Off (default setting): Your customers will be billed for the exact time booked on the job.
If you bill for labour in blocks of 5, 6, 10, 15, 30, 45 or 60 minutes, select the appropriate Block from the drop-down list and enter a Charge Rate (per block, not per hour).
When labour is booked on a job, the system will check the exact time and then round up to the billing block that has been configured.
For example, if time block billing is set to 15 mins and the worker books 12 mins of labour on the job, the system will bill your customer for 1 block of 15 mins. If the worker books 17 mins of labour on the job, your customer will be billed for 2 blocks of 15 mins.
This is the amount you will charge those clients who don't request a quote but who simply ask you to go ahead with the work. (Also see Quote Rate, above.)
Applies a multiplier to employee hourly cost rates for calculating penalty rates for payroll purposes ie: normal time, time + half, double time etc.
For example, if you select "Double Time" it will multiply the employee's hourly cost rate (set in their User profile ) by 2. It does not use the charge rate set on the work type.
