Actual Close Date
This field will be automatically populated with the date the Quote has been closed won or lost.
Gold-Vision supports multi currency options, this enables users to setup sales in different currencies and sales reporting can be created using Local Value.
Quote Base Currency is determined by the User’s Base Currency predefined in the Settings area but it can be changed manually when the Quote is created.

When reporting on sales the Base Currency will determine the Value and Local Value of the sale:
- Local Value – the value of the sale is converted to the system’s Base Currency to allow for reporting.
- Value – the exact value of the sale in the Base Currency.
Please note that the Quote Currency will overwrite the Opportunity currency.
The margin is calculated automatically against the quote. Once the products have been added to the quote Margin fields will be updated with the difference between the Base Price and Base Cost of the products.
Open, Closed – Won, Closed – Lost
- When closing a Quote the Actual Closed Date will be automatically filled in with the current date. See how to create Sales Reporting here.
- If a Quote is Closed – Won products which have been added to the quote will be visible in the products sales list.
Before you add Products to your quote you will need to make sure that Products have been set up, see ‘Products’.
Adding Products To Quotes
See how to add products and manage Products here.
You can create as many Quotes as needed for an Opportunity. It may be that you have sent a Quote to a customer and they have asked you to send two quotes for the same business but for one Quote they would like additional items to be included or excluded.
When saving a second quote you will be given the option to replace the existing Quote with this one.
