Learn how to hide, filter, delete, and restore estimates and jobs in Buildxact, helping you stay organized and on top of your job management.

Hiding/Filtering Estimates

When you click on Estimates in the left-hand menu, you'll see a side menu with different statuses related to your estimates. You can easily filter your view by selecting and deselecting the types you're interested in.

  1. To update the status of an estimate, open it and click on the dropdown arrow to the right of the estimate name. Select the status you want to apply.

Hiding/Filtering Jobs

Once a job is completed in Buildxact (that is, when the schedule shows 100%), it will appear in the Completed section of the jobs tab. If you want to hide these completed jobs, simply deselect "Completed" in this tab.

In the instance a completed job still appears in other job lists (e.g., In Progress, Not Started), check that the schedule shows 100% completion. If needed, follow these steps to inform Buildxact that the job is completed:

  1. Open the job in Buildxact.

  2. Navigate to the Job Schedule page.

  3. Click on "More Actions".

  4. Select "Mark job as completed."

How to delete or restore an Estimate or Job

To delete an estimate or job, click the trash can icon in the respective section.

Buildxact does not permanently delete an estimate or job; instead, we hide them from view. If you need to restore any deleted estimates or jobs, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the main Estimates or Jobs page.

  2. Click the settings option.

  3. Select "Deleted items."

  4. From here, you can restore as required.
