COMMON QUESTIONS

How do I change a building's total square footage? 

"Total Floorspace" is obtained from the building's ENERGY STAR® profile. If you want to change the building's size, do so by logging into its ENERGY STAR® account or notifying us of the correct size.

If the building is manual, you can change the floorspace directly in Measurabl on the "Profile" page.

Which internet browsers should I be using? 

Internet Explorer 11, Edge, Chrome, Safari, and Firefox.

 

Why do I need to accept or reject certifications? Aren't they automatically pulled to my site?

Certifications and ratings are automatically pulled to your site through geolocation; sometimes certifications from surrounding buildings are also captured, so we ask for your confirmation to ensure accuracy.

If there's a problem with Utility Sync, how do I fix it? 

Measurabl notifies you via email if there's a problem with Utility Sync. You can also check the status of your accounts at anytime by logging into Measurabl and visiting the Utility Sync page. If you do see a problem, here's a guide on how to fix the most common ones.

My utility accounts in Measurabl were transferred to the current tenants and I no longer have access, what do I do?

In Utility Sync, add these notes in the "Notes for Measurabl" for the utility provider. You will no longer be able to pull in utility data without the provider's username/password.
