In order to update your pack labor hourly rates per crew size you will navigate to the following:

Manage > Admin > Settings > Estimates > Estimate Settings

Inside the estimate settings page, you will click on the labor price estimate tab (PURPLE)

Inside the labor price estimate tab you will see the page below:

People (Purple): This column lists the crew size that you have listed for the hourly rates.

Pack Per Hour (BLUE): This is where you can list your pack labor hourly rates for each individual crew size.

Action (Yellow): Anytime you make changes to the People, Price Per Hour, Base Price, or Pack Per Hour fields you will want to select the green update button inside of this box. If you do not want to have a price for any particular crew size you can then use the trash can to delete that specific crew size from the list of rates.

Once you have updated your Pack Per Hour prices, you can add prices according to the materials used. Navigate to the following:

Inside the Packing Materials page, you will see the page below:

Flat Pack (Purple): This is the default flat rate for packing the material on the left.

Flat Unpack (Blue): This is the default flat rate for unpacking the material on the left.

Pack Time (Orange): This is the default amount of time in minutes it takes one man to pack one box. The system will use this time & the total number of boxes to calculate the packing hours on the estimate, which will be divided by the number of men being sent on the pack job.

Unpack Time (Brown): This is the default amount of time in minutes it takes one man to unpack one box. The system will use this time & the total number of boxes to calculate the packing hours on the estimate, which will be divided by the number of men being sent on the pack job.
