8. How to Utilize Workflows
Track and visualize the status of your quotes in progress, and indicate a completion status on all quote items and subassembly components to increase visibility across your shop’s floor.
The Workflows tile provides users with a high level overview of what work is left to be done on outstanding quotes. Check the status of your quotes against upcoming due dates to prioritize work most effectively.
- Not Started: All line items require attention
- In Progress (%): One or more line items is in progress, percentage is dictated by the number of completed vs outstanding items
- Complete: All line items have been finalized
Visualize the progress of the quote from the RFQ received stage to completion, and quickly navigate to line items and assembly components that need attention. This will allow for greater visibility when working on many quotes, or collaborating with many estimators.
To utilize the Workflows tool most effectively, be sure to update the status of line items as your team is working quotes. Line items will default to a status of “Not Started”, and can be updated to “On Hold”, “In Progress”, and “Completed” respectively.
In turn, the Status/Completion Percentage will be reflected back to the Workflows Tile.
