Enter a quantity directly in a cost item

  1. Open a job in the Manage Estimates screen.
  2. From the Estimate tab, select the cost item for which you want to enter the quantity.
  3. In the Quantity field of the cost item, enter the appropriate quantity.
    Note: If the Quantity column is not visible in the Estimate tab, use the horizontal scroll bar to ensure that it is not simply off screen to the right or left. If the Quantity column is not one of the columns that is visible, you will need to change the column view to show the Quantity column. See Work with Columns for more information.
  4. Verify that the unit of measurement displayed in the Unit column is appropriate for the quantity.
  5. Select any other cell in the estimate to update the costs of the cost item.
