Step 4: Next, select the template (if any) that you would like to use with this proposal

Note: Once you have selected your template, the proposal will automatically populate with the details of your measurement report.

Step 5: Next, click “Edit Option” to finalize the line item data that has been pre-populated, like unit cost, quantity, and tax, and then add in the applicable waste factor for each item**.

Note: If you want to add more items to this proposal click the “Add item” button and select the item(s) pre-populated from your catalog. You will also need to enter the quantity, and waste for the newly entered item(s).
