Creating Quotes

In Zoho CRM, you can store quote details by manually entering the data in the quote details form.

  1. Some of the standard fields may not be visible or editable depending on your organization business process.
  2. In case you want to add or modify fields, please contact your System Administrator for more details on the usage of other fields.

Create Quotes Individually

To create quotes

  1. In the Quotes module, click Create Quote.
  2. In the Create Quote page, enter the quotes details.
  3. Under the Quoted Items section, enter the Product details.
  4. Under Product Name search for the desired product and choose it from the drop-down. The only way to add products is by choosing them from the drop-down. You cannot add them otherwise. Also, the search results are affected by words separated by a space. For example, typing "P" will bring up "i pad", provided the product name is stored as "i pad" (as two words). If it is stored as "ipad", typing "p" will not bring up the product. To bring this up, you must type "i”.

    To know more about a product listed in the drop-down, point your mouse to the Info icon next to the product.

  5. Enter the desired quantity for the chosen product.
  6. Add more product lines as required by clicking the + Add Row link. Note that you can add up to 200 line items in a quote.
  7. Once you have added all product lines, click Add Products to add them to the quote. All the details required for the chosen line item (including taxes, price book discounts and product description for the chosen product) will be populated automatically.

    If you have more than one item, simply drag and drop line items to reorder the product lines. To view the Product Quantity and Unit price, point your mouse to the Product Name. To view Total after Discount, point your mouse to Discount.

    If you wish to add the list price from an associated price book, click on the Price Book Look Up icon to browse and select the desired price book.

  8. To edit the details of a line item, click on the Edit icon that appears when you point your mouse to a value such as tax or discount. Editing a value changes any related values automatically.

    To view the Discount and Range details for the associated price book, point your mouse to the Discount value.

  9. Click Save.
  1. Add other details such as Billing info, etc by customizing the Product Details section. Read more
