Hi everyone, Come on over to the new discussions in Xero Central. It’s a more intuitive way to connect and chat all things business with one another. Ask questions, dish out answers, and get involved.

You can still view topics in the Xero Business Community to see all the useful knowledge that’s been shared there; and you can restart conversations you feel have been of huge value to you on Xero Central.

If you have brilliant ideas for innovations, you can keep on adding feature requests in the Xero Business Community, and voting on existing requests. There’s more in store, as we come up with the best way to take on your thoughts and share developments

Quotations please!

Started by Quinten van der Werf in Feature Requests | Done!

Can we please have a real quotation system to complement the invoicing?

I provide quotations to customers for many of my services before securing their sale. To keep a copy of a quotation in the system, I save an invoice as Draft and use the template system to try and mark it as a draft. It would be much easier to have a proper quotation system where you can turn quotation's into invoices and still retain a copy of the quotation.
