Estimating Simplified uses the same DataSource as SOS -Estimating/Invoicing/Payroll. You
must first convert the DataSource for use with Estimating Simplified using the
Import/Export utilities that are included with SOS -Estimating/Invoicing/Payroll or Simply Estimating. Once the DataSource is
converted you are ready to begin selecting materials. See GettingStarted.aspx for more info.
There are a few differences between the desktop version & the Android version.
Materials are still selected basically the same way. Tap on an item and the Material
prices, and Labor-Rates, are shown in a status bar located near the bottom of the
screen, if your device has a width of 800dp or greater in Landscape Mode you will
see an expanded layout will Material, Labor, Tax, & Markups, as well as the
resale price of the Item. Long tap to select items from the list to be included in your estimate.
When materials have been added to your estimate the resale price will be used.
The materials in your DataBase are able to be edited, new materials can be added
or existing items can be deleted by using the DataBase Maintenance Utility.
See Database Maintenance for more info.
