Understanding the Relationship Stage field
Relationship Stage represents the path an opportunity goes through in a campaign. Each stage represents a stage in your workflow -- from composing an email, to sending it, to successfully/unsuccessfully getting a placement.
The Relationship Stage field includes a default set of stages, but depending on the type of campaigns you're running and the workflow for your team, you may want to customize the stages.
NOTE: For Website records, not all stages can be customized. This is because BuzzStream automatically changes the stage when an email is sent, an email is replied to, and when a link is discovered.
