To offer an alternate to the original quote detail, you can create alternates. The alternate number displayed in the Alt column on the Bidding Details panel acts as a sequence number to differentiate between the alternative items for a quote detail. The alternate number of the original quote detail is zero.

  1. Select the line item(s) for which you want to create an alternate.

  2. Click Create Alternate CreateAlternateButton.
