To use a discount, in your work order:

2) Click 'discount'.

3) Click your discount from the list.

4) The discount will then be applied to your work order.

Notes:

- A discount applies to one specific invoice item rather than the entire invoice.
- You can edit a discount on the fly in the work order.
- You can apply multiple discounts to one item.
- You can also apply different discounts to different items.


To use the new Travel fee calculator:

1)
Go to Profile > 2. Administration > Inspection fees and taxes > Settings.

2) In the Travel fee calculator setup near the bottom of the screen, enter your fee and click 'Save travel fee'.  To allow for round trips, double the amount in your settings. So, if you charge $0.57 for the travel fee one way, set the fee to $1.14. In the example below, we set 1.14 cents per mile/km by entering 1.14. Fig . 3

2) Click 'Travel fee'.

3) Enter the miles/km. 

4) Click 'apply'.

Notes: You can edit the name or amount on the fly.

A typical travel fee might be charged if you have to go more than 100 kilometers.

  • If the map says less than 100 kilometers, there is no travel fee.
  • Sales tax is added to travel fee.
