Previously to create a quote TidyWork users created a Project and set the status to proposal. Quotes have a similar look and feel to projects, but are completely separate.
Users who are familiar with using Projects in a proposal status will find two key differences when using Quotes.
First, there is a complete separation from Projects. You must have the Estimator role to access Quotes. This means your sales team and your project team don't have to see each other's items.
Second, in Quotes you can estimate time required without assigning the quoted work to actual users (staff). This means your sales people can accurately estimate the cost and charge of time without knowing who will end up doing the work.
