Additional Costs are any fees/costs that are not standard on every quote, but are added on an as needed basis. Examples of these charges are Pet Fees, De-Iceing Fees, Hangar, etc. Additional costs allow for the price of the item to be adjusted on each individual quote.
To create an Additional Cost:
From the trips list, click on the settings sprocket in the menu on the left and select Additional Costs at the bottom of the list.
Click on "Create Additional Cost" in the upper right corner of the screen.
Give the new cost a name.
Additional Cost Names MUST use a "_" in place of a space. For example, Pet Fees would be Pet_Fees.
Select the Price Component Type from the drop down list.
The "Price Component Type" is where you will enter the cost of the item so that will show on the quote. The "Cost Component Type" is where you will enter the amount the item/service will cost the operator. This box helps the system calculate profit margin.
*If the component type does not exist, contact your administrator. *
Click "Save" to add the additional cost.
The new cost will appear in the Additional Costs list. It will now be available as an option when you create a quote.
