As soon as the client agrees upon the estimates, quote status adjusts accordingly. You should go to the summary of the Sales Quote and hit “convert to invoice” button. The system gives you two choices: create an invoice by Percentage or by Item. Note that, you will need to stick with one of these options for this particular quote.

Once the ‘to be invoiced’ quantities are shown, click ‘OK’ to proceed. The system creates an invoice for the chosen items and you will need to fill out the missing details before you approve.

To track how many and what invoices created against a progress invoicing enabled Sales Quote, go to the summary page of the Sales Quote, and from the right-hand bar, locate the list of invoices issued. And from subtotals table, check Remaining Balance. Next time when you create a progress invoice against this very Sales Quote, the window will show the available quantities for each product.
