Estimate statuses

There are six statuses that can be assigned to an estimate:

  • Draft: This means the estimate has been created and saved as a draft.
  • Saved: This means you’ve approved the draft estimate but haven’t sent it.
  • Sent: This means the approved estimate has been sent to a customer.
  • Viewed: This means the customer has viewed the estimate.
  • Expired: This means the Valid until date of the estimate has passed.

    Expired estimates can still be sent to customers and converted to an invoice, and you can edit the Valid until date at any time. Learn more about editing your estimates in this help center article.

  • Converted: This means the estimate was converted to an invoice.
