Categories allows associate crew activity and hours applied to their pay rate. When setting this up we strongly suggest you to contact email@example.com.
For Example: You may have three different rates you pay your staff for the same activity: Trainee, Normal, and Experienced. These would be your “Categories” you can apply and customize a range of rates to each Category. To change a Crew Member’s pay rate from Trainee to Normal, just change the Category in their Crew Member Details Page from Trainee to Normal. In this way all the rates that have been set will be applied in one go.
Priority: Pay/Charge rates can be entered on either “Rates” or “Categories” pages and the amounts under “Rates” are displayed on Invoices/Payroll by default. Priority allows the users to prioritise which rates should be applied first and overrides default rates. The higher the number the higher the priority.
Any of the Crew, Activities or Rate can be selected to associate with the category, simply move them to the right section “Part of this Category”
