To create a sales order, click Enter New Order from the left sidebar on the main window.

Create a Sales Order from an Existing Quote

Select a quote from the drop-down menu, or open the quote list and select an existing quote. The quote details, including customer and item information, will be filled out for you. You can change any of the information necessary to update the sales order. When you are finished, see Completing the Sales Order below.

Create a New Sales Order

If you will not be converting an existing quote into a sales order, enter the customer's name and address, and specify the sales order details in the fields at the top of the screen. Enter item information by clicking in the item list area, and entering the item details for the order.
