You have different pay rules based on the hours worked. Keeping track of these rules are now easier than ever with Pay Rates in Assignar.  

There are many different ways to apply Pay Rates in Assignar. Below we explore how to add pay rate groups and the different modules you can create them in.

Setting Up Pay Rate Group

The first step to creating a pay rate group, is setting up your timesheet codes. These codes are typically kept in your accounting softwrae. 

  1. To get started you need to set up your different pay rate codes. To do this go to Timesheets & Dockets > Timesheet Codes 
  2. Click Add Rate 
  3. Add in the code and the label. i.e. Code - 01, Label - Base Rate 
  4. Click Save, repeat this step with all your codes

The next step will be to add the Pay Rate Group under the different modules, we have outlined how to do this below per module
