How to send a completed bid

Once you’ve filled out all of the required fields to make a completed bid, review them one last time to make sure all the information is correct and that pricing is accurate.

Caution: Once you send a bid to a customer, you will not be able to edit the bid unless you clone the bid or create a new one.

To send, click the “Send” button at the bottom of the quote. The bid will then be sent to the customer via text and/or email.

If one of your required fields was incorrectly filled out you may not be able to send the bid until you fix the issue. It will appear like this in red.

    How to share a link to the bid

    • Navigate to the bid you would like to share
    • Click the 'Link' icon in the top right-hand corner of the main bid section
    • The link will then be copied to your keyboard where you can paste it into a customer message, email, or text.
