- [Instructor] In this video I want to talk about some…strategies to help speed up data entry.…What I'm looking at here is a schedule of…all the rooms in my condominium building.…So the building is three stories tall…and if I scroll through here you could see…that on level one I have 34 rooms.…And scroll down a little bit further,…I've got 67 rooms there on level two.…And another 67 rooms on level three…for a total of 168 rooms across the entire building.…Now this is just a three story building…and you can imagine that on a bigger project…we would have potentially hundreds more rooms.…
Now what I want to do is fill in the floor finish,…base finish, wall, and ceiling finish…for all of these different spaces.…And as you can imagine if I had to do that…individually and manually for every one…of those fields, I would be here for quite some time.…So we're going to look at some techniques…to help speed that up.…And one of the techniques we're going to use…is something called a key schedule.…So let's start with some basic data entry first, okay?…
