Because the system allows users to create 999 categories with custom descriptions, the system had to be able to recognize whether the item was a part, labor or any other code that required special action.

For this reason a category type field has been included whose content can not be modified by the user. Note : it is only for validation purposes in the software.

What are the types of categories and what are they used for ?

Pieces :

Inventory item that is treated as a part: price matrix is applicable, the price displayed in the "Parts" column on estimates and invoices.
