Adding a Proposal Line Item

Video Tip - Go to the 2:23 mark of the video to view information on how to add Line Items to a Proposal.

You can add an unlimited number of line items to a Proposal, and these line items will be automatically added up to provide the total at the bottom of the Proposal.

NOTE: You do have the option to hide the Proposal total if you do not want to show the line items adding up (in the case of a Proposal that shows different options or packages).

You can add the following details to an Proposal line item:

  • Item name
  • Description
  • Item creation date
  • Quantity/hours - Must be at least "1" to calculate a subtotal for the item
  • Unit cost
  • Sales tax rate (as a percentage)
  • Markup/discount (as a percentage) - for discount (negative amount), use a hyphen (e.g., -2.25).

To Add a Proposal Line Item:

  1. Use one of these three ways to access the Proposals tool:
    • Click on the "Proposals" tool button on the Event or Lead Dashboard.
    • Use the Quick Launch or Switch Event tool to select the appropriate Event and the "Proposals" tool.
    • Click on "Proposals" in the main navigation bar.
  2. Find the Proposal to which you want to add line items and click on it.
  3. Find the line items table and click on the "Add Line Item" button.
  4. Add the item name; description; item date; quantity/hours; unit cost; sales tax rate; and markup/discount rate. Click "Save" when you are finished.
    • NOTE: In the quantity/hours field, this amount must be at least "1" in order to calculate a subtotal.

After you have added the line item, you can add an image to the line item by clicking on the "Actions" button and selecting the "Add Thumbnail Image" option.

You can also move the line item by clicking on and dragging the up/down arrow to the left of the line item.
