The Picture Book displays the items you are selling to the client in picture format. The photos of your items are listed by location and are displayed in two columns. You can have up to 5 items showing per location. The quantity of an item in the proposal dictates how many images of that item will show in the Picture Book. For example, a quantity of 5 dimmer switches will show as 5 small dimmer switches in the Picture Book.
The description displayed below each image uses the line item description settings chosen when printing a proposal. (Refer to Proposals > Reports> Client Proposal > Options > Text Options).
- If you chose to hide the manufacturer but include the model number on the line item in the proposal then the picture book images will show the model number without the manufacturer’s name.
- Likewise, if you chose to show the item description inline with the model number on the proposal then the caption below the picture book image will include the item’s description, as well.
