To my dismay, I was told by SP technical that Softlist will only calculate mark up on materials and NOT labor! Well, that was a punch in the gut after spending months setting up costs, sequences, etc. I would like to know if there is a "work around" for this issue. " EX:=(materials+labor) * markup" Perhaps through taxes or some other means.
I want to be able to calculate all materials and labor first for a total, and then calculate a mark up on that total. As it stands today, SP does not give you the set up formulas in the report style options to achieve this calculation. If fact, what they do offer in calculating options is very limited.
The Softlist program is a powerful tool and I am extremely impressed with its accuracy if one takes the time for a properly set it up. I am extremely perplexed as to why SP has developed this program to this degree of accuracy without giving the user adequate means of which to report.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I understand 2018 will not be available until possibly March so
