Set the Plan Scale for Project Plans in Esticom

Objective

To set the Plan Scale for uploaded project plans in Esticom.

Background

By default, new projects in Esticom do not have the Plan Scale configured. Setting up the Plan Scale after uploading plans is crucial, since it determines the measurement between the plan and actual project. When configuring Plan Scale for uploaded plans, you can choose to use common scales or set the scale manually.

Things to Consider

Steps

  1. After uploading plans on the Plans tab, click Next.
    Note: You can also click the Take-Off tab from anywhere in the project.
