Edit Billable Costs

Edit Billable Costs

The Edit Billable Costs has been designed to compare and edit your Actual and Billable values for each item, before they are invoiced. 

Users with Manager permission and above are able to edit the items quantity and rates. All changes then update the Actual and Billable Cost Reports, as well as the Load Items panel within Invoicing.  These changes do not change the original time record ie Timesheets, Timeclock and Shift Reports are not updated.

Purchase orders or expenses can not be edited from within Edit Billable Costs, instead they need to be edited within the original document.
The values used within the Edit Billable Costs come from the Actual and Billlable Cost Reports.
Click on  Job  from the main menu, then click on  Job Management . To view a particular job simply click on the Job Number from within the Job Management Table. Click on Financial  from the Navigation menu and then click on Edit Billable Costs from the Cost Management menu.
