If you have the Plus, Pro, or Design Build version of IntelliBid, you may have noticed a small “Camera” button on both the Jobs and the Takeoff toolbar. When you click on it, an empty window pops up. This button activates the JobVue feature which lets you view digital photos of your job site.
Let’s say you’re doing a walk-through of an area that is going to be remodeled. You probably bring a pad of paper and make quick sketches of areas you’ll want to look at later while you’re estimating the job. When you’re ready to begin the estimate, you grab your sketch pad and try to decipher what you drew.
Next time, leave the pad back at the office and bring a digital camera or mobile phone with you to the walk through. Take as many pictures of the job conditions as you like.
You can keep this dialog open while you work on takeoff or any other screens in IntelliBid. When you are done with the viewer, close it by clicking the Windows Close button in the upper right-hand corner.
