A proposal or quote is a document you suggest to a customer to give him an idea of what you can do/sell at which price.

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 (Refused or Signed then Billed)

A proposal is closed when set to "Refused". If the proposal is set to "Signed" when the customer has agreed, the prospect attached is automatically set as a customer if it is not already a customer. Then, you have then to decide when the proposal will be closed. Once an order has been created or once an invoice has been created.

If you setup correctly Module Workflow, you can have a "draft" order created automatically. You can also to have the proposal being closed automatically when the order is created or when the invoice has been validated.
