Duplicating Bids & Allowances


When you use the Goldenseal estimating software program to duplicate an Estimate, you also have the option to duplicate any Allowances, Bids or Purchase Orders that are included in the estimate breakdown.

That means you can set up templates that include Allowances and Bids for items that you usually handle that way.

How to Use

To turn on this optional feature, follow these steps:

  1. Choose Preferences from the Options menu, and choose Income from the submenu.
  2. Turn on the checkbox for Duplicate Allowances & Bids.
  3. Click OK.

To use this feature, follow these steps:

  1. When you set up a template, create Allowances and Bids, and include them as line items in the estimate breakdown.
  2. When you create a new estimate from the template, Goldenseal construction estimating software will also include copies of the allowances and bids that were in the original estimate.
  3. You can change the allowances and bids to suit the conditions of the new estimate.
