How do I use On-Screen Takeoff to access/download iSqFt projects?

ConstructConnect has migrated most iSqFt users to their new Project Intelligence platform. For information on sending a project from Project Intelligence/Bid Center to On-Screen Takeoff, see OST - 03.13 Creating Projects from ConstructConnect.com (CCPI and CC Bid Center) using OST-Connect.

Set On-Screen Takeoff as your takeoff solution

After you log into iSqFt's site, click on Administration > Manage My Profile

Click Edit in the "My Profile" section

Under Project Takeoff Preferences, set "Takeoff Projects in:" to "On-Screen Takeoff"

iSqFt Profile

Click Save.

You must have On-Screen Takeoff installed before attempting to open an iSqFt project.

When you are looking at a project in iSqFt, click on the "Documents" tab.

Archived Projects/Files


Attempting to download archived iSqFt images, may cause On-Screen Takeoff to lock up. Archived images show as a red A in the download window (Planroom tab). These plans/images are usually older and have been marked as "Archived" by iSqFt.


The simplest workaround is to download the plans from isqft.com, manually create a bid in On-Screen Takeoff, and then add the downloaded images to the bid. Please note, this is not a problem with iSqFt or On-Screen Takeoff, OST was never designed to access "archived" drawings.
