It would be nice if you could set the labor cost and labor sell price for each Takeoff/Estimate. Currently I can update Overhead/Profit by Cost Type to set the labor cost markup per line item but I can not set the hourly sell price. I have to adjust the labor markup % to get close to contracted labor sell prices and I can not set the exact price. I may be missing something but I have been unable to find the solution.


  • This is my biggest complaint about using the estimating module. Others in our office wont use the estimating and they use an excel spreadsheet instead since they can set the cost and sell prices. It should be an option so that we don't have to calculate the markup percentage for each sell rate. We will likely discontinue using the estimating module since there is no interest by Sage to make this change. It should have already been an available option.
