      How do I create Proposals on iOS?

      Proposals are more detailed Estimates that enable you to add rich text content and images to your Estimates, making it easy to showcase the value you bring to prospective clients. Proposals also give you the benefits of Estimates, which allow you to send an outline of your Items or Services to your Client for approval before beginning the work, giving you the best of both worlds.

      Note: Proposals are available on the Plus and Premium plans only.

       

      Creating Proposals

      Making a new Proposal is similar to making a new Estimate, with rich text content and image options added. Use these steps below to make one on iOS:

      6. Tap on Add a Section to add additional sections above or below the Pricing section that are rich text formatting capable, and choose between a Blank Section, Overview, Scope of Work or Timeline)
      7. When you're done, tap on Save at the top right corner

      Note: If you want to enable e-Signatures and upload attachments to your Proposal, you can use the web browser and the steps here instead.

      In the Estimates section, you can also check the status of your Proposals to see whether your Clients have viewed or Accepted a Proposal yet:

      Accepting a Proposal

      When you send a Proposal to your Client, they receive an email with a link to the Proposal and a button to Accept it with a single click. This allows the Client to confirm your quote so you can start invoicing them.

      To Accept a Proposal yourself, you can use the below steps:

      1. Tap on the Estimates icon at the bottom
      2. Tap on the Proposal you want to mark as Accepted
      3. Tap on the ... symbol at the top
        Options for estimates.
      4. Select Accept and the Proposal will now be marked as Accepted.
        Accept button.

      Converting Proposals Into Invoices

      Once the Proposal has been reviewed by your Client, converting it into an Invoice is easy:

      1. Tap on the Estimates icon at the bottom
      2. Tap on the Proposal you want to convert into an Invoice
      3. Tap on the ... symbol at the top
        Options for proposal.
