Items that have associated labor will get removed with that item on change orders. So how do you separate the two if you want to charge your customer for the labor but no longer want to charge for the item? And you don’t want the Change Order to read a new labor line when presented to the customer? .

Follow these steps:

  1. Create a Change Order and remove the item with the associated labor.
  2. Add in a labor line item with the labor amount you want – this should be the labor amount that was associated with the original item, so it matches.
  3. Make that labor line item an accessory under the original item you are removing by clicking the blue dot next to the line item in designer > move the line item under a different line by moving up or down, so it is nested under the item > make accessory.
  4. Make the labor line accessory hidden by clicking on the labor line item in the designer and checking the “hidden” box under the details tab. This will allow the labor amount to be included in the change order but will not show up as a line item on the report when presented to the customer.
