Set Up Pay Rates

  • Updated

Who this feature is for

  • Dashboard Users with access to Timesheet Codes in the Assignar Web App.
  • Those responsible for Payroll and reviewing Timesheets.

 

Pay Rates refer to the amount of money workers are paid per hour, per week, etc. You can set up a set of rules that adds different pay rates to your worker's approved Timesheet based on the hours worked, so your workers can be paid accurately. 

To begin, set up your Timesheet Codes

These codes are typically kept in your accounting software. 

  1. Under Field Data, navigate to Timesheet Codes
  2. Click +Add New
  3. Fill in the Code and the Label (e.g. Code: 01, Label: Base Rate)
  4. Save
  5. Repeat until you've built your list of Timesheet Codes

  • User Pay Rate Group
  • Role Pay Rate Group
  • Project Pay Rate Group
  • Client Pay Rate Group
