On-Screen Takeoff Connect 2020.23.0 Release Notes


OST Connect Utility added 

DocViewer in Bid Center or Construct Connect Project Intelligence has a new option to send documents to On-Screen Takeoff from the Actions menu. 

  • Open With > On-Screen Takeoff 



  • Send to On-Screen Takeoff Window 

    • A window appears to tell you what is needed to run the OST Connect utility.  
      1. You need On-Screen Takeoff (of course) 
      2. You need to download the OST Connect MSI the first time 
      3. Click “I have On-Screen Takeoff, Send Project Now” to send. 


Note: The OST Connect download only needs to be installed once. After the initial install, the “I have On-Screen Takeoff, Send Project Now” button installs any updates necessary for future feature enhancements. 


  • Authorization for using OST-Connect 

    • You must verify a subscription to Bid Center/CCPI to utilize the OST-Connect utility. 
    • This is the same email and password used to sign on to Bid Center or CCPI on www.constructconnect.com 


  • Document Download 

    • Documents are downloaded once sent to On-Screen Takeoff and the Bid is prepared in the background. 



  • Newly created bid matches name and structure of Project 

    • The Bid created in On-Screen Takeoff uses the same folder structure and name as the Project that is in Bid Center.
