This page describes the Proposal (Equipment and Labor Price) report in SI 2016.

Accessories and Packages


Proposal reports are the only reports in SI 2016 that will display Accessories with their "parent" Item and they are the only reports that will display Packages with all Items grouped together. If for some reason you don't want to keep Accessories with the parent Item or if you don't want to show Packages in your Proposals, there are Report Settings for these.



This proposal has the following default Report Definitions:
