Units of Measure

Units of measure in Join are used to track and display unit costs (e.g. $/GSF, $/Classroom)

Use units of measure to track the changes of key metrics as a project progresses and to see the cost per unit of these key metrics. In this article, you’ll learn how to enable units of measure, how to enter quantities, and how these key metrics are used throughout Join.

Enabling Units of Measure

From the Settings Tab

To enable the units of measure from the Settings tab, follow the steps below:

  1. Click on the Settings tab in the top navigation bar
  2. Scroll down to the Units of Measure section and click the Manage Units of Measure button
  3. Select the check box for each unit of measure to be enabled
  4. Click the Save button

From the Milestone Metrics Tab

Tip: Join has several of the common units of measure built-in, but you can create custom units of measure by using the + New Unit button.

Entering Quantities for Each Unit of Measure

To enter quantities for each unit of measure, follow the steps below:

  1. Navigate to a Milestone and click on the Metrics tab
  2. Enter the quantities for each unit of measure

Note: The quantities entered for each unit of measure are specific to each Milestone and can change as the project progresses through preconstruction.
