How Join presents project costs based on your Markups setting

Cost summaries are presented in the main project estimate widget, in the dashboard, on each milestone, and within items. There are three ways that Join presents these cost summaries:

Show markups allocated:

  • Markups are included in all milestone costs, budget costs, and item costs
  • All markups are allocated pro rata into direct costs

Show markups separated:

  • Markups are included in all milestone costs, budget costs, and item costs
  • Markups are not allocated and are displayed separately from direct costs

Direct costs only:

  • Markups are excluded in all milestone costs, budget costs, and item costs
  • Only direct costs display

To switch between different settings, you can click into the Display costs dropdown in the left sidebar:
