Help: My Lists

How to:


  • My Lists provides the ability for users to create lists of products that can be used for quick for pricing, re-order or job work.
  • Lists display current price and availability.
  • Anywhere on the site where there is an "Add to Cart" button, there is an "Add to List" button to add the product to a new or existing list.
  • Lists can be private to a single user or shared to other users or everyone in your organization.

Lists are a great way to organize products for:

  • Stock items: Lists can be created for the items in your stockroom. You can drag and drop items in the list to create the same order as the rows, shelves and bins in your stockroom. Simply walk the isle of your stockroom, adding items with low quantities from your list to your cart.
  • Materials: Lists are good for organizing groups of material. Add all the 1 inch copper fittings and pipe to a "1 Inch Copper" list to quickly access those products.
  • Job Work: Create lists for the jobs you do most often like boiler or mini-split installations. Add the equipment and all the accessories to the job list with default quantities. The list will provide total price of the materials which can provide a quick estimate of the job. Add the list to the cart and adjust quantities for the specific job, your list will still be ready for the next job.

Sharing Lists

When you create a list, it is private to you as a user. You have the ability to share your list with others or give access to others to your list. What's the difference?

  • Sharing a list: When you share a list you are essentially creating a copy of your list and sending a link to the copy to someone else by email. When that person clicks the link they see the copy of the list and have the option to save the list to their own list IF they have a login. Without a login the list cannot be saved and will not and cannot show price or availability.
  • Allow Others to View or Edit: You can give others direct access to your list allowing them to view only or edit the list. You can give access to everyone in your company or to specific people via email.

How to share a list:

  1. Access the list you wish to share. 
  2. Click the "Share" button at the top of the page

  3. On the "Share List" popup, select "Send copy" and click the "Next" button.
