Opportunity Win Rate measures how many opportunities you won, divided by the total number of opps created.  To calculate opportunity win rate, divide the number of closed won deals in a particular time period by the total number of opportunities you created in that period.

Opportunity Win Rate measures how many opportunities you won, divided by the total number of opps created.

For example, if you created 20 opps in October, and won 8 deals in October, then your Opportunity Win Rate for October would be 8 / 20 = 40%.

Opportunity win rate is sometimes called a rolling close rate, because you are measuring it on a rolling basis where you're looking at deals won compared against opps created.
