"Deal stage" not available in workflow
I'm trying to populate one of my contact fields ("Deal stage") with the value of the deal stage ("Negotiation", for eg.) when the deal's stage is updated. However, in the list of fields that I can pull the data from, there is only "Deal stage ID", which is a numerical value (1,2,3,4, etc.) but the actual String value ("Qualified", "Proposal Sent", "Negotiations", etc.) is not available. It seems to be pretty straightforward to have the string value when you can have the Stage ID. Any reason this is not there? Also, is there a workaround to achieve what I've explained above?
