What is the Budget Estimator?

How It Works

The Budget Estimator uses the device price, labor hours, and quantity input for each element to calculate an estimated installed price range for each element as shown at the top of the element attribute window. The element must have a “Proposed” status. The total for all elements is calculated at the survey level.

The Budget Estimator can be toggled on or off by the Team Admin.

  1. Navigate to your account settings
  2. Under Team select Budget Estimator
  3. Toggle Budget Estimator “On”
  4. Set the Min/Max Budget Range
  5. Click “Save”

These settings are applied universally to the team.

Budget Estimator

The estimated budget range will be displayed within attribute window of each element. The budget range for a specific element is calculated using the Element Quantity, Device Price, and Installation Hours. 

The estimated budget range for the entire survey is displayed by clicking the dollar icon on the survey overview window.

Pro Tip: The estimated budget range for a specific survey can be changed by any team member by navigating to the Survey Info tab and adjusting the minimum and maximum range.
