the deal.
See diagram below for a standard opportunity flow.
