Tips

  • You can bulk import Materials in .csv format – go to Settings > Materials & Services > Bulk Import.
  • When integrated with your accounting package materials will be imported automatically, and will be automatically added to your accounting package with synced invoices.
  • You can edit material costs on a job-by-job basis, without affecting other jobs or the 'master' material.
