Proposals and Estimates

Automatic Invoice Creation

Now, businesses have the power to effortlessly create invoices right after a potential lead accepts or signs a proposal/estimate.

What’s Included:

  • The generated invoice mirrors the line items, taxes, and discounts applied to the products list within the proposal/estimate.
  • Businesses can conveniently review the invoice, make any necessary edits, and send it to their client for payment using the “View Invoice” action in the finalized list view.
  • Rest assured, if there are no product line items associated with the proposal/estimate, an invoice won’t be generated.
  • Furthermore, if the document contains multiple product list elements, we’ll create a comprehensive invoice that combines all line items and discounts associated with each element.


New Premium Action -> Copy Contact to another Sub-Account

Story behind it

  • After releasing Inbound Webhooks, our clients found ways to do many many things we never anticipated
  • One of these things (that even brought a couple of lovely tickets our way) was the new ability to Webhook Out and Webhook In Contact Details from one Sub-account to another.
  • It was a very clever workaround, but the functionality seemed straight forward for us to build out, so we went to the drawing table and started planning it

Why did we do it?

  • Even though there is a workaround, most clients won’t figure that out on their own, besides, the workaround can have some issues also within it
  • Clients will now be able to have Contacts shared across Sub-accounts and with that provide their different approaches, automations, processes and so on depending on the Sub-account it is in.
  • This will allow them to be more organized, in a simple manner, just by adding a Workflow Action with a few clicks.

How did we do it?

  • UI: New Premium Action where you can select the Sub-Account and option to copy tags and custom fields.

Reorganized Actions and Triggers(Beta)

  • Actions and triggers have been regrouped into new categories for easier navigation.
  • Each category is now color-coded to provide a visual aid in distinguishing between different types of actions and triggers.
