Miscellaneous Items

Details

 

Misc. Items are Items that do not exist in your SI 2017 Catalog. You create them on a per Project basis if you want to add untaxed Items to a Project. These are generally used for things like shipping charges or travel time.

 

These display on SI 2017 reports and are added to the total project number after taxes have been applied to all other items. No tax is applied to Misc. Items.

 

 

When you click the [Misc. Item] button in the New section of the ribbon within the Project Editor, the following form will open:

This means that if you delete/add Products or Labor Items that the Miscellaneous Item will recalculate its value.
