Summary: Tapping the "Capture Data from RoofSnap" switch disconnects your estimate from your project's measurements and allows you to customize quantities that are usually tied directly to measurements.
When building an estimate, some users may find it necessary to adjust the quantity of certain estimate items. (Examples include: rounding material up to an orderable quantity, ordering additional flashing for custom installs, etc.)
Many estimate item quantities in RoofSnap are automatically calculated from your project's measurements and cannot be edited without disconnecting the estimate from the measurement data. The "Capture Data from RoofSnap" switch allows users to make necessary adjustments to those estimate items normally defined by measurement data.
The Capture Data from RoofSnap Switch in the "on" position on the iOS Estimate Screen.
The switch is turned on by default, tapping it will disconnect the estimate from your project's measurements. You'll be shown the warning below. Tap "OK" to proceed.
The warning dialogue is shown when the switch is turned off.
While the estimate is disconnected from your project's measurements, you can edit item quantities that were previously unavailable. The plus/minus button to the left of the line item cost will be blue (see below). Press the plus/minus button to edit the item's quantity.
While disconnected from project measurement data, all quantities are editable.
After making your desired adjustments to your estimate, you can generate the estimate document or generate a contract.
Note: If you make changes to the project's measurements, you may want to reconnect your measurement data to reflect those changes. You will have to disconnect again to make manual adjustments.
Tapping the "Capture Data from RoofSnap" switch again will re-establish the connection between your project's measurements and your estimate items. This will cause the estimate item quantities to revert to their original values or update if changes have been made to the project's measurements.
Turning the "Capture Data" switch back on yields the above warning.
