I call Quote

The default name is Quote, however this can be changed to something more suited, eg. Lead. Log off and back on again for these changes to take effect.

Valid until + (nn) Days

Enter the number of days that a quote is to be valid for (the default is 30). Jim2 will automatically calculate a date (based on today plus the number of days entered here) and insert that date on every quote created.

Header

The Quote header can be set to display a specific salutation and opening paragraph on every quote created. Enter that default header text here. It can be changed on the quote itself (from within the Text tab), and can be changed here at any time.

Footer

The Quote footer can be set to display a specific sign-off, including trading terms and conditions on every quote created. Enter that footer text here. It can be changed on the quote itself (from within the Text tab), and can be changed here at any time.

 

Add information here for an acceptance to a quote for signing as well.

Show Our Ref#

Tick to show the Our Ref# field on the quote form. This field can be used for any internal reference/search to include in the quote (eg. an OEM warranty repair number). A reference could also be generated using an event script. Contact support@happen.biz if this script is required.

Tick this box for Jim2 to warn when there is a duplicate customer reference.
