Hi. thanks for the quick reply. i have done all as instructed. however you can not change the quantity to invoice. i can change a percentage or dollar variation only. I sell products only, no services. the example i used on the community board is i have quoted 100 eggs. i need to dispatch what i have which is 92 eggs and the balance of the quote is 8 eggs. i don't want the quote to close as the 8 eggs are now on back order. i hope that helps understand our situation here. thanks in advance for your help with this.
Thank you for the information you've provided, accounts-lswarc-.
I understand that you wanted to change the quantity of the invoice from a quote however as of the moment, you can only select percentage or amount on it. On the invoice Due column, you can select Amount and the next field on it enter the total amount to be paid for 92 eggs (quantity x price). The status of the quote will be changed to Accepted and you can select Create invoice to invoice the remaining quantity of the quote. The quote will automatically marked as closed once you've invoiced it all. Also, you can run a report called Quotes & Progress Invoicing Summary by Customer to see the invoiced amounts and remaining amounts to invoice.
