Creating an estimate

In addition to creating an actual permit, you can also create an estimate in the SmartGov permitting module. This allows you to supply potential applicants with permit information before they submit their actual application. *Note: The options displayed on an estimate are based on the configuration of the permit type selected. These options are not configurable on an estimate.

How to Create an Estimate

  1. Click on Permitting from the navigation menu.
  2. Click on Create Estimate.
  3. Select a Department from the drop-down menu.
  4. Begin typing or click the magnifying glass icon () to view and select a Permit Type.
  5. Begin typing or click the magnifying glass icon () to view and select a Parcel Address. *Note: This will automatically populate the Parcel and Applicant fields.
  6. Check the Fast Track box if your jurisdiction is using SmartGov to track expedited permit applications.
  7. Click the Create button to submit your permit estimate.

 

 

Permit Estimate Tabs

Once you enter the initial information, you will be taken to the full permit estimate. The permit type template determines the tabs that display and the order in which they display. There can be up to 16 tabs displayed for any given permit type, but two will always be visible: Main and Notes.
