Congratulations on choosing On Center Oasis Takeoff™ for your plan viewing and takeoff needs. 

Getting Started

Review the Release Notes for Oasis Takeoff.

Take a little time to familiarize yourself with the product (and install it, if necessary).  This User Guide is laid out in a way that allows you to get to work creating a simple Project, then builds on that with advanced concepts and features. Many articles include videos so you can see a real-world application of how a feature/function works!  Like this one...

Click the Full Screen button  in the video player to expand it for easier viewing.

Other Hyperlinks

In many articles, there may be links to other, relevant articles or even external Websites.  These links typically open in a new window - be sure your Internet browser allows Pop Ups from any site within oncenter.com.

Common Questions

The Help Menu:


Opens this User Guide.

Training Videos

Allows you to browse and watch Training Videos for your product.  Feature videos are embedded in relevant articles, training videos typically open a new page.

Request Support

If you run into something you don't understand or have difficulties installing, launching, or running the application, click Request Support to open a Support Case and contact our Support Group.  One of our professional technical support representatives will be happy to assist you.

Request a Feature

You may be asking yourself: "Can I provide feedback about this product?  Can I suggest new features/functionality?"

We welcome it!  If you have a suggestion about a feature or change you'd like to see in the program, click Help > Request Feature and fill out the online form.

On Center cannot personally respond to every Feature Request we receive, although every Feature Request is reviewed and cataloged even if it is not implemented.  On Center does not provide updates on when a feature may be included in an update so be sure to check the Release Notes to find out what we've added/fixed/changed.

How Do I?

If you have a question for our Training department such as an estimating question or how to use a particular feature such as Typical Area, Multi-User Takeoff, or the Summary/Worksheet Tabs, click Help > How Do I...?   One of our industry professional trainers will respond just as quickly as they can.

A word about printing...

Although you can print the articles in this User Guide, we encourage you not to.  First, Mother Nature will thank you for sparing a tree, but more important, this information is subject to change and if you print an article, you may be referencing out-dated information.  Create a Favorite to this user guide in your preferred Web browser for quick access instead (or click the "?" in the application to launch this user guide).  See OTK - 01 Printing - Overview for information on printing Projects.

Previous & Next Article Links

At the bottom of each User Guide article are links to the next logical article - this allows you to 'page' through the user guide, moving from one article to the next.  To return to the previous article, just click the Back button in your browser, or click one of the 'breadcrumbs' at the top of the page.  These links open in the current window.
