Hey guys. lately I’ve been jotting down scenarios with all type of possible outcomes.
One crossed my mind and that is making a quote. Now As far as I could see, Currently I’ve only got a setup where a user could insert customer order, and press “Print Bill” and then it would print the order, but it saves it as an open, unpaid order.
What I would like it to do, is sometimes a customer just wants a quote on a product, therefore it’s not really necessary to save the order, it could just be put on screen, a print bill or print quote button could be on the screen, then once the order is printed, it doesn’t save it as an unpaid ticket or save the ticket at all, it would just clear the order screen and move on to the next order.
I can go as far as creating an auto command and put it on the screen to say EG"Print Quote" . But then to assign the print template, and have it to not save the order, but clear itself and move on to next order, is what I would really like it to do.
Hey Paul I knew per orders existed but I thought it acted the same way as someone pushing an unpaid order through only later to close it. Does it also record the data in the system as pre order. I’d probably find it best that it just prints what’s on the screen then wipes after printing without recording anything.
Yes, it seems to do that. No way to get around it.
So instead, I created another Ticket Type and I switch the Ticket to a “Quote Ticket” just before printing. The Ticket Type uses it’s own Number Generators, so I don’t lose “regular” Ticket numbers in the Process…
