Click the Add Item button and a form will open. Check off the item you would like to add and hit Done.
Click here to learn how to add, edit, or delete wedding categories.
Adding Photos to a proposal
Navigate to Proposals and choose the proposal you want to add a picture too.
Scroll down to the category where you want to add the picture and click on the camera icon on the left.
Browse for the picture you want to use and click Open.
Adding A Component to A Proposal
Adding a floral component to a proposal is easy!
After adding items to your proposal, all you have to do is to click Details to be able to add a component to that certain item that you added to your wedding category.
A pop-up form will appear. All you have to do is to click Components.
On this next page, you can choose which component you want to add from the "Frequently used components" section or search for a component to add by using the search bar. Don't forget to Save when you're done!
Components and Varieties can be added/edited through Flowers & Supplies by navigating to Proposals > Proposals Settings > Flower/Supplies Settings.
How to edit an inspiration page for a proposal?
Open a Proposal and click on the "Settings" button at the top right then select "Inspiration".
You can upload up to 7 images. You can either click on the "camera icon" and it will take you to your computer files where you can just search for the images on your computer or if you already have the folder where images are on, just click and drag them to the "camera icon".
You can delete images on your Inspiration Page by hovering your mouse cursor to the middle of the image and clicking the 'trash can' icon which will appear.
Take additional notes on in the Description field. Write about the mood or key aesthetic points that you and your customers are striving towards. Any text entered will save automatically after clicking outside the text field.
Note: the Inspiration Page will only print once images are added.
How Do I Change the Status of A Proposal?
Changing the status of a proposal is now easier than ever with advanced proposals.
In your Floranext dashboard, navigate to Proposals and use the dropdown menu attached to each proposal to quickly change the status.
Once you have changed the status of a proposal, you can use the header buttons to show proposals of different statuses.
How Do I Change the Markups on A Proposal?
If you have set your markups in Proposal Settings, they should automatically populate on each new proposal you create.
However, sometimes you may need to make adjustments based on your customer, the season, or your supply of goods.
To do so, navigate to the top of the proposal page and click Settings, then select Markups.
Note: If you adjust your Floral and Supply Markups all previously added items will be updated. If you adjust your labor markup, it will only affect newly created items.
By using the Proposal Calendar, you can easily check your events on a calendar view for effortless managing!
You can access your proposal calendar by navigating to Proposal > Calendar.
You can change your calendar by month or by year simply by going to the top right, where you'll see a mini-calendar to choose the month and year.
You can click on any date with an event and view the details of the events that are scheduled on that day.
Upon clicking on an event, you can change the status of your proposal or just click on that event and go straight to your proposal for editing.
