Product Database

Product Database is a feature available in Team Edition where you could maintain an alternative list of products in Link2Quotes so that you could quickly populate product details when preparing a quote simply by picking a saved product from the database.

Compared to using product picklist from Act! database, Link2Quotes Product Database allows you to define further details in addition to name and prices.
