Estimate Markup


Starting with Goldenseal estimating software version 4.4, you can add an optional Skip Markup column to estimates. It lets you mark some items, so they won't have markup applied to them.

How to Use

To add this new column to your estimates, follow these steps:

  1. Choose Custom Layouts from the Options menu, and choose Transactions from the submenu.
  2. Enter Estimates into the Transaction popup field at upper left.
  3. Enter Items into the Breakdown popup field.
  4. Click in the breakdown table.
  5. Choose Add Column to Table from the Edit menu.
  6. You'll see a list of optional fields. Choose Skip Markup, then click OK.
  7. Close the layout, and save changes.

To mark items so they won't be marked up, click in the Skip Markup column. When Goldenseal calculates line items that are a Percent of Total, Percent of Hard Costs, or other percentages, it won't include that line item in the base amount.
