To be able to enter labor manually for employees, the employee must have a Pay Rate and the Pay Type must be hourly. This enables Chronicle to track the cost of time spent on jobs.
- If you do not plan or choose to use Tsheets with QB to automatically have settings entered into Chronicle, you will need to enter this information manually into Chronicle.
- You can only see the pay rate information on the Setup tab in the labor manager, if you meet the requirement for the PAYROLLVIEW security context.
- You can only change the pay rate entries if you meet the requirement for the PAYRATECHANGE security context. (See Security Setup for help customizing security.)
For salaried employees that go to jobs, they must be entered as hourly labor (or you must include the cost of the salary in the net profit calculation). Use an hourly equivalent of the pay rate. (For example, $400/week for a 40 hour week should be entered as $10.00/hour.) Double click in the rate column to open pop up for setting the rate. The pay rates of salaried employees is only for job costing purposes. You would not use their hours for pay roll as they are salaried.
The New Pay Rate and Old Pay Rate entries are only for your record-keeping; Chronicle doesn’t use these values for any calculations.
The bonus eligibility entries only need to be filled in if you use Chronicle’s automatic bonus report; see Bonus Reports for more info. The percentage means what percent of the bonus do you want them to receive (like for new employees_).
