It won't be in 1.1.3 I'm afraid, but it is a priority for future development. I would like to get some more feedback on how people would like this feature to work. I envisage a quotation to be very similar to an invoice, and created manually by an administrator. A button could be provided to generate an invoice based on the quote if required (the invoice can then be manually altered if necessary). Anybody have any other ideas about how this should work?
Well I think this is what I mean too about a request/lead generation system for invoicing system. See my post here http://www.nbill.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=42.0
This should be connected to a form for end users, requesting a quatation, where you get the varius data from the end user like name, address, e-mail etc. Should be easy to do with Chronoforms ( http://extensions.joomla.org/component/option,com_mtree/task,viewlink/link_id,1508/Itemid,35/
) He then click on the button and request a quotation from the publisher that are listed in the site.
The site owner can then charge the publisher for getting this xx quote/lead by different time/action settings ( by month, by yyy sent quotations, ...) like xx sent quotations then send billing to publisher bb in the web site. Could be complementary to Joomla components like Hot Property, Mosets Tree, SOBI2, ADSManager, EZ Reality, Jomres, Productbook, AlbergiHotel, CMS Realty, MisterAgent,Marketplace, Winebook, Restaurants etc Joomla components. They all can have usage of this component integration for a system like this.
If you do one for each you or someone else also can charge extra for that integration with this components too.
