I am a remodeler and would like more features for materials.
It would be helpful to have a separate materials column in the project view to keep track of materials costs. Currently people, equipment, and materials resources are all rolled into one resources column.

Also, I would love a materials library format to store materials for future projects. It would be helpful to have other formats than cost and hourly such as sq. foot etc. and a column in the project view that you could enter the quantity that would relate to the materials totals. This library would need a nesting style pull down menu of it's own so that entry of people resources and materials resources would not get in each other's way. A third separate equipment library would be even better.

Any feedback or ideas on how to achieve this?
We run into same problem - end up creating 100 + resources

One task may use 10 bolts, and other 100 bolts at $1.00

No way to specify how much a material you need - so end up creating resource

10 Bolts
100 Bolts

Labor is hours * cost -- makes sense materials should be QTY * costs.... but no Quaintly variable.
