Using Jobs and Work Type Codes to Control Job Costs and Prices in Microsoft Dynamics NAV or Business Central
In Microsoft Dynamics NAV or Business Central, you can use work type codes to control your job costs and prices. On the Resources card, you can have a general rate for the resource, but for the work type, you can control the rate based on a state they work in or the type of work they do or other variation. The same holds true to price for setup. The one difference between Price and Cost is that, for Cost you can make changes based on a new fixed cost or you can get into added dollars or added %. When you use the work types on the job planning lines, this will affect your budget/expected cost. H2: Setup
- Edit or Create a New Resources that you use on a Job
On the Home Tab or Navigation Tab you will see “Cost” and “Prices”
