Totals Page (SQL Estimating): Adjust the Job Unit Total
You can adjust the cost per unit (example: dollar amount per square foot) for the entire estimate and then spread the amount back to the estimate. Example: if your typical warehouse estimate price is $30 per square foot and your current estimate is at $28.78, simply adjust the entire estimate up to $30 per square foot (just type over the square foot cost amount). You can distribute amounts proportionally over the entire estimate or to specifically portions of the estimate (right click on the Adjusted total or Variance or click on the Spread Variance button to get to the “Spread Variance” feature). This is especially useful in situations where you have pre-quoted a project and you do not want to leave anything on the table. Note: the adjustment can be positive or negative.
