Mass Cost enables users to add costs for any items that do not have a cost associated with them. This allows for costs to be captured in real time, but entered with a 0 amount and the cost to be filled in at a later date. The functionality for Mass Cost includes adding an hourly rate to items, dividing a total amount among items, and adding a specific cost to many items. Mass Cost can be used for costs divided by a flat cost amount, dividing a percentage of a salary, when final costs for services are not determined until the end of the month, and much more.

A line item will only show up as Mass Cost and be searchable if it is entered with a cost of $0.
