Life cycle / Business rules
When a commercial proposal is created, this is done with status "Draft". Then it is "Validated". You can then close it with status "Signed" (if customer has accepted it), or with status "Refused".
If the commercial proposal is "Signed", it can be converted into invoice or order, manually or automatically.
Create a proposal
The creation of a business proposal is done from a third party card. The third party must be defined as customer or prospect (or both). Also module "Commercial Proposal" must be enabled.
Go on third party card. Click on button "Add proposal" on customer or prospect tab of the third party. Then validate it.
Closure of a proposal
