Is it possible to track profitability on a sale from cost that gets applied to a manufacturing or work order?
Work orders do not post to the general ledger, which means that they do not affect any financial reports in QuickBooks.
Therefore, you cannot track profitability via a work order. You must convert it to an invoice before QuickBooks can compute profitability.
I hope this answers your question about profitability tracking. Take care and thanks for writing.
