Create your Quote
Creating your Quote is super easy in Zero BS CRM. First up you need to choose which customer to assign the Quote to. Once you’ve done that you can use the Quote Builder but make sure you fill in the Quote Details below first (they’ll be populated into your Quotes)
The Quote Builder
The Quote Builder is a huge timesaver when it comes to creating your Quotes. The Web Design: Example (5) is the template included in the CRM.
Clicking ‘Use Quote Builder’ will load in your template with your Quote Details and save you typing out the whole Quote again with customer information each time.
This populates the usual WYSIWYG editor with your Quote Template but, importantly with
Information Missing from the Quote Template
If you’ve not filled in your Business Information in the Invoice Builder then some of your Quote information might be missing. The Quote Template uses your Business Name and information in the Invoice Builder.
Making your Quote Templates
This is the REALLY powerful part of Zero BS CRM’s Quote capability. You can create as many Quote templates as you like and use them on as many quotes as you like.
The easiest way to know how to do this is to go to the ‘Manage Quote Templates’ link and edit the example provided.
The fields that can be used are also detailed below
Once you’re happy with your template, you can save it and use it in future Quotes.
Finalising your Quote
Once you’re happy with the Quote that’s been loaded into the editor, you can finalise it and send it to your customer.
Save the Quote and once you’re saved you can send the Quote to your customer
How do Customers Access their Quote
Quotes are saved inside the Client Portal. If you’ve not generated a Client Portal for the user then they won’t have access to the Quote until you generate it for them.
We’ve added this extra layer of security to prevent quotes being accessed by anyone.
How do Customers Accept the Quote
Once logged into the Portal, customers accept the Quote by entering their email (again) for a final security check and then the work can commence.
Preview Link shows Quote Not Found
If you’re testing out the Quote Functionality by issuing yourself a quote, you may see a 404 page not found.
If this happens you may need to refresh your permalinks. You do this by going into the WordPress Settings and then Permalinks. Once you’re in there you need to set the permalinks to Default, save the page. Then set them back to your original setting and save the page again. The 404 should then go away.
