Uses of Lists

Lists is an application that helps service pros generate accurate, consistent and professional looking cost estimates for jobs commonly performed.

If you are service professional and offer a standard set of services, you can create a reusable List that represents these services and the costs factors associated with each service. When you are ready to create a specific job estimate, create a new List that is a copy of your reusable List, enter the job size and check the services for that job. Lists will automatically calculate the hours of labor required, labor costs and material costs from the job size you entered.

As a final step, Lists can be printed or output to an electronic PDF file which can be emailed or texted to the client.

Lists includes Templates for common trade conractor, service, and maintenance work. These Templates will typically need to be customized to the needs of each business. Customization options are summarized in the remaining sections of this guide.

How Lists Works

Homewyse Lists helps service professionals quickly prepare estimates of time, cost and materials. Lists works best for jobs with costs that vary by size, options and site conditions.

Users create and (re)use Lists that summarize the service and product options they offer for commonly performed projects.

A List is simply an itemized collection of work tasks and materials. Information stored in the List is used to determine the quantities and costs of labor and material, based on the unique size and options for each job.

List users can easily modify, save and create customer ready estimates from these Lists. Because Lists is a web application, all of this can be done from ANY smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop PC - without having to install or maintain standalone applications.

Using Homewyse Lists Templates

We strongly recommend that you start by building your own "Master List" with your common service offerings, cost factors and options. Then, you will create a copy of the Master List for each job you have - reusing your information for maximum consistency and accuracy. Homewyse Lists Templates will help you get started. Some of the most popular templates are listed below:

To create your own List from a Template, click any Template above or:

  1. Sign into Lists and choose the Templates tab.
  2. Browse or enter a search term to locate a Template.
  3. Choose Make a Copy from the options shown to the right of the Template.
  4. Enter a List Name for your copy of the Template.
  5. Enter the List Labor Rate to be used to calculate fully burdened labor costs (wage + overhead + profit) for your List.
  6. Choose Save.

To use a List to generate an estimate:

Homewyse Lists cost estimate generation
  1. Enter a List Quantity value. This will update all Item calculations (Item quantity, hours, and costs) for Items set up to calculate quantities from the List quantity.
  2. Check the checkboxes to indicate a "check" next to Items that you want included in the estimate subtotals and Total (and make sure that Items you don't want in the totals are "unchecked").
  3. Review the value and totals; and make adjustments (see Notes below) as needed
  4. Choose Save.

Notes on customization:

Changing List cost factors

Once a List has been created, there are 3 cost factors that can be applied to ALL Items in the List. These List level cost factors are explained below:

List Labor Rate This factor allows you to: (i) change wages for EVERY EXISTING Item to a new value and/or (ii) set wages for Items that will be added to the List. This is useful when you reuse (or copy) a List based on wages that are out of date. To use this factor:

Homewyse Lists cost estimate generation
  1. Sign into Lists and open the List that you want to change.
  2. Choose Settings located to the right of the List Name.
  3. Enter the new List Labor Rate for your List.
  4. Option: to apply this wage to all Items in the List (and replace all existing Item wages), set the appropriate switch
  5. Choose Save.
Homewyse Lists cost adjustment

Labor adjust This factor allows you to adjust all Labor costs simultaneously without changing Item wages. This can be used to quickly apply discounts or markups to all labor costs in a List.

  1. Sign into Lists and open the List that you want to change.
  2. In the Subtotals area at the screen bottom, select and move the Labor adjustment control to decrease or increase all Labor cost values by the indicated % (IMPORTANT: on smartphones you must select the Labor Cost label in the Subtotals area to display the Labor adjust control - see below). This will change all Item Labor costs (and Labor subtotal) by the same % amount.
  3. Choose Save to store the final Labor adjustment.
  4. Notes:
    • Labor adjust will not change any of the other Item or List cost factors for labor.
    • Set the Labor adjust slider to 0% to return the Labor cost calculations to their uncorrected value.

Material adjust This factor allows you to adjust all Material costs simultaneously without changing Item unit costs. This can be used to quickly apply sales tax, discounts or markups to all material costs in a List.

  1. Sign into Lists and open the List that you want to change
  2. In the Subtotals area at the screen bottom, select and move the Materials adjustment control to decrease or increase the Material cost values by the indicated % (IMPORTANT:on smartphones you will need to first select the Materials label in the Subtotals area to display the Material adjust control). This will change all Item Material costs (and Material subtotal) by the same %.
  3. Choose Save to store the final Material adjustment.
  4. Notes:
    • Material adjust will not change any Item or List cost factors.
    • Set the Material adjust slider to 0% to return the Material cost calculations to their uncorrected value.

Changing Item cost factors

If you need to adjust any values for an Item in your List, it is very important that you verify and then adjust Item values in the following order: Item Quantity > Item Hours > Labor Cost > Material Cost. The factors that adjust these value is explained in following:

Homewyse Lists - Item Quantity editing

Item Quantity This value is used to calculate all other values, so it is important to adjust this value (if you need to change the current value) before changing other values. The Item Quantity is either: (i) set to a specific value that you enter OR (ii) calculated from the List Quantity. If you want to change the Item Quantity:

  1. Open the List that contains the Item that you want to change.
  2. Select the Item Quantity field that you want to change and enter the new value.
  3. To specify that the Item Quantity field remain fixed, set the Recalculate Automatically based on List Quantity switch to OFF (left position).
  4. To specify that the Item Quantity vary in proportion to the List Quantity whenever the List Quantity changes, set the Recalculate Automatically based on List Quantity switch to the ON (right position). NOTE: change the Item-to-List Quantity Ratio if desired, and the Item Quantity will automatically recalculate when the List Quantity changes.
  5. Choose Save.
Homewyse Lists - Labor Hours editing

Labor Hours (Hrs) If you are satisfied with the Item Quantity, but want to change the Item Labor Hours:

  1. Open the List that contains the Item you want to change
  2. Select the Item Hours field that you want to change and enter the new value.
  3. To set Hours > 0, make sure the Enable Labor switch is set ON (right position).
  4. Enter either: (i) the desired hours or (ii) the Quantity Produced Per Hour. When you change either of these, the other factor will be automatically calculated.
  5. Choose Save.
  6. Note: To set hours to 0 (i.e. for a flat-fee Item), set Enable Labor OFF in step 2 above and then choose Save.
Homewyse Lists - Item Labor Cost editing

Labor Cost If you are satisfied with the Item Quantity and Labor Hours, but want to change the Item Labor Cost:

  1. Open the List that contains the Item that you want to change
  2. Select the Item Labor Cost field that you want to change.
  3. Enter either: (i) the Item Labor Cost or (ii) the Hourly Labor Rate. When you change either of these, the other factor will be automatically calculated.
  4. Choose Save.
Homewyse Lists - Material Cost editing

Material Cost Once you are satisfied with the Item Quantity, but want to change the Item Material Cost:

  1. Open the List that contains the Item that you want to change
  2. Select the Item Material Cost field that you want to change.
  3. Enter either: (i) the Item Material Cost or (ii) the Unit Cost. When you change either of these, the other factor will be automatically calculated.
  4. Choose Save.

Reordering List Items

Templates and List Items are typically pre-ordered in the sequence the work is performed. This is usually acceptable, but there are situations where you may want to reorder the Items in a List. This is straightforward, but it is important that you remember to Save the List after you've finished reodering.

To change the Item order (position) of a List:

  1. Open the List to be reordered
  2. Click and hold (mouse input) or Press and hold (touch input) the Item name of the Item to be moved
  3. While holding and moving (dragging) the Item to its new position, a background will highlight the Item being moved and valid location options will "preview" as you pass over those locations
  4. When the Item is shown over the desired location, "drop" (release) the Item
  5. Repeat with other Items as desired
  6. IMPORTANT: Choose Save when you are satisfied with the Item order

Notes

  • You MUST choose Save after the ordering the Items to preserve the new List order when Printing or the next time you open the List

Add Homewyse Items to a List

Fine tuning your List typically involves adding Items to your List. Don't worry - adding Items is simple and easy to understand. First, note that three Item types can be added to a List: a blank Item; a copy of an existing Item; and a Homewyse Library Item. This section explains how to add Homewyse Items (the remaining Item additions are described in next section).

Homewyse Items are predefined Items that represent a majority of the basic tasks and materials found in the calculators at https://www.homewyse.com/services.html. The Library of Homewyse Items contains over 1200 Items covering a wide range of jobs in electrical, plumbing, carpentry and all other service areas. Each Homewyse Item has predefined values for the Item description, basis, labor productivity and unit cost. These values represent typical, average values in the current US market - and can be changed by you as needed. Adding these Homewyse Items to a List is simple:

Homewyse Lists - Adding Library Items
  1. Open the List open the List that you want to add the Item to
  2. Select Library Items from the Add panel (located to the right of your List display).
  3. Locate an Item from the List either by browsing through the List categories or using the Search by keyword(s) option
  4. When you've located an Item you want to add, either: (i) select and move (drag) the Item from the Add panel to your List - and unselect (drop) the Item over your desired List position or (ii) double click the Item to add it to the bottom of your List.
  5. OPTIONS: If you "Drag and Drop", "Dropping" an added Item on top of any existing Item in your List will give you options to Copy Quantity or Replace Item.
    Copy Quantity will copy all Quantity settings from the List Item to the new Item.
    Replace Item will copy all Quantity settings from the List Item to the new Item AND delete the List Item once the new Item is added.
  6. At this point, you can review / change values for the new Item (Name, description, Quantity, Hours, etc).
  7. When you are satisfied with the Item values, choose Save.

Combine Lists - List Importing

When you want to combine separate Lists (such as for painting and trim carpentry) into a single List, one approach is to add individual Item copies from the different Lists into a main List. This Item-by-Item approach can be tedious and time consuming. The Import List feature automates the process of copying and merging entire Lists into a single step:
For the step-by-step instructions below, we assume that you want to combine a List named "ListA" with another List named "ListB" - both of which already exist in your account:

Homewyse Lists - Combining Lists
  1. Choose List Manager followed by the My Lists tab.
  2. Choose Make a Copy next to "ListA"
  3. Give this new List a name (example "ListC") and choose "Save"
  4. Select My Lists from the Add panel (located to the right of your List display).
  5. Locate a List to add either by browsing through the List categories or using the Search by keyword(s) option
  6. When you've located an Item you want to add ("ListB" for this example), either: (i) select and move (drag) ListB from the Add panel to your List - and unselect (drop) it over your desired List position or (ii) double click "ListB" to add it to the bottom of your List.
  7. OPTIONS: If you "Drag and Drop", "Dropping" ListB on top of any existing Item in your List will give you options to Copy Quantity or Replace Item.
    Copy Quantity will copy all Quantity settings from the Item "dropped onto" to the ListB copy.
    Replace Item will copy all Quantity settings from the List Item to the ListB copy AND delete the List Item once the new Item is added.
  8. At this point, you can review / change values for the ListB copy (Name, description, Quantity) and check Items from ListB to be added. You can also set the Add as one Item switch to add only a single summary Item for ListB (rather than all selected Items from ListB).
  9. When you are satisfied with your choices and options for adding ListB, choose Save.
  10. Optional: you can reorder Items and or remove Items to organize the new List to your satisfaction

Combine List Notes

  • ListA and ListB remain unchanged when you use the above process.
  • This can be used with Homewyse Templates and any of your existing Lists.
  • This can be repeated to combine more than 2 Lists.
  • A current Pro Level Subscription is required for this feature.
  • Any imported Items with "automatically" calculated" Item quantities will be calculated using the ListC List quantity; otherwise these Items will be imported with the most recently saved fixed Item Quantity.
  • Items in the new List are copies - and can be fully edited without affecting the originals. Item level calculations (Item Quantity, Item Hours, Item Labor Cost, Item Material Cost) are explained in detail here.
  • If you choose to add a List as a summary Item, you can double click the summary Item name (once created) to re-edit the settings and options from the added List (but only as long as the add List exist in your List Manager).
  • To set a common, consistent wage for all Items in the new List, change the List wage after all merges are completed.

Combined Items

Homewyse Lists - Adding Library Items

A Combined Item is a special Item in one List that is a placeholder for another List or Homewyse Template. A Combined Item is indicated by a "stack" icon located just left of the Combined Item name. Combined Items simplify working with large Lists and make it easy to reuse the Lists or Templates commonly combined into other Lists.

View / Edit To see Combined Item details, double click the name of the Combined Item. Choose Cancel to keep the Combined Item, or change the checked Items, Quantity or settings and choose Save. Choosing Save will remove the original Combined Item your List AND add each checked Item to your List as an individual Item. If you want the selected Items to be merged into a single normal Item (rather than individual Items), set the Add as one Item switch ON before choosing Save.

Homewyse Lists - Adding Library Items

Create To create a Combined Item, choose List Templates or My Lists from the Add dropdown and select any option from the resulting listing to add it to your working List. In the dialog, set the Add as one Item switch ON, but DO NOT CHANGE any Item checkbox settings. Choose Save to create a Combined Item.

Add a www.homewyse.com Calculator to a List

The 1000+ calculators at Homewyse.com combine common options for specific installation tasks (example: Cost to Install a Quartz Countertop). Directly importing these calculators into your List will simplify List building - especially when multiple steps or subprojects are involved (for example: a job may require repair, structural modification, new material installation, and surface finishing - and you will want to include all of these in a single List). To import all the Items from a Homewyse.com calculator into your List:

  1. For any of the calculators at www.homewyse.com/services or www.homewyse.com/maintenance_costs :
  2. Select the calculator of interest from the listing - to open the calculator.
  3. Choose the Edit, Print & Save this in Homewyse Lists button.
