The purpose of this feature is to provide the ability to add extra transaction types on placements that can support all kinds of pay types. These types range from hours, units, and tips. This ensures the information can be captured via all time collection avenues: Timesheets, Batch Hours, Group Time, and Back Office Time Entry.
Front Office Only clients
When your hours are all captured, you can continue with your typical Talent Pay, Talent Invoicing, and Pay & Bill Archive processes to export your pay and bill data.
Front and Back Office Clients
If using any of the time capture methods noted above, you will continue with your typical Import Connect Module Timesheets process to ensure all of the time captured is brought into Time Entry. This will be according to your standard process. Additionally, if Time Entry is used to manually enter time within Back Office, a time entry user will see these additional transaction types set up on placements automatically. This will be a part of the Time Entry transaction available, to manually enter pay and bill units accordingly.
Creating Additional Transaction Types
Front and Back office
All transaction types are set up within Back Office. Within Admin Tools > Settings > Transaction Types on your setup, you will see a checkbox that can be selected to make this available within Front Office.
The Synced to Front Office checkbox will be disabled if the system name on the transaction type is Reg or OT or DT or DHFee, or if the transaction type is not "Is Transactional".
