Add Items to a Cost Catalog from Estimating


To add items to a cost catalog when creating or editing takeoffs or estimates.


The Cost Catalog tool in Procore is where all material information and values, ranging from individual parts to assembled items, are stored. A takeoff extracts quantities from a drawing or model and associates with items in your cost catalog to create estimates. You can add items to your cost catalog when you create or edit takeoffs or estimates.
