Quick Products are a great way to save time when entering orders or estimates. By taking your most commonly used products and entering them in as Quick Products, you're able to include one or more parts along with common machines and modifiers in pre-set up products so you spend less time recreating those products. Once added to an estimate or order, you can edit a Quick Product just like any other product.
This article covers the following topics:
It is vital to keep in mind that many changes made in the management module do not automatically alter Quick Products, as we strive to keep the integrity of the Quick Products in place. Examples include;
- If a modifier on a Quick Product is unlocked and edited in the management module, it will not update automatically but must be removed and re-added to the Quick Product specifically.
- If a part is deactivated in the management module, it will still be available on any Quick Products that it is contained in.
- If a machine is deactivated in the management module, it will still be available in any Quick Products that have it.
You can create Quick Products from the Quick Price tab as well as while entering or editing an Order or an Estimate.
- Enter in the Quick Product you want to create including the most common settings. You can save Quick Products that are for certain quantities, sizes, substrates, etc.
The following information can be saved with Quick Products:
