  • The general labor dollars with markup is not an assembly like the many of the other items in the template. This is a generic line item with a dollars in and dollars out component. 
  • The price to the customer will be the number of dollars that are entered into this line item plus a % markup.
  • The benefit and use case of this item is to calculate a general markup from the dollars entered. 


Change the General Material Dollars price to the customer

  • The % markup can be change by changing the price of this item. In this case for every $1 added to the project $1.25 will be added to the project.   Then number of cents in the price determines the % markup. Changing the price of this item will change the % markup.

There are no calculations done for labor on the work order with this type of line item.

At $1000 added to this line item will output $1250 for the customer estimate.
