Mark Project as Approved


Change Order functionality does not become active until you approve a Project. To approve a Project, make sure the Project is checked-out to you and then click the [Mark Project as Approved] button in the ribbon of the Project Explorer:

The Status of the Project will default to the first Status in your list that has its State set to "Won".


When a Project is marked as approved, the following things happen:


All items are marked as approved and price fields are locked

The Unit Price, Margin, Markup, Phase, and Labor Hours fields will not be editable.


All Optional and Alternate Items are removed from the Project


A Revision will be created

In addition to a Revision being created, the ability to manually create Revisions will be disabled.


A checkmark will display in the "Approved" column in the Project Explorer:

If you change your mind, you can mark a Project as unapproved via the following button:
