Manage estimate statuses

Estimate statuses indicate the level of completion of estimate items. By using estimate statuses, you can quickly view the situation of each estimating job. You can also color-code the material items in an IFC model in Trimble Connect for Windows according to their estimate statuses. Tekla EPM contains four preloaded status indicators, but you can modify the list of statuses according to your needs: you can add, modify, deactivate, and delete estimate statuses.

  1. Click the Maintenance ribbon tab.
  2. On the menu, select Estimating Maintenance > Estimate Status Maintenance.
  3. In the Estimate Status Maintenance dialog box, do any of the following:
