How to import a CABINET VISION job

What is the Decore-ative Specialties catalog and export button?

Decore-ative Specialties has partnered with Hexagon to add the Decore-ative Specialties’ wood and DecoForm® door catalogs to CABINET VISION. The wood and DecoForm® door catalogs contain all doors found in our price book. They contain door profiles, materials, and min/max sizes. We have also added a button to export a job to our website to make your ordering experience easier, faster, and more accurate. The combination of the catalog and job export will decrease the amount of time it takes to place an order while increasing accuracy and efficiency
