As well as, has the ability to update Global Settings and set program defaults in PASKR, such as update mark-ups, add/remove/manage cost codes, estimate templates, trade types, expense payment types, employee wage rates, etc. Any item updated under Settings>Administration. Typically a specific small group of Sr. company employees would have this designation.
Hourly Employee – employees that will keep time cards or be marked on Daily Logs as present on site. *Note: Even if salaried…if you want them to code time against a cost code so you can prepare better estimates, they would need this designation.
Notary – notaries can enter their notary information and will be able to notarize Owner Bills & Sub Lien Waivers electronically.
Limited View – projects will only show on the project list if that employee is listed on the project’s Project Information page.
