Create a scenario

Create scenario

In Award test you are able to use Real time sheets or Create a Scenario (allowing you to create a mock timesheet scenario that you would like to test out).

Below is a short example of a Boilermaker position in the Manufacturing Award for client Cup Co based in QLD who works Monday to Thursday including overtime on a Monday, as well as public holiday rates for the Tuesday, and the resulting analysis with the charge rates summary.

  Please note this Screen Navigation has no sound, please watch and follow along for helpful tips on the Create a scenario feature.

We're working on exciting updates!

  Please note you'll only be able to create 1 mock timesheet as the scenario presently.

This means that currently you cannot use the Create a Scenario function to compare a couple of scenarios e.g. 2 employees timesheets.

Create a Scenario

To Create a Scenario:

  1.  Navigate to Payroll > Award Test and select the Create a scenario button.
  2.  On the left side of the screen in the Timesheets section  select the relevant day of the week and input:
    • Roster input times including break duration and break start time (optional).
    •  You can add another shift to the same day (if needed).

    • You can also add multiple shifts to multiple days by copying the create shift and choosing the day of the week to copy to and the tick.
    • The copied shifts will then display under the selected days of the week.

    • You can even use the checkbox to mark if a particular day is a public holiday for the purpose of the scenario.
    • At the bottom of the screen a summary of the days, shifts, breaks and total hours displays.
      • Any items listed in red for example Add Positions as listed below, need to be entered in before you can begin the analysis.

  3. On the right you can then select a specific Award and Position on the right and the timesheet information on the left.

    • Operation based- If you have the same position in the same Award but different Operation based information (due to different charge rates for your clients), you can also use the Operation based scenario approach. The below example image shows the selection for a Operation based scenario.
