The Stoplight: Status, At-A-Glance

Time is one of the most sought-after commodities in the construction industry - we know, every second counts. A key element to maximizing time is found in ensuring efficient, effective communication. The need to quickly and easily communicate the status of critical project details to your team is something you struggle with every day, which is why UDA Technologies developed the handy-dandy Stoplight Marker now found in ConstructionOnline's Schedules and Estimates

With the familiar Red-Yellow-Green options available, you can convey the status of a Scheduled Task or Estimate Line Item in only two clicks. Consider it a flag for items that need attention, acknowledgement of a delay in processing, or simply confirmation of a job well done - UDA allows for you to define the specific connotation within your company. The Stoplight Marker can be found in the first column of your ConstructionOnline Schedules and Estimates, for easy access and even easier updating. It really is the little things that make the biggest differences. Ready? Set. Go!
