  2. Click the folder for the job you want to apply these costs too. This will display the list of phases.
  3. Click the folder for the phrase you want. This will display the list of cost codes if there are cost codes associated with the phase you selected.
  4. Click the cost code you want to select, if necessary. This will close the list of jobs and select that particular job, phase, and cost code.

Purchases of stock and assembly items cannot be applied to a job. These types of inventory items are applied to a job using Inventory Adjustments or Sales Invoicing.

Next, we will review how to enter customer sales invoices and payroll hours into a job.
