Assigning Price List In Material / Labour Mode Jobs


While a Job is in Material/Labour mode, you can transfer information into the Job from a Price List.

To do this the Price List must also be in Material/Labour mode.

To convert a Price List to Material/Labour mode, do the following:

1. Select the Price List tab on the Job Manager screen.

2. Right-click on the appropriate Price List, and select Convert - To Material/Labour.

This will create a copy of the Price List in material labour mode that can use in the material labour Jobs.

To then transfer information into the Job from the Price List, do the following:

1. Open the Job you wish to transfer the information into.

2. Click the Price List button on the Insert section on the toolbar.

3. Select the information in the Price List you wish to transfer into the Job.

4. Click the Insert button to insert the entire line into the Job, or add rate to only transfer the rate into the Job.

Once you have done this the selected information will be transferred into the Job. You can repeat this process as required.

  • Hi Isiah,

    A Material/Labour Estimate displays divides your estimate into two sections, one for material
    costs and the other for labour costs.
    The material costs can be constructed with a Rate Sheet, however the Labour costs can only be built from the Estimate.

    I hope this helps to clear things up.
    I would also highly recommend having a look at the additional information about this in the users guide under Estimate Configuration on page 107.

  • Hi Hang,

    There could be a few reasons why the job is not updating with the new details from the price list.
    If you instructions you have used are from the article titled "Updating Job with the changes in the price list items", then the job should be able to update unless the link to the job has been broken somehow.
    We would need to take a look at the trouble more directly to try and determine the trouble here.

    In regards to the material and labour totals, these should already appear on the trade summary report, however, if this is not the case for you then we would need to take a look at what is happening for you.

    I would recommend raising a support ticket for any issues you may have so that we can look at the trouble in more depth with you.
