Create your own item to use in the estimate that is not already in the database.
- [Instructor] Sometimes it's necessary to enter items…that are not in the item database or common assemblies.…Accubid allows you to do this…by going up to the Take Off drop-down,…selecting Temporary Items,…then you left click the first open temporary item,…and this dialog box appears.…You can enter the name of the item,…I'm gonna use duct tape,…and down below here, you can add all the properties…to this temporary item that you like.…
Specifically, material price and labor are important.…I'm gonna add a price.…I'm also gonna go down and add some labor…for each roll of duct tape, .5 hours, and click OK.…There's additional properties down below,…such as sort codes, and additional items…that you can enter later if you care to.…I then see that the duct tape is now a temporary item.…
I can left click it.…It'll open up a measure take off screen…and then I can select the number of rolls…of duct tape I'd like to add.…In this instance, I'll add 10.…Hit Enter, then click OK.…You'll see that the duct tape is now in the audit trail.…
