This is the best feature left to add to NiftyQuoter: Add a product in the price table --> its description (content block) is automatically added in a pre-defined content area.
I supposed it wouldn't be so easy to develop, but here's my idea on how to make it nice:
Let's say I'm a travel agency and have three types of products: Accomodation - Airport Transfers - Activities.
Right now, I have in my proposal template a few default sections (about us, price table, terms and conditions...) that are kept no matter what, and three sections (accomodation, transfers, activities) that I remove when i don't need them (if the client only wants accomodation, then i remove "transfers" and "activities" from the quote).
With this feature, I would remove these three sections from my default template. Then, if in my proposal I add a hotel (predefined as "accomodation"), then the "accomodation" section area is created AND the content block corresponding to the hotel added in that section area.
Also, with this system, if I add "hotel" in the price table, then the "accomodation" group header could be added automatically in the price table.
This is quite a big development i suppose, as it would probably require a real "product management" feature in the admin, but it would put NiftyQuoter so high above its competitors!
