How To Style The Sales Quote Price Line Items

QuoteCloud is designed to automate as much layout & presentation of sales quotes as possible. When you first start with QuoteCloud, your default setup may need some slight adjustment for it to fit your organisation style perfectly. The main controls for the look & feel of sales quotes are in the Document Styles in sales quote templates.

When using price tables in the Sales Quote Editor, the presentation of the table when displayed in a sales quote  can be carefully controlled by your settings in your sales quote templates. This formatting control helps for a couple of reasons:

  • To prevent a Sales Consultant from creating badly presented (ugly!) tables
  • To ensure that tables are converted to PDF format properly

When a Sales Consultant inserts a price table, the preloaded formatting and settings from the sales quote template will be used for the table format.  These settings can be overridden by the Sales Consultant in the Price Table Properties function of the Sales Quote Editor. 

To edit the price table line item styles, hover over any price table line item and click on the Paintbrush Icon to the right of the table, as highlighted below.

The Line Item Style options panel will open. If the current style is set to the default style, the toggle on the right will show INHERIT

The options available to edit are:

  • Background
  • Fonts
  • Border & Position
  • Line Item Notes

When the toggle is switched to CUSTOM it will appear green. This means that the settings are just for this specific Sales Quote and will not translate across other quotes. 

To adjust the background colour of the colour headings, simply click on the circle and select the preferred colour. This can be done by using the colour selector range or entering the HEX code in the field. Click CHOOSE to save.

As shown below, the line items background colour is now grey (#d9d9d9).
