  • Quotes — the list of Quotes and Quote requests.
  • Projects — the list of projects.
  • Payables— the amount you pay for each project.

Quotes menu

Here you can see the lists of your quotes, multi-quotes, quote requests and create new quote requests.

Create new quote request

If you would like to know how much a potential project will cost, time frames for its implementation, etc., you can create a quote request and send it to your manager.

The manager can convert it to the quote and send it to you. And if you agree with the quote conditions, you or the manager can create the project after all.

So, there are two ways to create a quote request:

1. Press the Quotes menu on the top panel and then click "New quote request":

Or you can go to the Quote requests list and press the "New quote request" button:

In both cases, it will open the New quote request page where you can specify all the basic details for the request and upload files if necessary:

2. Record the request with the "Save" or "Save & Send" buttons.

If you press "Save & Send", the manager will get the corresponding notification and you will not be able to update the quote request.

If you press "Save", you can send, update, clone, delete the quote request and manage input files by pressing the corresponding buttons:

3. If the manager confirms your quote request, they can convert it to the quote and send it to you.

You get the corresponding notification and can check all the quote details: general information, payment details, taxes, deadline, etc.:
