Select the Interactive Page or Type of service you are about to create the quote for. Like Home cleaning, Commercial cleaning, Car wash, Mobile Detailing, Pet Services etc.

For Example, If you select "Use Existing Interactive Page" > Select "Home Cleaning". Then all the questions and price that you added while create a Home cleaning Interactive Page will display.

Now, simply select answers to the pricing questions, add extras, add any other custom option you want and done!!
