The Advanced Duct version 4.1.2 makes available Data File Markups. These factors allow users to build in additional markup (%) that will be applied prior to the materials being used in Takeoff.
I. Inputting Data File Markups
Navigate to Central Data and expand Setups
Click on the Data File folder
Open any component folder
Click Edit on the component and there is a new Markup field available
II. Validating the Markup in Takeoff
Select an item that will be using the component you adjusted
Expand the Material Cost in Item Details
Notice the Material Cost is increased/decreased based on the value you entered
III. Special Note
The markup percent will not be shown to the users and will not report separately. The Data File Markups are hidden.
