The type of document is determined in the Quote type drop-down when you create it (step 5 below) and the documents are then distinguished by the following prefixes:


QTE = Quote

EST = Estimate

PFI = Proforma Invoice

SO  = Sales Order


Step 1.


New quotes, estimates, proforma invoices and sales orders will appear in the Draft tab.

By default, the email will include a link to the customer statement. The customer can select whether to accept or reject the quote on this customer statement link. Alternatively, this can be done manually by clicking on the drop-down list beside the quote and selecting either Mark Accept or Mark Rejected.


Multiple quotes can be accepted and rejected by ticking the appropriate check boxes and hitting either the Mark accepted or Mark rejected button.

All quotes converted to invoices will be moved to the Invoiced tab.
