Add Selections to a Category

Easily group & manage construction selection sheets using ConstructionOnline’s Client Selections


Through a user-friendly web interface, ConstructionOnline™ offers intuitive tools for delivering simple, comprehensive new home selections to streamline project management and personalize any given construction job.

      • Only one Choice per Selection can be marked as “Approved.”
