Estimates and Invoices not showing the margin unless a Global Admin - Bug Fix
When delegating permissions to other users, even if you give them full permissions they cannot mouse over the total and see the total profit for the estimate or invoice unless you make them a global admin. This makes it hard to work out the margin on an estimate or invoice or risky to make all users global admins.
Logically if the user has cost price permissions this function should work.
Will go out in next release, thanks!

We could currently work out cost price line by line. If we are doing a system build for example we might have eight line items for the build, then another four to ten for services, while the labour is not got a cost associated with it it does have tax which is less 10%. So we have to calculate the retail excluding tax (it’s a legal requirement to quote including GST), we then have to calculate the total costs of all line items. We do about 100-150 estimates a week, given this process could take up to a minute that means 2.5 hours a week. Techs in Australia get paid about $26 per hour so that’s $280 per month spent working around a bug. I have switched on Global Admins for everyone again, as the security groups are not worth $280 per month.

This is so annoying! I have to be made a global admin which I can see annoys my boss. It essentially renders the whole security permissions module useless.
