On the main page of the Requests/Quotes panel you can see the list of Quotes downloaded from Avinode as well as those created in Leon.

The main page of the RFQ - Request For Quote page is divided into 2 sections, which show all details in a transparent way:
Top-left part of the page shows details, such as:
In this section you can find available options for the quote status change. Changing statuses are corelated with actions, among which are: sending emails, documents, etc…
Independent from the status change actions you can always print sales document or send it via email using options:
Right below request details & quoting options you can find Trip details: Aircraft registration, Price, ADEP, ADES, TBA checkbox, Departure time LT, Arrival time LT, Block Time, Flight Time, PAX number and Ferry flight indication.
By clicking the + icon you can add a new leg into the existing trip - you can do it also in-between existing flights.
You can also remove the leg from the itinerary by clicking on icon. Leon will display the validator where you can perform the relevant action.
By clicking on the TBA checkbox Leon will allow you to save the quote/trip without specifying Arrival and Departure times. Such a trip will be displayed in the 'CALENDAR' tab as an “All day” operation (just underneath the date).
Below trip details you can find 3 options to:
If there are any issues with the quotation itinerary, Leon will display a warning icon in the last column of the itinerary - .
If you click on this icon Leon will display Feasibility check information window which provides specific warning details as presented in the screenshot - all warnings, cautions and notices enabled in Leon, plus the information if on the day of the quote (departure day) no minimum crew (defined in the aircraft profile for cockpit & cabin) have been assigned with the Duty on the aircraft (registration or type - depending on Duties Setup configuration). Also, a caution FTL close to limit for Cockpit/Cabin crew member: warning FDP length exceeded will show up if defined in FTL Settings (by Leon Support Team) FDP threshold has been exceeded.
There are 2 ways of creating price valuation: manual entering price for an entire quote and using a detailed price list for an aircraft and airports.
You can manually enter the Price in the field next to Aircraft. This field is only editable when the detailed price list is not added.
Be advised that when the quote is imported from Avinode and an aircraft is configured in a section FEES, detailed price list shows automatically and an original Avinode price is always displayed next to it and can not be changed.
Once you have added Request & Itinerary details and selected the aircraft, click button and Leon will show a new section Quote below with Aircraft Fees & Airport Fees (previously defined in the section Fees).
In this section you can manage the price list:
Each item is editable, which means you can change its name (for edited flight only - default name remains the same) and/or its price.
When you click on the arrow next to the price, Leon will show both airports. The default fee will show for ADEP only but you can still add fees to ADES manually. Another option is adding new fee available in the drop-down box below the items. When changing fees manually, Leon shows Total price simultaneously changed at the same time. Each item can be removed by clicking the icon
If it comes to Aircraft Fees displayed below Airport Fees, you can also change their names and overwrite values.
Once you reviewed the RFQ you can:
If you have created a quote for 2 different aircraft, or downloaded a quote like that from Avinode, after clicking QUOTE Leon shows a pop-up window with 2 quotes - mark a checkbox which quotes you choose to be sent.
It is also possible to send the email with the details for more than one quotation by ticking more than one checkbox.
Leon will then generate the documents that include these 2 quotations based on the Sales Documents templates.
By clicking SKIP SENDING QUOTE you decide not to send an email, but still the status of the quote changes to 'Quoted' in the main quotes list.
Similarly works sending CONTRACT or a BRIEF - Leon shows a pop-up window where you can send an email with the Charter Agreement, or you can click SKIP SENDING EMAIL - that will change quote's status to 'Contract sent'.
If you tick the checkbox and press any of the buttons in the 'Send email' window, Leon will revert to the list of Quotes. This setting will be saved so next time when you open an email window this checkbox will be already ticked.
The right side of the page shows additional panels, which will allow to see the quote in the Calendar, view the route on the Map, view & manage Sales checklist items and see OPS checklist items, manage PAX, add Notes or Comments.
The quote itenerary/trip is imposed on actual confirmed schedule of the selected aircraft. The information displayed shows departure-arrival times & ADEP-ADES.
The current day is always displayed in light-blue and the thin, green line shows actual UTC time.
The view shows the 7-days period. Click ← or → buttons to move for another 7 days backwards or forward, or click TODAY to get back to the current day view. You can also switch between UTC & LT.
Aircraft selection dropdown allows you to view a different aircraft activity vs the aircraft used in the RFQ. If you choose a different aircraft in the 'CALENDAR' tab, the activity for this aircraft will be displayed in grey and the RFQ will be highlighted green. This is presented in the main screenshot of this section.
Switching the aircraft registration in the 'Itinerary' section will reset the aircraft registration in the 'CALENDAR' tab to the same one.

It is also not possible to service OPS checklist in the Requests/Quotes. This can only be serviced in the OPS view.
Elements of the Sales Checklist can be set by default in the Flight editing section. Any changes to the Sales Checklist items will only apply to the newly added flights. If you wish to add or remove the Sales Checklist item, you can do it in the OPS view by using “+ADD ITEM” button.
In this tab you can add passengers on a flight.
You can choose either the PAX you already have in your Phonebook and add them in the “DATABASE” section or add Passengers as a free text in the “TEXT” section.
In order to activate the PAX boxes in the “DATABASE' section, you need to insert the number of passengers in the route section of the quotation.
In this section, it is also possible to add new passengers to the Phonebook or edit existing passengers that are already in the database. The process is exactly the same as described here.

When you use occasionally subcharter aircraft from another operator, our panel REQUESTS/QUOTES allows supporting quoting for external aircraft types with Subcharter option.
In order to use subcharter option create a quote (or edit existing one) and in the Aircraft drop-down box select 'Subcharter' - insert the price, add schedule details (or mark times as 'TBA'). In a tab 'SUBCHARTER' which appears in the right panel, select an AC type (it is mandatory to save the quote, if you don't select the type Leon will show a warning). Other details, such as: Registration, CPT and FO are not mandatory.
Once the subcharter quote is saved you you can manage it just like a standard quote. There is one exeption - you cannot physically book subcharter quote as option / confirmed flight into OPS module. However, you can still change the status to 'option' and book, but the quote will not be booked.
You can send Flight Quotations containing normal and subcharter quotes. You can send subcharter Contract and Flight Brief for subchaters using documents templates which can be customized from Documents Manager and Email Templates from Email Templates panel. In both of these panels you have access to fields values provided in 'Subcharter' tab of the right panel.
