You will need to have a "staff type" that can be used solely for your staff that are paid hourly for their shifts. 

If you need to know how to create a new staff type, please see Staff Types

Once you have created a new staff type you need to apply it to each of your hourly paid staff.

1. How do I add a staff type to a staff record?

  • In each staff member's record, navigate to the Settings option, then choose the "Paid hourly" staff type from the dropdown menu.

  • Click "Update".


Next you will need to set up a compensation condition that ensures any hourly paid staff will appear in the Compensation Report with a nil value in the compensation column.

You can then calculate their pay through the Staff Activity Report, and run the "Timecard export" to work out their payroll.

If you need to know how to create a new compensation condition, please see How do I add a compensation condition that relates to Staff Type?

Once you have saved the new compensation condition, the next time you run the Compensation Report, your hourly paid staff will have a nil value.

NOTE: you will need to create a new charge condition for EVERY service that your hourly paid staff deliver.

2. How do I add a Compensation Condition for a Staff Type?

  • Navigate to ADMIN > SERVICES > choose the service, ie. "Dog walk 3 dogs, 30 mins"

  • Click "Compensation Conditions" from the centre panel

  • Click "Add a New Condition"

  • Choose "the staff type is" and "Paid hourly"

  • Enter "$0.00" in the "Then compensation is" panel.

  • Click "Update"


  • Your new compensation condition appears in the list for that service. Every time a new job is scheduled for a staff member who has the staff type "Paid hourly" they will appear on the compensation report with a value of $0.00 compensation due.
