How to Add Sections, Notes, & Subtotals in a Quotation Using Odoo 17 Sales

Functional Odoo 17 Sales

A sales quote is a document that gives customers access to the price of particular services or goods. Usually, suppliers or resellers utilize it to start a commercial transaction. A professional sales quote provides a detailed breakdown of the goods and services offered, together with the associated costs and payment arrangements. It is an official declaration that the buyer requested; it is not a binding agreement. The consumer agrees to purchase the item at the agreed-upon price after acceptance.

With the help of the newly released Odoo 17 Sales Module, Users or Companies can make reusable quotation templates for their popular products or services, enabling them to provide clients with faster, more customized quotations without constantly producing new ones. Thus, this platform simplifies the process of generating quotations for clients by enabling users to specify product data, sections, and notes. Users can also rapidly calculate the total cost of a quotation order by minimizing the time-consuming operations of quotations.

This blog will give insight into the process of adding Products, Sections, and Notes in a Sales Quotation Configuration form in the Odoo 17 Sales Module.

Creating a New Product for Sale

Before generating a new quotation, it is vital to determine the products that should be included in the quotation. You can select the necessary goods from your product inventory. In Odoo Sales, this can be accessed from the “Products” window of the “Products” menu.

Enter your “Product Name” in the displayed form, click on the star symbol, and add a product image as the basic step of configuring a new product. In the “General Information” tab, you may apply basic information about the product. To manage inventory levels, choose “Storable Product from the “Product Type” drop-down menu and choose “Ordered Quantities” as the “Invoice Policy.” Mention the total price of the item in the “Sales Price” area. Add the relevant product details to the form's other tab sections, then save the information. Let us now utilize this product to build a new quotation.

Creating a new Quotation

Choose the “Quotations” option from the “Orders” menu to create a new quotation.

Adding Optional Products and Altering the Subtotals

Product sections and remarks cannot be added to the "Optional Products" tab. Only after you choose the "Add to order lines" option, represented by a shopping cart icon, will the invoice for this product be included in the subtotal area.
