To configure Higher Duties in Tanda, go to Payroll > Payroll Manager:

Under Active Awards, at the end of the row for the relevant award, click on Manage Award:

Click on Configure higher duties:

To start, add a new Higher Duties Jump. A “jump” is when an employee starts on Level 2, but works at a Level 3 rate - they are “jumping” from the lower to the higher rate:

You should add a jump for each possible combination of levels that can happen in your business. Not every business will have Level 1 staff that can work in a Level 4 capacity so don’t configure that unless it applies to you - this will make your timesheets a lot simpler.

Click the Save button once you’ve created all of your jumps:

Tanda will then tag this on every person’s profile who is at the applicable level. Go to Workforce > Staff > click on an employee's profile > Payroll tab:

When you are approving timesheets, you will simply need to tag the shift when they worked at the higher level by clicking in the Award Tag section. If this drop-down doesn't show, enable it in General Settings > Timesheets > Show an extra dropdown to adjust shift cost:

In the Timesheet Export Summary, you will then see the shift is being applied at the higher rate:

Important Information

If you are using MYOB Desktop, you will need to create new Payroll Categories for the Higher Duties you have created in Tanda. You can do this in the same way you originally created new Payroll Categories in MYOB to match Tanda, by going to Payroll > Payroll Manager > Manage Award and clicking on Configuration Report. In this report you will find the new higher duties Payroll Categories which you can copy and paste as new ones in MYOB.

If you use MYOB Live or Xero, Tanda will automatically create new Pay Items for these jumps.
