+ ESIGNATURES - If you have multiple places in a sales quote to e-sign and either you are named to sign multiple places, or it is set to anyone to sign, you need to currently get multiple verification codes for each e-signature - this has been changed so that a customer only needs to verify once based on their session.

+ SALES QUOTE EDITOR - SAVE AND PREVIEW - previously a sales consultant would need to send a sales proposal/quote to a customer, to be able to use the "order now" feature (order now is used when the sales consultant is with their customer and can approve the order with the customer.  The order now feature has been updated to allow a sales proposal/quote to be immediately approved while the sales consultant is with the customer, with esign and payment processing also available (if used in a sales proposal/quote) without needing to send the quote to the customer.

+ SALES QUOTE EDITOR - The price line description field can be configured to get a value from a spreadsheet in the sales proposal/quote.  This feature uses the same method as used for getting a product price for a line item, learn more here.

ii) for new QUOTECLOUD registrations the "Administrator" Role will have all the above settings as ON

iii) for new QUOTECLOUD registrations the "Consultant" Role will have all the above settings as ON, except for Company Template Manager

i) logic for the above settings you can have b) ON and c) OFF but you cannot have C) ON if b) is OFF

+ MARKUP/DISCOUNT CONTROLLER - If you set 0 in the Discount Threshold field it seems to create a bad confusing/experience for first time users when configuring discount rules and then creating pricing tables in sales proposals/quotes; 0 is no longer allowed in the threshold field, as it immediately triggers a discount in a sales quote.

+ SALES QUOTE EDITOR - update to the content libraries, the "manage" button (icon with three dots) now has a drop down with options to "Add/Edit Library", and "Refresh Library".

+ SALES QUOTE CREATION / EDITOR - QuoteCloud now allows the sales consultant to create multiple sales proposal/quote recipients capturing first name, last name, email address, phone number, for each person,  these data items are also available to embed as data items in a sales quote.

+ EMAIL CAMPAIGNS - EMAIL EDITOR - previously there were multiple buttons (the big grey plus) (insert content block) buttons in between every row,now there is just one insert widget button at the bottom of the content page.  this makes the content page less cluttered when designing the email message content

+ When setting currency for a sales proposal/quote to "Indian Rupee" and the profit margin widget is showing, it the currency value does not put commas and decimal points in, just one long number.  the format has been improved to make reading the currency number easier for users

+ EMAIL CAMPAIGNS - added the ability to link a sales quote to an email campaign, for a bulk sales quote send to an audience 

a)  fadded a "Create Sales Order" button to the Email Editor

b) the sales quote editor when used from an email campaign is the normal SQE but will not create a sales proposal/quote on the sales consultants dashboard.  Instead it will create a new type of "Sales Order Template".

d) the Sales Quote Viewer has been updated to understand the new type of sales proposal/quote from an email campaign.  The sales quote recipient (customer) can view the sales quote attached to an email as normal, however when they approve, it will create a sales quote on the sales consultants dashboard as an "accepted" or "Accepted e-signed" order (if an esignature is used in the sales proposal/quote).

e) the sales quote viewer also understands embedded data items, as this will work differently when sending from a campaign. i.e. customer name will come from the Audience data, some other data items may not work for a bulk send as these sales quote are created through the normal Sales Quote Create Wizard.

f) as a recipient - when I accept a sales quote, I am prompted for my details, (default the email address):

i) first name, last name

ii) company name

iii) email address

iv) phone number

v) address

+ DISCOUNT CONTROLLER -  the number of e qty discount breaks  has been increased from 5 to 10.

December 2020

+ SALES QUOTE DASHBOARD - increased use of local storage to improve load time of the sales quote dashboard

+ SALES PROPOSAL / SALES QUOTE EDITOR - Password protect a sales proposal, so that when a recipient opens a sales proposal, they must use a password that you give to them.  This is an optional extra security layer that you can add to your highly sensitve sales proposals.

+ COVER PAGE LIBRARY - UI update - modal page width increaed to 100% width to maximise the view of coverpage thumbnails

Quotecloud Software Extensions

+ SALES QUOTE REVISIONS - If a customer opens on an old sales proposal / quote that has been revised, the system will inform the customer - that this quote has been revised, and ask would they like to open the current version? YES / NO

System Rules:

a) check that the customer is still on the recipient list for the sales proposal / quote, if they are not the recipient for the revised sales proposal / quote, they cannot open the new revised sales quote, instead just show the information screen to inform the customer that the sales proposal / quote has expired.

+ WORKFLOW PLUGIN - Automatic Follow-up emails to customers - A new feature has been added to this plugin that allows the sales consultant or system administrator to configure sales proposal reminders to be automatically sent to customers.  This feature is designed to increase sales conversion by automatically sending a reminder email if a customer has not opened a sales proposal after a defined number of days.  The reminders can also be sent after a defined number of days since the sales proposal was sent, and if the customer has not opened it recently.

+ WORKFLOW PLUGIN - CC Email Alerts - It is now possible to set email addresses for the Approval Even and Payment Event email alerts to be copied to other people, such as your finance/accounts department, so they are alerted when a sales proposal is approved or a customer makes a payment on a sales proposal (using the QuoteCloud Payments plugin)
