Use the blue button Create New PayRate at the bottom of the screen a pop up box will appear asking you to name the new Pay Rate. Try to use a convention that will make it easy for you to find the correct default rate ie:
- HCA Barchester Royal Only
- HCA Nursing Homes
- HCA NHS Trust
- RGN Barchester Royal Only
Similarly if each Client has their own pay and charge rates you might want to set them up as follows:
- Barchester HCA

- Barchester RMN
- BUPA HCA

- Sat Day
- Sat Night
- Sun Day
- Sun Night
- Bank Holiday
Above is an example only your setup may include different shifts and you should select according to your shift set up.
As you select the shifts they will be added in the box to the left which has a background colour of yellow. The box below in white shows the start and finsh times of these shifts. These can be changed if nescessary.
When defaults are set up they are set up for a year, the start date will be todays date and the finish date will default to one year on. If you need the start date to be backdated to cover shifts already worked you can do this by clicking on the arrow next to the start date and selecting a different date from the calendar displayed. Similarly the end date can be amended to a next review date by selecting the second date.
