As an administrator of a workspace, you can store an individual flat hourly rate as well as flat hourly labor costs for each team member of your workspace.  


The hourly rate you determine applies to all time entries that the respective team member books as billable and is thus interpreted as earnings of the respective project as well as earnings of the employee.

When a general hourly rate is already stored in the workspace, it will be overwritten by the individual hourly rate for the team member and will always be applied if not defined again individually differently on project or project member level.


Below we will show you step by step how to make both settings:


________________________________________________________________________________


#01 Set individual labor cost

Enter the hourly amount for the work of the selected team member (e.g. "36,70" or "44,21").

The currency displayed is based on your setting in the workspace.
