Salesman cost is enabled by the client setting Enable Salesman Cost__%. The Salesman Cost field, which will now display on the Product Home page and the Purchasing page, is updated based on a percentage of the SiteCost that is entered on this client setting. When using this client setting, the Salesman Cost is used as the cost of the product when generating the Salesman Commission Report.
The Salesman Cost can also be an editable field. In order to have an editable field for Salesman cost, you must disable client setting Enable Salesman Cost __% and enable client setting Allow Free Edit Salesman Cost. When the Salesman Cost is editable, there is no functionality for Salesman Commissions.
The idea of the editable Salesman cost is that you can manually set the cost on the product (different from the AverageCost or SiteCost). People related to sales will consider this as the actual cost and then price the products accordingly.
- To restrict your employees from seeing costs other than the Salesman cost, you can enable the client setting Hide Costs From Employees. This will hide all costs from all employees that are not the role of either Administrators, Client Admins, or Pricing Admins.
- If you would like an employee to be able to see the Salesman Cost, then add role Salesman Cost View to their employee profile.
- If you would like an employee to be able to edit the Salesman Cost, then add role Salesman Cost Edit to their employee profile.
