Hi @Cree8

Thank you for your feedback in regards to MYOB Essentials and the Quote page.

Currently it will only show the wording "Quote". I would encourage other users that would like to see the option or the wording permanently charged to be estimation instead of quote to vote and comment if required.

Hey

 

Really not something that needs any discussion, unless you think everyone works in the same area?  I’m an electrical service mechanic (electrician) and you do software, oh different???  So then not everyone does the same work, can we agree? For example;  My lawyer only estimates.  That means there are at least two other industries in the work force that can't always use the word “QUOTE”.  What plant are the IT guys from?

 

“I would encourage other users that would like to see the option or the wording permanently charged to be estimation instead of quote to vote”   OH please, come on, how can you think like that?    Are you trying to be a politician?   I’m sure you can justify why it cant be done.

 

Please just change it to an option.

Hi @Tradecraft


Thank you for your additional comments in regards to this idea. We do understand that MYOB Essentials is used by a variety of business and company's to manage their accounts. This idea has been suggested to allow users the ability to change the wording on their transactions from Quote (which is currently) to be Estimate.  

All ideas are passed onto the team for their inclusion in the program. The voting system on the MYOB Essentials Idea Exchange allows for the program development team to get an indication of the number of MYOB Community Forum members that would like to see a particular idea included in the program.  If an idea does receive a lot of votes we do look at making it high demand which may increase its chances of getting developed ahead of an idea with less votes.

Once again thank you for your comments.

I need the OPTION to use the word "Estimate" instead of quote.  

I understand it is already available in other software such as account right standards but use a mac so essentials is my only option.  Although there are only a few votes so far it does not mean it's not HUGELY important to us and chances are there are hundreds of others who will use the "estimate" option but don't know this forum exists or don't have the time to register and vote (my husband is one example).

 

It shouldn't be too difficult to copy over some programming you already have in another product and add it to this one.

 

Have a great week and I eagerly look forward to being able to use this option in the near future.

It's annoying to have to register and find this particular forum to put forward needed changes.  Please make an ESTIMATE option available asap.
