Estimate Items - Intro

Updated 11 months ago by Jill Bowers

You can track items that need to be replaced, cleaned, or otherwise attended to by adding them as estimate items inside Xactimate. There are various ways to do this, and a great deal of information that you can include with each item. 

The easiest way to add a line item is to use the Quick Entry Pane. We have many articles that can help you orient yourself with this tool, which is important because many of the tasks you complete for estimates will include the Quick Entry pane. 

The following documentation can help you get the most out of Estimate Items.
