By clicking the edit link, you can open the BOQ in a Google Spreadsheet and easily make changes in the same sheet.
You can add all the material items which will be required for the project one by one simply by clicking the dropdown arrow in the Material Item column.
The codes of the material item will be assigned when you select the item. You can select the task for which the material is required for by clicking the dropdown arrow in the task column. Then enter the quantity of each material required.
After entering the material information, you have to decide the budget price of each material.
