Set Up Hourly Pay Rates

Key Points

  • Zen Planner offers a time clock funcion for your hourly staff members to clock-in and clock-out of their shifts. This can be accessed in Studio and on the Staff App Tablet.
  • If you'd like for your staf to be able to edit their own hourly time worked, ensure they have the correct privileges (Timesheet) so they may do so.


Zen Planner gives you the ability to create multiple hourly pay rates so you can effectively manage differing rates by business role, or even by staff member.  A staff member can also be assigned to more than one hourly rate if they perform different roles for the business (front desk, coach, class programming)

Here are the steps to create hourly pay rates. See a list of all available pay rate settings


First, go to Setup>Staff>Pay Rates and click Add a Pay Rate.  On the popup menu select Hourly.

Next, enter a label for your pay rate, a per hour rate and enter a start date.  The end date is left blank for permanent or ongoing rates. Only use the end date field if this rate is temporary and there is an expiration date after which it shouldn't be used (holiday rates, events, etc.). Click Choose Staff when you're finished.




Select the staff members who will earn at this rate, the click Save Changes.




Now, on the summary page, you can see the hourly rate you just added.  

From here you can click on an existing pay rate to edit it, or click the +Add a Pay Rate button to continue building new pay rates.
