Quotes can be configured in Quote Management Settings to Expire after a certain amount of time. On the Quote itself, you can specify a date that the quote will expire. The Reminder feature automatically sends the customer a reminder email a certain number of days after Quote creation if that Quote is Available and has not been converted to an Order yet.
