Customize your Material List template with ABC Supply products and place material orders all within the Hover platform.

Updated this week

Customize your Material List templates with ABC Supply products and place material orders directly with ABC Supply, without ever having to leave the Hover platform.

For best results, we recommend completing the set-up steps in this order:

  • Connect your Hover account to your supplier (ABC)

  • Fill out the supplier default branch form

  • Once connection is confirmed by Hover support, live-search ABC products and save as template for future jobs

Material List - ABC Supply

Watch this 3 minute video to learn how to create a material list, or continue reading below for an overview of how the process works.

Click the expand arrows to reveal more or collapse information.

Before getting started


  • First, connect your ABC and Hover accounts as illustrated in this article.

  • Then, fill out this Supplier Default Branch form if you haven't already done so.

    • The Hover Customer Support team will use the submitted information to connect to your preferred branch and notify you by email once completed.

      • This typically occurs within (1) business day

You can also access this form in your account by following these steps:

  • Log-in to your Hover account from a desktop browser (hover.to)

  • Click Material List from the property details page

  • Click Order Materials

    • This will initiate a prompt to connect a supplier account

    • Click Get started

Create a custom material list


Once Customer Support has confirmed your org is connected to ABC Supply, the product search functionality for your material lists will display products exclusively from ABC Supply and its available branches.

When you create a material list for a job, it will load with a generic list of items. To customize your material list:

Update each line item to the specific ABC Supply product:

  • Click into the line item

  • Search for products by name or by the ABC SKU item - you can also search by the manufacturer's name

  • Select a product color or variation, and edit any additional details (such as the material line item coverage, waste, etc.)

  • For additional information on customizing your material list, refer here.

Are you not seeing the ABC Supply product SKUs?

  • If you're not seeing ABC's products when searching by name or by the SKU number, it's likely that you either skipped filling out the form or haven't finished connecting your Hover account to your supplier, as shown in this article.

Note: You can save your customized template for future use so you don't have to map line items to your supplier's products every time!

Review and submit your material order


Once all your line items of the material list are mapped with the ABC Supply catalog, you are then able to order directly from your branch by submitting the order digitally.

  • Click Order Materials at the bottom of the page

  • Review and edit line items from the Order Details page

  • Click Continue to billing and delivery

    • Enter your purchase order number

    • Choose the delivery method

    • Click Submit Order

Within the material list, a purchase order # will appear for each item you’ve previously ordered. By clicking on the purchase order number link, you can access the order confirmation details page.

Your order will show as "pending" until ABC Supply approves it.

Once the PO is approved, clicking the order ID number will redirect you to the purchase order in the ABC Supply order portals page.

Tips on editing order details:

  1. If a unit cost is not listed, it's because the ABC Supply branch does not have the unit cost listed on their end

    1. Contact your ABC Supply OSR for that information

  2. If the unit of measurement from our standard template doesn't match what ABC Supply has on hand, you'll see a warning message along with the exact unit of measurement it should be
