Employee Activity Exception Window

Top  Previous  Next

Clicking on the Add or Edit buttons on the Employee / Manager / Salesperson Window - Time Tab will open the Employee Activity Exception Window.  This window is used to enter Time Activity Codes that will be billed at a different Rate or Cost than Employee's default values.  When creating a Time Entry, if you use a Time Activity that has been entered as an Exception for the respective Employee, Design Manager will use the Exception Rate and Cost instead of the Rate and Cost from the Employee / Manager / Salesperson Window - Time Tab.  For more information on Time Activities, see Time Activity Glossary Window.

Always override the rate/cost with the values entered below no matter what the setting in the activity: When this option is checked, the rates entered on this window will always be used not matter how the Activity is configured.  Otherwise the rates will be used unless the Activity is set to override them.


Rate (Tier 1, 2, 3): Enter the billing rate for the Activity. This is the rate per hour that you want to charge the client when an Employee performs this Activity.
