The Expenses sub-screen:
•Identifies additional expenses incurred for this workorder item that would not be parts or service
•Identifies if chargeable to client or not
A suggested use is for additional expenses that are not Parts, Travel, Outside Service or Labor. For example, you may indicate overnight accommodation charges here that a client reimburses you for, miscellaneous items that are not identified in inventory, or it may be that you reimburse your staff for gas purchases if they use their own vehicle.
If you do not want the Expenses subsection to show in the entry screen for users of a certain security group, just set the security group Object.WorkorderItemExpense to Forbidden
