You may wish to initialize certain settings that will affect Employee Time prior to recording hours for the first time.

 

First, you'll want to access the Time Activity Glossary Window to add the necessary Time Activities to properly classify employee time within the company.

When adding Employees, you may want input Tier Rates and Tier Costs for the Employee on the Employee / Manager / Salesperson Window - Time Tab.  These will be the default Rate and Cost for a particular Project depending on the selected Time Billing Tier on the Project Window - Defaults Tab.

From this tab, you can also enter Employee Activity Exceptions which can use a different Tier Rate and Tier Cost combination for a particular Time Activity for the Employee.
