Project Organization and Shopping


If you're working on a project, you know how important it is to keep everything organized. With the Project Toolbar, you can easily select, copy, move, delete, add to cart, and group your items. In this guide, we'll go through each button on the toolbar and how to use them effectively. 

  • The Select All button allows you to select all groups and items in your Project with one click, to quickly add to cart or delete.  
  • The Copy button allows you to copy selected items and "paste" them to different groups or other projects
  • The Move button allows you to move selected items to different groups or other projects, removing them from their current location
  • The Delete button will quickly bulk delete any selected items, any groups you select and the items in that group.  
  • The Add to Cart button allows you to quickly select any items or groups of items and add them all to cart with one click.

Purchased Items

When you are working on a home improvement project, it can be easy to lose track of all the different orders you have placed. By keeping all your orders linked together with your Project, you can easily keep track of what has been purchased, easily access tracking, returns and reordering, and keep track of your project total spending. 

How to Add an Order

While orders will automatically link when you place them directly from your Project, you can link orders after not originally associate them together. If the items from your order were already saved to your project, those items will be marked as purchased. If the items from your order were not in your project, they will be added to the end of your items and marked as purchased. 

  1. Navigate to the Project Management Tools section on the right-hand side of your project. 
  2. Under the Orders section, click on Add Orders
  3. All your orders will be available, with the most recent shown first. Click Add Order to associate to this project.

Order Details Quick Options

Once you have added an order to your project, you can view the details of that order and access quick order actions from either the View Orders section of the Project Management Tools, or by clicking Order Details directly from the product tile of your purchased item. The following quick options are available:

  • The Tracking button will take you to the tracking page for that order
  • The Set up Return button will take you to start a return for the items for that order
  • The Order Again button will allow you to quickly add items from that order to cart to purchase again.
