Catalog Updates??

Recommended Posts

How do you keep up with current catalogs?

With an SSA doesn't Chief check to see if you have the latest catalogs?

How do you know if your catalog is not current?

If you download a catalog does it overwrite duplicate items or does it make a copy??

Or does it ignore duplicate items?

Library>Update Library Catalogs

 

This syncs your local copy with the latest copy on the Chief site.

 

And needs to be done manually. You would think, like every other application, that Chief would automatically check and ask if you want to update, and even notify you when new catalogs are released -- but no.

Alan - .  One caution.  It will install the latest catalogue from the manufacturers.  So if you have plans that have

an older item no longer available it will be lost.

Alan - as a preventive measure before updating libraries you can create a plan materials library for any plan

via the 3D, materials, plan materials menu.  I have only experiences the loss once and if I remember correctly it was

for a tile material.  I managed to get it back thanks to another forum member who had the older library.

That's good info.

I have reused plans for other lots but can't imagine anything that could not be replaced. i.e. not that critical.
