Question : How to send email notification for Advanced Quotation to the approver requesting approval and return notification of the status update to the sales agent?


Answer :

In version 2.0.13.130, AutoCount has added this module Advanced Quotation. This function is designed to cater for companies that wish to follow more proper pre-sales workflow at Quotation level. The Flow consists of proper control on Open Quotation, Confirm, Pending, Approve or Reject and Success or Lost.

Together with Advanced Quotation, there is email notification to the approver requesting approval and return notification of the status update to the sales agent.


There are 3 things you must maintain before using the email notification function.


1) Sales Agent and Approver Email Address

Maintain the sales agent and approver email address in General Maintenance > Sales Agent Maintenance > tab ‘Others’.
