Updating a Person's Cost Rate and/or Role

A person's cost rate is used to calculate billings, people costs and profits across Runn. Furthermore, the person's role determines how the person is being charged-out on a project.  We therefore do not recommend you update a person's contract once the person has been scheduled on projects. 

Instead, create a new contract with the new cost rate and/or role, starting from the date the new cost rate and/or role will come into effect. Then add an end date to update the existing contract. This way any historical information will be retained. 

Deleting Employment Contracts

You cannot delete an Employment contract. It will remove the cost rate that's associated with the person and may affect the accuracy of your financial forecasts and reports. 

Instead, update the contract's end date to earlier than today's date. The contract will no longer be current. This will move the contract to person's Previous contract list.
