For rate-based expense codes, you define the rate at which the expense will be calculated in the expense sheet. However, users can be allowed to override the preset rate, if required. To allow users to override rate-based expenses, follow the steps given below:

  • Login with administrator privileges
  • Identify the permission assigned on user’s profile. (The permission assigned to user can be found in the Advanced tab in Edit Users page)
  • Click on Administration tab in the top menu.
  • Click Permission under Users/Department in the left menu.
  • Open Edit Permission page by clicking on the permission assigned to the user (e.g., Expenses).
  • Expand the list of Expense options under the permission.
  • Enable Override amount for rated expenses by put check mark in the box beside it.
  • Click Save.

Note: You may have to create another ‘Permission’ based on permission assigned to the user and then grant access to Override amount for rated expenses, if you wish to grant 'Override amount for rated expenses' for specific employees in Web Timesheet.
