The Customer Quote Status is used to manage the status of the quote. Some functions are restricted by status settings. Default settings are:
Active - the quote is current and eligible to convert to an invoice.
Accepted - the quote has been agreed by the customer. A quote status automatically updates to Accepted when it is converted to an Invoice. Additionally, the status can manually be updated to Accepted.
Declined - the status was declined by the customer. A Declined quote cannot be converted to an invoice.
Follow Up - further action is required on the quote.
An organisation may have additional status' that are used in quotes and these are defined by the business.
Status' are manually updated within a quote as required. The exception to this is when a quote is converted to an invoice where the status automatically updates to Accepted.
Quote Status is available as a filter for managing quotes on the main Quotes screen.
