To mass update rates in the job search screen
After searching for the desired jobs, select the desired items by checking the marks on the left-hand side. Click the Mass Actions menu in the lower right-hand corner, and the option "Mass Update Rates" will appear.
Tip: Set search Type to Contract beforehand. Use the "+" buttons to expand the individual job view to see the details (to see if the job has placements or not).

Changing Mark up %s
A Bill or Pay Rate is required when changing the Mark-up Percentage. The system will not allow you to proceed without a Bill or Pay Rate entered.
Changing Bill and/or Pay Rates
The Bill and Pay rate fields being updated are the Target Pay Rate and Target Bill Rate.
Important Note: Entering a Pay or Bill rate will cause the original Mark-up % to get updated.
- We recommend updating the Mark-up %, even if it stays the same.
This screen will allow you to change the rates for the jobs selected.
You can apply changes to all existing placements by clicking the associated checkbox, and selecting a Start Date, and selecting a Reason for Contract Extension.

You can see how many placements will be affected by the action before committing.
Any time there is a rate change, the system will apply a contract extension. If a Reason is not chosen, the system will assume the chosen rate was the original one for the whole contract; this will interfere with historical data. This is why the dropdown exists and we recommend a reason be chosen; do not skip this step. The Contract Reasons to choose from can be configured in the Table Editor.
Set up a Bill Rate and Pay Rate if you do not want to keep current rates. You can also select a new overtime/double-time rate, or keep the current rates. Click Save and the new rates will be applied.
To mass update end dates and reasons
From the job search screen, check the marks for the desired jobs, click the Mass Actions menu, and select Mass Update End Dates & Reasons. The associated flyout will appear.
