Multiple cost factors for an Asset

Recommended Posts

Looking for suggestions for setting up assets that have multiple components to cost.   For example:   Purchase a print for $200, Have it framed for another $300.   I have receipts for both elements and would scan them into the system.  I can just set up $500 in the Total Cost field and view the images to see the components but I would like to use the Notebook or user fields to reflect the individual costs while having the Total Cost field reflect the sum,.   Can this be done or there recommended approaches?

Similar question:   I would like to confirm that the Quantity field is not used in cost calculations.  i.e. there is no Unit Cost field, only the total cost.    I converted data moving unit cost into Base Cost and Total Cost into Total Cost.   For example qt=5  base cost=10 and total cost=50.   I believe that is incorrect and I should reconvert, ignoring my old system's Unit Cost.

What we could do is add a new category to the NOTEBOOK called something like "Additional Cost", adding an item with this category would result in it being added to arrive at the final TOTAL COST of the item.

Is that an acceptable solution for you?

OK.  I look forward to the enhancement.   I will import my data as currently set up in my old system:  1 item for the unit, a second item for the additional costs.

Once the update is in place I can use the notebook feature to update item 1 and delete item 2.

Thank you.
