Receive an Addenda or additional plan pages to your project?  No worries.  Let's walk through the process of creating a folder for the new plans.  

We will start on the Plans tab. The plans folder contains a list view of the plans.  You can create a new folder by clicking the Edit pencil to the right of the plans folder, and selecting Create new folder here.

Type in the name you want for the folder.  In this example, I typed Addenda and put today's date as reference.  Then click the green checkmark to save the folder. 

You will then see the folder appear in the list.  Click the edit pencil to the right of the newly created folder, and choose Upload files.  Click the Add Plans button and then select the Addenda file(s) on your computer.  

You can upload these type of plan files for takeoff:

  • PDF

  • ZIP (We will extract all files and folders from the ZIP and recreate them in your project!)

  • PNG

  • JPG

If your Addenda consists of files that are not plans (Word or Excel documents, for example) then click Add Documents instead of Add Plans. These files will be stored in the project for download only.

The folder will be added to the Overview tab, and the plans will be grouped by the folder name.

Suggested Next Steps:
     * Copy/paste the takeoffs from the original plan(s) to the addenda plan(s).
     * Create a label group to differentiate the measurements/materials from the original and addenda set.
     * Use the Text Box within the Markup tools to type Addenda on the new plans to quickly identify you are working on the latest version.
          - The font will default to black text.  Use the edit arrow to change the text to a more noticeable color.
