Proposal Reports



This page will describe the "non-Install Price" reports in SI. There are three of these reports and they are named: Proposal, Proposal With Images, and Proposal With Large Images.

The only differences between these reports are whether images for Products display, and if so, what size the image is.

Accessories and Packages


Proposal reports are the only reports in SI that will display Accessories with their "parent" Item and they are the only reports that will display Packages with all Items grouped together. If for some reason you don't want to keep Accessories with the parent Item or if you don't want to show Packages in your Proposals, there are Report Settings for these.



Proposals have the following default Report Definitions:




Proposals can have up to three levels of groupings. For example, you could create a Report Definition that groups "By Location By System By Category".

Layout and Fields

Cover Page


Proposals have a cover page that displays Client information (project name, name, address, etc.), your Company Information, and an Image.

The graphic colors can be changed via Report Themes.


The image that displays in the middle can be changed via a Report Setting or on a per Project basis. See Cover Page Image for details.



In the body of the report, there is a page header graphic and a group header graphic for the first grouping. These can be changed via Report Themes. In the image below, the report was run "By Location".




The fields that display for each item are: Image (depending on the report chosen), Quantity, Manufacturer, Model, Description, and Price.


Manufacturer, Model, and pricing can be turned off via settings in the Report Definition.


By default, only Products display on these reports, not Labor Items. You can choose to display Labor Items via a setting in the Report Definition but the price for the Labor Items will not display. This because all pricing on this report does not include labor until the very end of the report. In the shot below, the option to show Labor Items was selected:

At the end of each grouping, there is a subtotal.In the image below, the report was run "By Location".

If you are using Price Adjustments, these will display in the Project Summary. You can change the wording of each of these fields via Report Settings.

You can choose to break your labor out by Phase via a setting in the Report Definition. Each Phase will list on separate lines, and if using the Management and Design fields on your Phases, they will be combined into one line item each with the totals from each Phase.

If you use the Discount field for Products within a Project, by default they will not show here in the Project Summary section. You can choose to display the discount here via a setting in the Report Definition. You can change the wording this field via Report Settings.




You can choose to separate Sales Tax from your Labor Sales Tax via the Report Settings. You can also change the wording of these fields via Report Settings.
