    • Templates created for personal use are categorized as "My templates".
    • "Shared Templates" can be created by settings access users, and are available for use by your team
  • To make changes to existing templates, simply click on the pencil icon for editing.
  • You can easily duplicate existing templates to make creating a new template a breeze.

Quick Text

  • QuickTexts function like predictive text, offering suggestions based on saved entries in your QuickText library as you type.
  • Within the Estimate Settings, you can access your QuickText library under Templates. This is where you can manage and create new QuickText templates. Like Estimate Templates, QuickTexts can be personalized, but users with settings access have the ability to share these templates with the entire team.
