Labor & Material Dimension multipliers are not working!
Goldenseal estimating software gives you the option to adjust prices, based on dimension measurements. For example, you can adjust pricing for different foundation thickness, stud or joist spacing, plywood thickness, or number of paint coats.
HINT-- We have already set up the stock Assemblies to calculate correctly. If you want to add a new Assembly, duplicate an existing one that is similar, and you'll start out with the correct multipliers.
Turning on the Option
To use dimension multipliers, follow these steps:
Entering Adjusting Dimensions
To use a multiplier in an Assembly, follow these steps:
HINT-- If you are creating a new Assembly, it helps to start by duplicating a similar item. That probably already has the correct multipliers for this type of work.
Adjusting Assembly Components
To choose which Assembly components are multiplied by the multipliers, follow these steps:
Updating in Estimates
If you change the calculation for a multiplier, it will not change prices in any existing estimates. To update the dimension values in an existing Estimate, follow these steps:
NOTE-- When a line item uses a multiplier, it will still show the standard unit cost in the Unit Cost column. However when it calculates the Item Total in an Estimate, it will use the multiplier.
