Adding Introductory/Contractual Text to a Proposal

Video Tip - Go to the 1:30 mark of the video to view information on how to add introductory text or contractual language to a Proposal.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Copy-and-pasting text directly from Microsoft Word, Google Docs or Apple Pages may introduce formatting that our text editor tool cannot read and will cause issues.

To avoid this, first save your Word/Google Docs/Pages document as a .txt (plain text) document. Then open that .txt file in the text editor tool on your computer (like Notepad for Windows or TextEdit for Mac) and copy-and-paste from there into the Planning Pod text field.

We provide a text field in each Proposal Dashboard where you can add introductory/descriptive text as well as contractual terms of agreement. This way you can use a Proposal as a signed contract.

This text will appear near the top of the Proposal PDF download.
