    How to Use Job Templates with Shared Quantities and Measurements

    In this tutorial we will define a simple template for a concreting job that utilises the Shared Measurements and Shared Quantities features of the system to minimise the effort required to create a new job of this particular type. Please note that Shared Quantities and Measurements can as well be very useful when a job is created from scratch without a template.

    We will create a template for estimating the cost of materials and equipment required to concrete an area. For that we will need the following:

    • The concrete itself.
    • Reinforcement mesh that comes in 12.5 square metre sheets.
    • Plastic bar chairs that support the mesh at the required height when the concrete is poured.
    • A concrete pump. The pump hire cost is comprised of an hourly rate with the minimum of 4 hours and a per-cubic-metre - rate. We assume the first part to be fixed at 4 hours.

    Item Templates

    Item Templates can be thought of as price lists that at the same time provide a structure for an estimate. In this tutorial, we will create an Estimate template and then use it to prepare an estimate. Please note that Item Templates are different from the Job Templates.
