    • Draw Schedule + Transactions (XLSX) which includes the following categories in a spreadsheet format:

      • Change Log (changes tracked)

Download the Client-facing Budget:

  • First, make sure to turn on client-facing, budget tracking (i.e., External Budget):

    • To enable External Budget, go to:

      • Jobs > Choose Job > Edit button > Enable External Budget toggle

  • This is useful if you'd like your client to only see their budget (External Budget) + bank reimbursements on the job (Drawn-to-Date).

  • The Clients-side, External Budget can be downloaded on the Draws tab:

    1. Jobs > Choose Job > Click Draws tab > Choose Draw > Click Export Draw button
