EDITING THE QUOTE

Editing the price

There are several options for changing the total price of the quote:

  1. Change the contract using the drop-down menu. The Calculation Methods are:

    1. Block time - rate x block time

    2. Flight Time - rate x flight time

    3. Statute Mile - rate x statute miles

    4. Nautical Mile - rate x nautical miles

    5. Fixed

      1. If selecting Fixed here is how to enter the price: Click into the flight leg on the quote and input the total price into the cost field. By inputting it into a leg it will refer to the quote type (retail or wholesale) for tax application.

      2. The second option is to add a line item. If FET applies the designator will need to be checked.

Editing the quote type

If the quote type is set to retail, applicable taxes will be applied to the price. If the quote type is set to wholesale, no tax will be applied.

Note: Once the quote is created, the user can edit the aircraft profile information by clicking the info icon next to the tail number and then clicking Go To Profile.

Quote Price Override

Users can override the quote total by using the Quote Price Override YES/NO toggle button next to the total price.

Override set to YES: Click YES to override/edit the total of the quote. Once clicked the total displays in the blue hyperlink indicating that it can be clicked and edited. The system-generated total remains unchanged and displays in parentheses next to the editable Total field. The updated quote total displays the overridden price in the following areas

  • Quote Search (Total column)

  • Deal widget in the quote (Total column)

  • Quote widget in the deal (Total column)

  • Quote widget on the Trip (Total column)

  • Profit analysis

  • Snapshot (Displays if a jet card is enough to cover the total of the quote)

  • Reports

Override set to NO: If the toggle is set to NO then the Quote total is calculated based on the itinerary and line items entered as additional charges. Once the quote is created, many modifications can be made to the record.
