- Vendor Rate—If you select this field, you can specify the rate for a vendor based on a task or the classification of the timekeeper.
Depending on the type of rate the client specifies, select a classification type from the Timekeeper Classification field, or select a task from the Task Code field.
- Enter an hourly rate in the Rate field.
- Enter a Start Date and End Date for the period of time the rate will be valid.
- Click Add Item. The line item is added to the rate request, and additional line items may be added by repeating steps 6-8.
- To delete a rate request, select the checkbox to the far left of the line item, then click Delete Checked Items.
Delete Line Item
- To edit a rate request, select the icon to the far right of the line item. The line item information opens in the data panel above, where you can change any of the data that was initially entered.
- When all line items have been added, click Next. Refer to the Rate Request Fields table for more information about the fields.
- Review your information. If you are ready to submit the rate request to the client, click Submit at the top right. If you wish to save the rate request for later submissions, click Done.
Note: If you cannot save a rate request, you might have conflicting rates. Make sure the same combination of rate type, timekeeper, task code, and/or classification does not have an overlapping time period.
