What is the Main Schedule feature?

The Main Schedule feature decides which schedule a salary employee's costs will be assigned to. For this reason, it is important to assign your salary employee's a Main Schedule now. This is the first part of ongoing updates to improve salary costings on Bizimply.

Please note: If you do not assign a Main Schedule to your employees who are paid salary, their labour costs will not be applied to the schedule.

What happens when you assign employees a Main Schedule

When you assign your salary employees a Main Schedule, their labour costs will be assigned to that schedule.

They will be included in the 'Weekly Salary Costs' and the Scheduled Costs in the Labour Sales % tab. This can be seen in the two example images below.

Please note: If you have not assigned a Main Schedule to your employees who are paid salary, their labour costs will not be applied to the schedule.
