Material

Materials are tangible goods that are purchased, resold, allocated to or consumed on a Job.  The easiest way to determine if something is a material is to think of materials as a quantity of item multiplied by costs.  

Example : 1 Bag of bolts bought @ $3.50/bag

This table shows your Material Base Rate and Default Sell rate for each item.  A Materials Net Cost is set by each and its Billable Rate is by no charge, each, once, hourly, daily, weekly or monthly.

Materials can not be planned or scheduled within QicWorks Job Schedule unless they are entered as a Job Milestone.

Materials can be created from within the Net Cost Table, added from Task and Shift Reports via Ad hoc materials.

Click on   Business   from the main menu, then click on   Settings  .  From the Financial Settings menu click on   Cost Management  .   Then click on   Materials   from the Type menu.
