Work Units

Work Units are sub-tasks on a shift that are paid in addition to an hourly wage rate.

Say you have a cleaning business and want to pay your employees a flat rate per house they will clean. Or a Sales rep getting commission per sale, a delivery person who is also compensated for the mileage covered, a contractor who is paid per completed task etc. Tasks can also be used where you want to pay per shift/day worked against hourly wages. 

Enable the 'Work Units' feature from the tab Settings > ShiftPlanning > Enable Work Units Module.
