How to calculate the total square footage (quantity in square feet) for invoice items of multiple dimensions Invoice/Quote

Paladin provides two calculators for line items that are sold in different lengths or by the square foot.  

  • The Footage Calculator calculates the line item quantity in feet for one or more pieces of different lengths. Use this calculator for items that you sell by the foot, such as wire and metal roofing.
    Example:

    • If you enter these lengths and piece quantities:
      • 2 piece @  1 foot, 6 inches (1.5 feet)
      • 1 piece @ 6 feet
    • Then, the line item quantity is set to (2 x 1.5) + (1 x 6) = 9 (feet)
  • The Square Footage Calculator calculates the line item quantity in square feet for one or more pieces of length/width dimensions. Use this calculator for items that you sell by the square foot, such as flooring.
    Example:

    • If you enter these lengths and piece quantities:
      • 2 piece @ 1 foot, 6 inches x 2 feet (3 sq ft)
      • 1 piece @ 24 inches x 24 inches  (4 sq ft)  
    • Then, the line item quantity is set to (2 x 3) + (1 x 4 )  =  10 (square feet)
