Copying/Duplicating Option Required in Autodesk Takeoff Type Template.

Copying/Duplicating Option Required in Autodesk Takeoff Type Template.

When creating a Takeoff Template, currently, the takeoff types have to be manually created for each part, which is time-consuming.

We need a functionality that allows us to copy/duplicate/import-export options, which will significantly reduce the need for manual entries.

Good day Muhammad.

Thank you for sharing the need here. Are you aware you can create a template from an existing project so that you don't have to start from an empty project? You can create a template from an existing project that best matches the profile of the type of template you need to bring across most of the settings including the Packages and Takeoff Types. That should get a large percentage of the entries you need into the template. That being said, we will consider this improvement.

 

Thanks,

Dave

Good day dswilson

 

Thanks for the reply. Am aware that i can utilize the template from existing projects. Since the initial set up of the project is taking time Due to manual entries.one of the main reason we are trying to use Takeoff to reduce the manual works during estimation and get an accurate takeoff.

Thank you Muhammad. I was just ensuring I read your post correctly and that you weren't creating every entry from an empty starting point. We appreciate the feedback.
