  23. While the Replace is completing, you may continue to use the system. The quote that is in process, however, will have all pricing sections locked. These sections will be read only until the final replace is completed.

If there are validation errors with the new Product, Style or Options

  • If validation errors are found during processing, these will be called out on the review screen with a red triangle to the left of the line(s) with errors
  • Expanding the line(s) will show you the error messages

  • You can still continue with the replacement when errors are present 
  • The quote or sale will flag the line item(s) with validation errors in the Line Items section on the Quote Review page
  • Until the errors are corrected, a user cannot product any customer output.  The only selection in Generate Reports will be the Internal Order
  • Until the errors are corrected, the quote cannot be converted to a sale.  A sale cannot be ordered while errors are present.
