With Mythradon Quotes, you have the capability to generate formal proposals, known as quotes, for your customers. These quotes include detailed information about the products and services being offered, along with predetermined prices.

When you create a quote, you are essentially documenting the specific items and services that a customer intends to purchase. One of the key benefits of quotes is that they enable customers to secure set prices for a specified duration.

In Mythradon, you have the flexibility to make revisions to quotes as needed, until you are ready to convert them into Sales Invoices. This flexibility allows for adjustments or modifications to be made before finalising the transaction.

Once a quote's status is changed from "Draft," it becomes locked and can no longer be modified.


Managing Quotes

To access your quotes, simply navigate to the main menu and click on the Quotes tab. This will display a list of all the quotes you have created.

From this point, you have the option to easily search for and update existing quotes. Additionally, you can click on the Create Quote button to generate a new quote.

During the Quote to Sales Invoice process, errors may occur if the category specified in the Quote is not available in the Sales Invoice entity. It is important to ensure consistency in category values to avoid any issues during the conversion process.


    Quotes consist of one or more Quote Line Items. Each Quote Line Item references a specific quantity of a specific Product or Service and the costs of these Products and Services.

    Quote Status State Model

    The Quote status is controlled via a state model that controls the transitions that the status can traverse. Initially the Status defaults to "Draft". When sent via email the status will automatically change to "Sent". Alternatively it can be manually changed to "Sent".

    From a "Sent" status the end results are either "Accepted" or "Rejected". Both of these status values are referred to as End States and can not be changed.

    Generate Quote Documents

    Mythradon supports the ability to export the details of a quote and it's related line items as a PDF document. The generated Quote PDF serves as a professional document that can be shared with the customer for review, approval, or further negotiations. It provides a tangible representation of the quote and facilitates easy sharing and archiving for both the company and the customer.

    To generate quotes in Mythradon, you can utilise PDF Templates. Depending on your business needs, you can have one or multiple Quote PDF templates. Mythradon also provides a sample Quote PDF template for your reference.

    If you need to modify an existing Quote PDF template or create a new one, you can refer to the documentation on PDF Templates for detailed instructions and further information. The PDF Template documentation will guide you through the process of customising or creating Quote PDF templates to suit your specific requirements.

    To generate a Quote PDF document:

    • Select the required Quote from the Quote List View.
    • Select Print to PDF from the Quote Meuu button.
    • Select the appropriate Quote template and the PDF will be generated.
    • Print the PDF as required.

    Print Quote PDF

    Note: The process of generating PDF documents in Mythradon does not involve physically saving them within the system. Instead, Mythradon locks down the fields on a quote when it reaches the appropriate status. This ensures that the information remains secure and accurate.

    Furthermore, Mythradon provides the flexibility to regenerate a PDF quote whenever needed. This means that you can easily recreate the PDF document with the most up-to-date information, ensuring consistency and accuracy in your quotes.

    By dynamically generating PDF quotes and allowing for regeneration, Mythradon offers a streamlined approach to managing and updating quote documents without the need for physical storage within the system.

    Alternatively sending a Quote via email does save a physicaly copy of the quote PDF document in the email as an attachment.


    Sending a Quote Via Email

    Sending quotes via email is a highly convenient and efficient method for responding to customers and prospects.

    To send a Quote via email:

    • Select the required Quote from the Quote List View.
    • Click the Email Quote button at the top of the Quote Detail View.
    • This displays the create email dialog window in Mythradon. The system will automatically use the default Quote Email Template to generate content for the email Subject and Body.
    • The Quote PDF document is automatically generated and included in the email as an attachment.
    • You have the flexibility to attach additional documents and literature as needed. This allows you to include supplementary information alongside your Quote, providing more details or supporting materials to the recipient.
    • Validate the email content and simply click the Send button. The email will be linked to the Quote and related recipients including the Account and Billing Contact.

    Send Quote Via Email

    Note: when sending a Quote via email, the system requires a valid email address to proceed. Here are the guidelines regarding email addresses:

    1. Quote Related to an Account and a Billing Contact: If the Quote is associated with both an Account and a Billing Contact, the Billing Contact should have a valid email address. The system will locate and utilise this email address for sending the Quote via email.

    2. Quote Related to an Account Only: If the Quote is solely linked to an Account without a specific Billing Contact, it is necessary for the Account itself to have a valid email address. This email address will be used by the system to send the Quote via email.

    By ensuring the presence of a valid email address either with the Billing Contact or the Account, you can successfully send Quotes via email and communicate with the relevant recipients effectively.

    Refer to Email Template for further information.


    Convert Quote to Sales Invoice

    In Mythradon, the standard quote to invoice process entails generating a Quote, sending it to the customer, and upon approval, converting the Quote into a Sales Invoice.

    Once the customer has indicated that they approve the Quote. Select the Quote and change the status to "Approved". To create a Sales Invoice, click the Create Sales Invoice button.

    The Sales Invoice will be generated with all the same line items and prices as defined on the original Quote. There will be a link on the Sales Invoice back to the original Quote.
