Unlocking the advantages of Buildertrend’s To-Do’s

When it comes to efficient project management, Buildertrend’s To-Do’s feature stands apart from traditional punch list software. The benefits are outlined below to give you a clear understanding of the value it adds to your construction project.


Custom templates

Buildertrend is a step above traditional punch list software because it allows the flexibility to tailor design templates for all project requirements. These punch list templates maintain consistency, so that you never forget an item. Plus, save the time it takes to recreate each time from scratch.


Annotated photos

In the building industry, precise communication will save you from a disaster. Buildertrend takes communication to the next level by allowing you to upload and annotate images within your to-do items to provide clearer instructions. Instead of relying on text descriptions, annotated photos leave no room for confusion.


Recurring tasks

Buildertrend’s To-Do’s feature goes a step above manual duplication by allowing you to easily set up recurring weekly, monthly or yearly tasks. This is especially important when it comes to safety checks, inspections or reports.


Automatic updates

Collaboration is fundamental to project success – keep the team seamlessly informed with Buildertrend’s automatic updates. You’ll minimize delays and misunderstandings and enhance efficiency when you automatically updated your team as relevant tasks are created and completed.


Powerful integrations

Traditional punch list software often operates in isolation. One of Buildertrend’s strongest advantages is its integration with other tools such as Excel, QuickBooks, builder’s risk insurance and Outlook add-in. This approach streamlines your construction processes to improve outcomes, enhance collaboration and provide more efficient project management.

Buildertrend To-Do’s is just the start

Clear communication and keeping projects on task is highly important for every construction project. However, there’s so much more to offer beyond To-Do’s. Here are four other features that put Buildertrend above the rest.

Punch list software FAQs

Get answers to the most common punch list software questions.

Construction punch list software is a tool that streamlines the process of creating, tracking and completing project tasks. The document outlines tasks that need to be completed before a construction project is ready for final inspection.

Both checklists and punch lists serve important roles in every construction project. A checklist is a comprehensive list of tasks and requirements that need to be met during different phases of the construction project. A punch list is typically created near the end of the project, and it details what needs to be addressed before the project can be completed.

A construction punch list includes items that need to be completed before the project is handed over to the client. Some punch list examples of items to be completed might be front door alignment, basement bathroom grout, kitchen cabinet hardware, guest bedroom window and exterior paint touch-ups. The punch list will also include a description of what needs to be done.

Creating and managing the punch list for a construction project is a collaborative effort. The list typically falls on the general contractor, subcontractors, architect or designer as well as the client and inspection team.
