  4. Set the Priority and Due Date (if applicable).
  5. Set the Task To to the person who will be responsible for the job if the quote is approved.
  6. Enter the quote request details into the Description area (i.e. Problem/Request).

Once created, continue as either:

  • Simple Quotes - Used when the work to be quoted on is fairly straightforward. Once accepted, a simple quote becomes a task. It cannot become a project. Example: Replacing a set of automatic entry doors on an office building.
  • Detailed Quotes - Used when the work to be quoted on is complex and contains many stages, known as 'take-offs' in AroFlo. Once accepted, a detailed quote can become a project. Example: Building a multi-unit housing complex.
