Zones

In this webinar, we will discuss Zones on the Drawing Screen which allows estimators to break a page into physical or logical pieces.

Why Use Zones:

A zone is best used when you are working in a specific area. For example, when jobs are built in phases, the General Contractor wants you to work in a particular area, or you can get an accurate material list for an exact section.

Topics:

  • How to create and configure a zone on the takeoff screen.
  • Cover the rules associated with zones.
  • Demonstrate the end result of creating zones.
