This article is going to help you setup a Zapier integration with Quote Ninja to automatically send incoming quotes if there are no incoming customer notes.
You can tweak this to meet your criteria by tweaking the "Filter" Step. I have taken as many screenshots as possible as I went through this to make sure this is easily reproducible. If you do not see the API option inside Quote Ninja, you are probably not on the Enterprise plan. Please upgrade to enterprise to see this option, or contact us to purchase API Add-On package (Only available to existing Black-Belt plan accounts).
Use Quote Ninja - Quote Created Trigger
Use Zapier Delay - For 1 minute - This will make sure Quote Ninja has enough time to validate the pricing & options.
Use Zapier Filter - For only continuing if the quote was created by a form request & if the customer notes is empty.
Use Quote Ninja - Send Quote Action - Use the rep you want to send with, and the template.
