Creating Client Selections

Set the Client Price of a Selection Choice

Establish prices on selection sheets for clients to view and approve by entering the total cost, tax, and markup of each Selection Choice.


ConstructionOnline™––the industry's leading construction management software platform––provides construction pros with powerful home selection tools that can improve team communication and streamline project management. As ConstructionOnline Company Users build and customize selection sheets with Selection Choices, they can set the client price for each Selection Choice by entering its total cost, tax, and markup. When selection sheets are ready for clients to view & approve, ConstructionOnline's Client Selections will hide the exact breakdown of each price and simply present clients with the final client price for each Selection Choice.
