Go to Workshop > Lookup and select the Add New Job button or  select New Job Card on the main menu

Labour Breakdown.

If an item like Labour is marked as Labour, you can then split it between different employees. Example: Employee 1 could have worked for 30 minutes and employee 2 for 60 minutes.

You can mark labour specifically  as a labour item on the Stock Main Form, under the Additional Info Tab.

The effect of this is that you can divide the work on the job card between different employees. Example: Employee 1 could have worked for 30 minutes and employee 2 for 60 minutes.

You can also keep track of the actual minutes booked and minutes worked.

Add an additional Line:

An Additional line can be added to the job card (right click on the row selector).

Adding a Heading Line could serve as an information line (this could relate to the product/service listed above the line), or could be used as a blank line to distinctively separate various stock groups.



You can manipulate prices by changing the markup % on each line.

The Maximum percentage indicator will change colour should the amount be lower than the allowed percentage. Set it in Workshop Options
