Changing how your quotes look

Choose which information to display and change the colours and formatting for your quotes.

N.B. Any updates you make to your quotes display will automatically apply to future quotes you create.

To update the display of your quotes, view the quote you want to update and click the “Quote Display” button. This will open up a menu of display options:


You can update the following options – available by selecting a section from the left:

General options

  • Colour scheme (apply colour to your quote to match your company branding.)
  • Show quote notes
  • Show quote totals
  • Show breakdown of tax

Header options

  • Show company name
  • Show company contact labels (do you want to display ‘tel’, ’email’, etc labels to your contact information?)
  • Show quote reference #
  • Show job ‘for’ address

Items options

  • Description font size (what size do you want your text to be for item descriptions?)
  • Show item descriptions
  • Descriptions on separate page (do you want a summary of all items on the first page, with detailed descriptions to follow on separate page?)
  • One item per page
  • Show item prices
  • Show tax for each item
  • Show material prices
  • Show breakdown of materials
  • Show material quantities
  • Show labour prices
  • Show breakdown of labour
  • Show labour quantities

More information on displaying materials and labour can be found here: Removing materials from quotes

Footer options

  • Show terms on separate page
  • Show page numbers
  • Show accreditation logos
  • Upload accreditation logos (add new trade association and accreditation logos to your paperwork footer)

Display options are auto-saved

Each time you make a change to a display option for a quote, the setting is automatically saved and applied to the next quote you create.

So, once you’ve set a template for how you want quotes to look, every quote you create will automatically have the same look.
