  2. status

    Archive Estimates or create custom status that can be applied. Also custom views. I need to be able to archive estimates that have been converted to sales orders and then invoiced.

  4. Will it be possible to add an option in Estimates to hide the SKU?

    Hi,

    I know it is possible to hide the SKU on all PDF's, but will it be possible to add an option only to hide it in the Estimates module?

  5. Fix the workflow disconnect for Estimates to Sales Order and beyond.

    There is no ability to calculate shipping in the Estimate. One has to create a Sales Order, then create a package(s), write down the info, back out of Packages and lose the data, key the total into the Estimate. When customer accepts you need to go back into the SO and recreate the packages, then move the confirmed SO out and on to fulfillment. Too many steps, redundancy built in. Should have Package ability in the estimate, and an accepted Estimate should also be convertible to a Sales Order (not just directly to an Invoice). Thank you.

  8. Item Numbering

    After several years of use, we feel that it would be helpful to have a label option to add Item Numbers to each item.

    Users may have the option to check whether to have Item Numbering in preferences.

  9. Individual filter for quotes and invoices as default

    It would be great to set an individual filter like ours „Company name“ as default so that’s not necessary to select everytime again and again to save time during the day. A better and faster workflow.

    For quotes and invoices.

    Best Regards,
    Markus

  11. Add section headers to group items by type on Est, SO and Invoice

    Would also be great to have section footers with sub-total of all items between the header and footer.
    This could be used for adding optional items. Option A, Option B
    It could also be used to separate one-time and recurring charges (without using Subscription).
    It could be used to separate Parts and Labor

  18. Auto estimate generate

    We should be able to select items and click on prepare estimate.
    this will save lot of time. and if you have already added all the items with description, buying and selling + Tax Treatment etc. Estimate will be ready in less than half a minute.

    for example : select 4 items and "click on Generate Estimate"
    you are done, just need to pick up the customer and send it.

  20. Mandatory use of Items for Estimates and PO's etc

    My client has sales reps that load estimates but with manual line items. This means that PO's are then created manually with duplication of info being typed. If there was a preference that could be set, making it mandatory for the Items to be loaded while making the estimate (or adding if already existing), then the loading time for the confirmed order thereafter would be MUCH less with less chance of error.
