Use this method to calculate or re-calculate the cost of a Codyt job.

Please note that the method takes no action unless the job is assigned to a vendor and a service. Please note that cost calculation will only work correctly if:

  • The job is assigned to a vendor and service. Jobs assigned to the client of a project will not be costed.

  • An assigned supplier service is defined for a unit such as words, chars, minutes, etc. Make sure that the word count includes the total count for the unit. Otherwise, a cost calculation cannot work.

  • Other conditions may apply.

When a cost cannot be calculated, the system will reset / clear the cost.
