While in the quantity field for materials (Stock and Direct Job Costs) you can enter simple formulas to calculate your quantity use.
For example, if a material like Gravel is reported to you as 2 loads, but your material inventory for Gravel is setup by the ton and your convention is that your dump trucks carry 15 tons per load, you can enter the formula 2*15
Once you enter the formula, just tab to the next field and PubWorks will produce the calculated quantity for you.
