Getting Started with ConstructConnect Takeoff

Term Description
Takeoff v. The action of drawing measurements on an electronic image that correspond to building objects. n. The visual representations of those measurements. Proper Noun. A nickname for ConstructConnect Takeoff.
Takeoff Item Replaces the term "Condition". A building component, such as a specific type of wall, floor, window, door, etc. that is measured and then costs applied for a Proposal or Estimate. Each Condition represents a unique building object, so if you were measuring 8' and 10' walls, you would need two Conditions.
Template A Condition that has been saved for future use.
Template Group A group of related saved Conditions (Templates) that can be added to a bid as a group.
Typical A way of speeding up the takeoff process by reusing or repeating something so the user only has to draw the takeoff once. See Typical Areas and Typical Groups.
Typical Area A repeating region of takeoff that the program multiplies out so the user only has to draw the takeoff once.
Typical Group A selected portion of takeoff that can be placed (marked) on the plans with one click rather than drawing all the takeoff objects separately. Sort of like a souped-up copy and paste, but all marked takeoff objects are linked back to the Typical Group so the user can make a change to the Typical Group and affect the takeoff wherever a marker was placed.
