Using Auto Quote in Sales Handheld

If you are working with an opportunity for which the products and solutions have already been specified in the Opportunity Products view, there is a faster method to generate a quote. You can use the Auto Quote button.

When Auto Quote generates a quote from an opportunity, quote line items are created for each product under the opportunity that has the Auto Quote flag checked. The Quote Item fields are populated from the corresponding Opportunity Product's fields, as shown in Table 22.

In addition, information from the generated quote's Quote # field is copied to the Opportunity Products' Quote # field. The Part Number field of the generated Quote Item is determined by the quote item's product.
