Add a Cost Code to an Existing List

OBJECTIVE

To add a Cost Code to an existing list in ConstructionOnline

BACKGROUND

ConstructionOnline's Cost Code system ties numerous features together based on the type of work being completed. It boosts visibility for each division cost and allows you to stay organized and informed throughout the construction process.

THINGS TO CONSIDER

  • You can use this method to create both normal Cost Codes and Cost Code Divisions.
  • While you can edit Cost Codes, you cannot change a Cost Code into a Division or vice versa.
  • Cost Codes must be in a Cost Code List. If you do not have a List, you cannot add a Cost Code.
  • You cannot make changes to the CSI or NAHB Cost Code Lists
