I cant find a single report that will present all costs associated with a job - time, expenses (i.e. items etc) and mileage. Is there such a thing, or can someone advise on how to create one? Thank you.
QuickBooks Desktop's reports are great for seeing the information you'd like. I can appreciate wanting to see all the information in one single report, but when that's not possible, using multiple reports is the way to go.
For all the available job-related reports, I recommend looking at the Jobs, Time & Mileage section of the Report Centre. Something like the Job Profitability Detail report may be of use to you as it shows "what activities have generated the most (and least) profit?" While it may not seem to be quite what you're looking for, it may still help you find what you're seeing.
Otherwise, I recommend running separate reports to see what you can find. Here are a couple of articles that may help.
I'll apologize in advance if these are just "Mickey Mouse" questions -
no, i wanted to run the total costs for a job for one of my PMs to review. i had already done as you suggested, cutting and pasting, but it took more time than i would have liked, especially if i have to do it for more than one job! Thanks anyway!
I hear what you're saying. I recommend leaving feedback for our product developers by going to the Help menu and choosing Send Feedback Online. The Product Suggestion option is great for letting us know what we can do to enhance the program.
