Skip Navigation LinksNavigation > In Line Entries

There are places throughout the application where you are viewing lists of line items much the same as a standard "To Do" list. It can be a list of materials in an estimate, a list of tasks on a work order, or a list of expenses in an invoice.

When you add or edit a new line item, an in line entry form opens so you can write on the list, similar to the same way you add or edit any list on a hand written note pad.

It's really very simple. When your done adding a new line item or editing an existing one simply click the save icon  or the update icon   on the left side of the line item your working with.
