Use the following procedures to create project quotations.

  1. Click Project management and accounting > Common > Quotations > Project quotations.

  2. On the Action Pane, on the Quotation tab, in the New group, click Project quotation.

  3. In the Create quotation form, in the Account type field, select Customer.

  4. In the Customer account field, select the recipient of the quotation.

  5. If invoices are to be sent to an account that differs from the customer account that you selected, select the alternate account in the Invoice account field.

  6. In the Contact field, select the name of the person in the customer organization who should be contacted about this quotation.

  7. Optional: Specify or change other project quotation details on the General FastTab, Shipping and delivery FastTab, and Administration FastTab.
