Approximately how many weeks / months are required to create a customized rapid report summary template?
There is no one answer to that question. Most users will start by making small changes (such as changing the default tax rate or changes to the crew mix tab). For major changes, it is usually good practice to make another template that you can work on for the future while you are still using the standard template that comes with the software. How long it takes to customize depends on how many changes you are looking to make and how much time you have to spend making them. Having heavily customized rapid reports for two companies, I can tell you both times the changes were made over the course of months. Generally, I could squeeze 2 to 6 hours a week on working on the new template.
If you are starting with the raw data template, you will want to make sure you have someone with expert knowledge of excel. Expect that kind of customization to take several weeks at a minimum
Thank You! Your answer confirmed all of my suspicions and therefore allows me to schedule my workload, analyze necessities, experiment with the numbers, etc. Customizing the rapid report is a tedious process of trial and error for me - can’t wait
