When creating a quotation in Teamleader, you’ll be able to give it a different name than the default Teamleader naming of the word ‘Quotation’ + the deal number. Read this article to discover why this feature is important, how to change the name of your quotation and which variables and shortcodes to use in order to display your quotation’s name in your client communication.


Why?

The name of your quotation will be displayed on your deal detail page, in your files folder, as an attachment for outgoing emails, on mobile and so on. Renaming your quotation makes it possible for you to:

  • Give your own personal touch to your outgoing documents

  • Give your quotations a more descriptive title instead of ‘Quotation + deal number’

Default quotation naming in Teamleader

When you create a quotation without entering your own quotation name (cf. below), Teamleader saves the quotation name as "Quotation + Deal number" in the language of the contact person of the deal.

Example: If the language of your contact is Spanish, then the name of your quotation will be ‘Presupuesto X (deal number)

Note:

What if you change the language of your customer after creating the quotation? 

  • The quotation will have the name in the language the customer had at the time of creation

  • You’ll need to manually change the name of the quotation afterwards 

  • Names of future quotations for this customer will of course be in the right language

Choose name while creating a quotation

  1. Create a quotation and fill out the items on the quotation

  2. In the following screen, in the field ‘Name’, you can replace the default Teamleader naming of ‘Quotation + deal number’ and choose your own quotation name.
