Global Rate Cards
Rate Cards can be Saved As Global Rate Cards by clicking on the drop down menu in the Edit Rate Card window and reapplied to other Clients or applied directly to a Project. To load a Global Rate Card choose it from the drop-down menu in the Edit Rate Card window. Apply a Client/Customer Rate Card to all associated in the Client’s company by clicking the Apply To All in Company button in the top bar next to the green plus icon. If a Global Rate Card needs to be changed it needs to be relinked to all Clients manually.
To save the changes of a Global Rate Card select in the Edit Rate Card window through the drop down menu at the top left the option: Save As Global Ratecard. A message appears: Overwrite Existing? Confirm. Then this new Global Rate Card has to be relinked to all Clients manually. When linking a Client that has a Rate Card to a Project, farmerswife will ask if the Rate Card should be applied. When YES is selected farmerswife will ask to select which of the Rate Cards should be applied, if there is more than one Rate Card.
