Create additional lock day options in Profit/Cost adjustments

For construction products, the timeframe is usually longer than 120 days for pricing.  Marksman offers lock days up to 360 days, so our profit/cost adjustments should also consider those same days.  While it may not be common, a strategic client, Cardinal Financial, is opening up pricing past 120 days, and will need to adjust that via profit/cost adjustments.  However, they cannot until we provide that option.

    Pricing has the option up to 360 days. Preferred correction would be to allow profit/cost adjustments to have the same options as are in the drop down on the rates page.

    The strategic client that has requested this provides about $30,000 per month.

    Is this something we are going to expect to see more?  Or is this a one-off type of situation? How often are construction products quoted or requested?  Do we expect to see more of these?

    It was mentioned this could be a large fix.
