When you click either the [Product] or [Labor] buttons, a form will open that will allow you to create a new Product or Labor Item.



Required Fields


Manufacturer, Model, and Category are required fields, everything else is optional. What fields you fill in for a Product will depend on what the Product is and how you intend to use it SI 2017. For a detailed description of all fields, see Equipment, Speakers, or Wire.



When you add a new Product or a Labor Item in a Project, it does not exist in your Catalog. If you wish to add the new item to your Catalog, use the Update To Catalog feature:
