Adding Up-Charges allows you to add additional costs to Measure Sheet Items and their Price Guide Options.
Available in: Leap Premium and Leap Enterprise onlyFor example: Say you have a customer who wants a window with a base price of $500. You may want your user to be able to add on additional costs to that window such as grids or triple-pane glass. Leap allows you to present your users with a screen that shows them only the up-charges.
- To add a new up-charge, click the symbol and select New under Up-Charges.
- Enter the up-charge information in the newly created up-charge section, which is identified by the light pink color on the left hand side as shown below.

|Identifier||Used to link the upcharge to a contract or proposal. See Contract Linking. Note: Identifier is not active by default. See Active Columns to enable this.|
|Calculate as % of Parent||When turned on, the price of this accessory will be calculated by multiplying the value in the “Total” cell by the price of the Price Guide Item to which this accessory is added.For example, consider the case of a Price Guide Item of $500 and an accessory that has a “Total” of 0.15. If this accessory has the “Calculate as % of Parent” turned on, leap will use 75 (500 x 0.15) as the “Total” cost of this accessory.|
|Price||–||The price for each office in your organization. Each office has two columns for price. A shared price and a unique price.|
|Shared Price||–||Changing this price will change it across any items this upcharge is copied to. When calculating a price for this item, Leap will first check if there is a unique price (the column to the right of this one). If there is a unique price it will use it for it’s total. If there is NOT a unique price, it will use this price (the shared price) for it’s total. Using shared pricing is recommended as it allows you to change prices across multiple items at once.|
Copy Up-ChargesIn your Price Guide you often will find that up-charges are the same across multiple Measure Sheet Items. Leap allows you to copy up-charges from one Measure Sheet Item to another. Doing this will allow you to share one set of up-charges across many Measure Sheet Items. If you utilize the shared pricing, it will allow you to change the price once and have that propagate to all of the other matching up-charges that have been copied to other Measure Sheet Items. To copy up-charges from one Measure Sheet Item to another:
- Check the up-charge(s) you want to copy under the button.
- Click the button on the Measure Sheet Item you want to copy to and click Paste New or Paste Copy under up-charges.
- Paste New
- Creates a new up-charge with the same information as the copied up-charge on the Measure Sheet Item. Any edits made to this copy will not change the values on the original up-charge.
- Paste Copy
- Creates an exact copy of the original up-charge on the Measure Sheet Item. Any edits made to this copy will also change the values on the original up-charge.
To copy up-charges from one item to several other items use Mass Copy under Tools.
