This section lists your default preferences for Misc Parts, Equipment +/-, and Pricing Default from the Setup tab within the Navigator.
Equipment +/- (%) – This is a percentage that will be added to all non-labor Products (Products not assigned to the Category “Labor”) in a Project based on the Unit Price of the Product. This number can be positive or negative. This setting can be overridden on a per Phase basis.
Misc Parts (%) - This is a percentage that will be added to all non-labor Products (Products not assigned to the Category “Labor”) in a Project based on the Unit Price of the Product. This setting can be overridden on a per Phase basis.
Pricing Default: Sets your default selling price. The default names for these levels are “A”, “B” and “C”. These names may be changed to suit your business requirements.
When you select a Phase from the dropdown list, you will see the default values that you have set for that Phase in your Setup tab.
See the Setup tab for information regarding the "Show 'Head End' Dialog for Wires" and "Ignore labor calculations for this phase" options.
[Save Phase] will save any changes made to the selected Phase's settings. This will NOT update your default settings in the Setup tab.
[Save Default] will update your default settings in the Setup tab with changes you have made to the Phase within this project. Generally you would not make changes to your defaults here, but rather on the Setup tab.
[Restore Default] this does the opposite of the [Save Default] function, i.e. it replaces the selected Phase's values in the Project with your default settings from the Setup tab.
[Add Phase] use this option if you have added or renamed Phases in your Default setting after a Project has been created
In this example, you want to add the Phase “Warranty Service” to an existing Project and rename the “Rough-In” phase to match changes you've made to your global settings in the Setup tab.
Open the Project and then select D-Tools->Options
