Role & Project Summary

  • Multiple Rates of Pay - Job Codes

  • How to add multiple job costing codes at one time instead of manually one by one in the platform
  • How to add multiple job codes for someone who has multiple rates of pay
  • Users are able to add multiple job codes to a user who has multiple rates of pay

Project Constraints

  • The individual user detail page was already designed so there was no work on that part necessary. I worked on where it would make the most sense to add multiple rates of pay, which was pretty clear from the existing page

  • Users should be able to add multiple job codes to an existing user in a way thats similar to what they do for a single rate of pay
  • We believe that users need a seamless way to add multiple job codes to a single users in the product instead of having to do long workarounds
  • We decided we needed to build something that was essentially unlimited as we dont know how people would fully utilize this


Users can successfully upload and assign multiple job codes to multiple users with a single file

We understand how a bulk upload would work, as we had not introduced this to any other point in the UI to date

We clarified with the developers that this could work and how best it could work

The place where an individual saw their job code already established in the UI, so making this change was very straight forward
