CRM capabilities Unlike most free construction estimate templates, monday.com won’t leave you stuck with only one functionality of your project — use our template to manage client details and add updates along the way. Custom Status Columns Our Status Column is most-loved because it’s multi-purpose — choose different colors and add custom text to indicate anything from priority and project type to completion stage.
