The Worksheet page collates all measurements across the project and displays them grouped by stage. You can change the stage tables' view to show measurement totals by plan or by build total.

After opening a project, click the Worksheet tab.

GP Worksheet [v7x]

By default, the Worksheet will show totals by stage only.

You can also add measurements from the Worksheet by clicking the +Measurement button.

This will allow you to have the new measurement available on any plan linked to this stage.

Add parts to the measurement

  1. Click the +Part button;
  2. Fill out the parts form;

In the formula field, you can add excel style formulas for every measurement type ("len" for length, "area" for area, etc.). For each downlight counted (in this case 4), 10m of cable is allocated, so our formula is count*10 = 40.

  1. Click the Save button.

Add labour to the measurement

  1. Click the +Labour button;
  2. Fill out the parts form;

  1. Click the Save button.
