Creating Client Selections

Upload Attachments to Selection Choices

Attach important files and documents to your selection sheets in ConstructionOnline™


ConstructionOnline's Client Selections serves as a hub for construction companies' selection sheet information, providing users with flexible tools that help them build & share new home selections online; document client approvals; and track key metrics like due dates, overages, and files. By organizing selection sheets at three levels—the Category level, the Selection level, & the Selection Choice level—ConstructionOnline™ ensures that there is a place to document & organize all of the information related to new home selections. Within Selection Choices, the most granular level of organization within Client Selections, ConstructionOnline™ Users have the option to attach important files from a variety of sources to accompany their choice information.
