I'm trying to limit my reps abilities to manipulate the cost column when generating an estimate. Because the price rate is calculated using the cost and the markup, I'm unable to just hide the cost without losing the price on the estimate. Is there a way to lock down the costs that are in our item list from being manipulated on an estimate and only allow the reps to change the markup to affect price?
