Simple Quote Management: Steps and Transitions
Available options depend on the current status of the quote and your permissions.
When Quote Management (without approvals) is enabled, the quote status may be one of the following:
- Draft — the quote is being prepared.
- Sent to Customer — the quote is sent to the customer.
- Closed — the quote is closed, and no further actions with it are possible unless it is reopened.
- Deleted — the quote has been removed.
The following table describes which options are available for each status and how the corresponding transitions change the quote status.
Some transitions are available only for a reviewer (Reviewer) and some only for a user without reviewing permissions (Sales). The availability is indicated in the corresponding columns.
A buyer can see only quotes that have been sent to the customer.
