Color Swatch (optional) Drop-down box in which a color may be selected to represent the service on the drawing and in printed reports. If the service will only be used as an Add-on that is not visualized on the floor plan (e.g., a labor charge), then the swatch may be left black. Non-black color swatches cannot be shared by any other item in the product list.
Note: If the swatch is left black and the service does not have at least one color line under it with a non-black swatch, it will not be available to assign directly to a room through the Product Selector.
Link Non-interactive icon used to indicate how a service was added to Measure. A icon means the service was created manually in Measure. A icon means the service was imported from a user's RFMS Cloud database or RFMS Store.
Name Text field in which the service's name is entered. If a service is imported from the RFMS Cloud or a user's RFMS Store this field will be filled automatically. Data entered in the Name field will be used as a label for the service within the software and on printed plans and reports.
Style Number (optional) Text field in which a style number may be entered. If a service is imported from the RFMS Cloud or a user's RFMS Store and it has a style number attached to it, this field will be filled automatically. Style Numbers are not displayed in standard plans and reports, though they can be included when printing custom forms.
Vendor (optional) Button that opens a list of vendors saved within the current project. This feature may be used to flag a service as being sourced from a particular vendor. Vendor data is not displayed in standard plans and reports, though it can be included when printing custom forms.
Note: As with all Product List settings, the Vendor list is only saved within the current project unless the Save as Default feature is invoked.
User Waste (optional) Text field in which extra waste may be added to a service. The number entered in this field will add waste on top of whatever natural waste factor Measure calculates.
Type (optional) Drop-down box where the calculation method for extra waste may be specified. The default setting is "%".
%: Additional waste will be generated by adding the number entered in the User Waste field as a percentage of the service's Unboxed Quantity (Unboxed Quantity = net area + natural waste factor).
units: Additional waste will be generated by adding a fixed amount based on the service's unit of sale and the number specified in the User Waste field.
Unit Drop-down box in which the service's unit of sale is specified. In order for tiles to be calculated accurately, they should utilize a square unit of measure.
Cost/Price (optional) Text field in which a cost or price per unit may be entered.
Note: Projects with a Business Type set to "Commercial" will have a Cost column whereas those set to "Retail" will show Price instead.
Level (optional) Drop-down box in which an imported service's price level may be selected.
Services sourced from an RFMS store will be imported into Measure along with all available price levels. These levels can then be adjusted as needed by clicking the drop-down box and selecting one from the list. When a new price level is selected, the software connects to the RFMS store again to import the current price.
If a service created in the RFMS Cloud is to be imported with a price level, the level must be selected during the import process. Only the selected level will be imported with the service.
Note: If an organization has RFMS Mobile and a user within that organization enters a custom price for a service, the Level field will automatically adjust to reflect that. Projects with a Business Type set to Commercial will display "Special PO Cost". Projects set to Retail will display "Write-in".
Taxable (optional) Check-box that controls whether the Tax Rate (entered as a Project Setting) is applied to a service.
Hidden (optional) Check-box used to flag a service as "hidden". Hidden services will be visible in the on-screen drawing and on Room, Seam, and Cut plans if they are used as a primary flooring product or as a perimeter add-on with a color assigned. They will not, however, be shown on the Worksheet or in custom Forms. As such, any service flagged as "hidden" will not factor into the project's grand total.
Add-on Only (optional) Check-box that, if enabled, indicates the service will only be used as an Add-on. A service flagged as "Add-on only" will not be available for direct assignment to a room through the product selector, even if it has a non-black color swatch.
Default Calculation Method (optional) Button used to specify a calculation method that will be assigned to the service automatically when it is used as an add-on. Only services flagged as "Add-on only" can have a default calculation method.
PC (RFMS users only) Text field in which an RFMS product code may be entered. This field will be populated automatically for services imported from RFMS. To successfully export a Measure project to RFMS, Bidpro, etc., a valid product code must be present for each service. Organizations that do not utilize the RFMS core business software or do not export projects from Measure to RFMS can ignore this field.
