To get started, you need to log in to your Buildern account and select the project you want to work on. Once you have accessed the project, follow these simple steps:

Step 1

From the main navigation menu, click on "Estimates"

Step 2

Locate the project estimate and click on the three dots at the end of the estimate line.

Step 3

Once again, opt for the three dots at the top of the opened window. 

Choose “Create new > Selection”

Step 4

The software will transform you to the "Selections and Allowances" section. Here, you are free to customize your selection by adding a name, location, category, and optional notes.

You can also change the workflow for you and the client through the following options:

  • The client can change until manually closed

  • Close once the client selects an option

  • The client can change until the deadline

Step 5

Once you have completed all the necessary steps, click on the "Publish" button to finalize the process of transforming a line item into a selection. This will make your new selection visible to the clients.

NOTE: Once you create a selection from an estimate, a small blue 'S' icon will appear beside the estimate name. This icon signifies that there is a selection created for this particular estimate. Keep an eye out for this symbol, as it will help you quickly identify which estimates have associated selections.
