Export Costing sheet from CCW

As a Presales Consultant one thing I hate to do was costing sheet

Depending on the size of the BOQ, it take hours of work for just one costing sheet. Copying CCW BOQ to Costing template. it’s a boring acctivity.

When started learning Devenet, the first thing which came to my mind was developing a script who does this job. Accidentally when looking in to the CCW I found an option called Custom Template. I thought of trying the custom template, before staring working on a script. spending one day on CCW, I could make a template and with just one click I export the costing sheet from CCW with margin, discounts etc applied.

If you work in a company where you are the one who design BOQ, prepare costing with margin, discounts etc. you can try the below which make ur life easy.
