  • Allowances can only be added at the Selection level––not the Category or Selection Choice levels. More information about the different levels of Client Selections can be found in Overview: What are Client Selections?
  • If an allowance is not added to a Selection, ConstructionOnline will automatically set the allowance as zero
  • Permissions: Company Users must have Client Selections permissions set as "Can Create, Edit, & Delete" to add an allowance to a Selection. 
    • ClientLink™ and TeamLink™ Users cannot edit Selection allowances; however depending upon the ConstructionOnline™ Company's ClientLink™ / TeamLink™ Settings, they may have permission to view, approve, and/or create Selection Choices.
  • Mobile App: Company Users can add an allowance to a Selection via the ConstructionOnline Mobile App.
