Add you change, add, or remove, the items on your invoice, the gross margin will be adjusted in real time.

Job item costing is available to all users who have the "View and Edit Job Item Costs" permission. You can add a standard cost to any item in your item list, and that standard cost will be prefilled whenever you use that item.
