Orders / Quotes

This option displays a list of all your existing quotes and orders whilst providing everything you need to create and manage your quotes or orders. By utilising the extensive features of the list, you can search, sort, filter and group the list in any way you wish, for more information on how to do this, see the Lists help page.

Sales Order Browse Screen

There are several buttons on the toolbar above the list, a brief overview of their functionality is detailed below:

  • New. As the name suggests, this allows you to add a new quote or order to the system.
  • Edit. Allows you to edit the quote or order currently selected in the list. An alternative to using this button is to double-click on the desired entry for the quote or order you want to edit. Selecting to edit a quote or order will lock the record so that others users of the system can't edit the same record as you. The lock will be released once the record has been closed by saving or you closing the form. If you just want to view the quote or order, then you can use the View option, detailed below, to view all quote or order details without triggering any locks.
  • View. Opens the selected quote or order in View mode. This option doesn't lock the record, therefore allowing others full access. Note that functions that would ordinarily save changes that are made to the record are disabled till you choose the option to Edit the record from within the View screen.
  • Copy. Copies the selected quote or order to a new quote or order. If you have a customer that wants to repeat an earlier order, you can copy that order and change the required details without having to start from scratch saving you time.
  • Ship. Allows you to ship (dispatch) selected orders that have stock allocated. Depending on configuration, this option will ship the order and generate a Sales Invoice based on that shipment. You can ship more than one order at a time using this option by selecting multiple orders from the list.
  • Close SO. Mark the selected quote or order as Closed indicating that it is complete. An order can't be closed if there is any stock allocated to the order.
  • Print / List. Print selected quotes or orders using a user definable template including Delivery Notes, Picking Lists etc. To learn more about creating templates etc, see our Report Designer section.
  • Refresh. As others using the system can make changes to the Quotes/Orders etc, this will refresh the list to get the latest changes.
  • Delete. Delete the selected quotes or orders. A order can't be deleted if there is an allocated or delivered quantity on one or more items.
  • Close. Closes the Quote/Order List screen.

You will notice that in the list, some column contains Hyperlinks, pressing and holding the <CTRL> key whilst left clicking on the appropiate will open the corresponding item in View mode. For example, in the image above, the first listed order is for 'BOUQUE', activiting the Hyperlink for the A/C Ref, will open the Customer Record for 'BOUQUE' in view mode.
