Pick if you want to create a blank proposal or from a template and check that all the information is correct.


E. When you move onto Step 2: Price, you’ll find that the Products from your Salesforce Opportunity has auto-populated into a Pricing Catalog for you. Be sure to hit Edit if you want to Mark as Optional or Quantity Editable. Please note: At this time, this integration does not allow Sales force Product “Descriptions” to Quote Roller Products-Descriptions.


As you move onto Steps 3: Edit and 4: Finalize, it acts like normal Quote Roller. And then you hit Send. 

Step 4: What happens in Salesforce after the proposal is sent.
A. Now the actions that underwent in Quote Roller appear in your Salesforce Opportunity, as soon as you hit Refresh.
