Import Estimate screen

Use the Import Estimate screen to import cost items, bid items, and bid assemblies from other tools, such as Viewpoint Estimation, for use in bids.

You can import data into an existing job, in which case, the items are appended to the estimate, or you can import data into a new job. The Import Estimate screen allows you to import an estimate without having access to the Manage Estimates screen.

Use a template to define the structure of the import file. See Import/Export Templates for information on creating a template.

Note: To open the Import Estimate screen, click Administration > Utilities > Import > Import Estimate in the All Tasks pane.
