Why is it important to track my team’s salaries and expected weekly hours in Monograph? Here are a few great reasons why:

  • Easily refer to historical pay rates and titles

  • Improve reporting and profit calculations across your projects

  • Allocate hours in Resource more accurately based on the expected weekly hours


🚨 Only users who have Admin permission levels will be able to add, edit and view compensation information.


Adding Team Compensation

When you add a new team member and don't add their compensation right away, you'll see a notification next to Team on the sidebar to alert you that it still needs to be added.

To enter compensation for your team, click on Team on the sidebar. Once you're in the Team Directory, you'll see another alert showing you who is missing compensation. Click on Add Compensation to be taken directly to the user's profile.

Once you're in the user's profile, since this is the first time you’re entering their salary information, you’ll click on Set Up Compensation.

From there, a pop-up window will appear. You’ll then be prompted to enter the team member’s compensation type, annual salary or hourly rate, hours per week, and the effective date. Click Save.

After you save, the compensation information will then appear within the team member’s profile, along with a tag that says Current.

Once you have finished editing within the profile, you can click Exit to go back to the team member’s overview page. You’ll now be able to see their current compensation here as well.


🚨 Adding compensation information to Monograph does not tie to your payroll software and will not adjust your team member's salaries by doing so. Adding this information to Monograph is for tracking and reporting purposes only.


Adding Historical and Future Compensation

Once you've added the current compensation information for a team member, you'll then have the option to add any historical entries, as well as adjust compensation if you’d like to schedule a future adjustment, such as a raise.

To add this information, click on the team member's name within the Team Directory to take you to their overview page.

On the team member’s overview page, click Edit in the upper right corner to open their profile.

Adding Historical Entries

Click on Add historical entry to enter past salary and/or hourly rates.

From there, a pop-up window will appear. You’ll then be prompted to enter the team member’s previous compensation type, annual salary or hourly rate, hours per week, and the effective date. Click Save.

Repeat this step as many times as necessary until you have entered all of their historical compensation information. These will appear chronologically below the current compensation information.

Adjusting Future Compensation

Click on Adjust Compensation to enter past salary and/or hourly rates.

From there, a pop-up window will appear. You’ll then be prompted to enter the team member's new or future compensation type, annual salary or hourly rate, hours per week, and the effective date. Click Save.

Repeat this step as many times as necessary until you have entered any known future adjustments you'd like to make. These will appear chronologically above the current compensation information, along with a tag that says Scheduled.


Stopping Compensation

If a team member won't be paid for a period of time, for example, if they'll be taking a sabbatical, or if they will no longer be employed after a certain date, you can easily stop their compensation.

To add this information, click on the team member's name within the Team Directory to take you to their overview page, then click Edit. After that, click on Stop Compensation.

From there, a pop-up window will appear. You’ll then be prompted to enter the date that you'll stop compensation for the selected team member. Click Stop.

Once you've entered the information, it will appear chronologically amongst the rest of the compensation history. If, or when, the team member would return in the future, you would then select Adjust Compensation to enter their new salary or hourly rates.


How is this Information Used

We use the compensation information entered by you to populate and increase the accuracy of your profit reports. Without entering salary information, we are unable to calculate your project margins.

We use the hours-per-week information entered by you to control the hours that you're able to schedule in Resource. Without entering a user's expected hours per week, we are unable to show when you've scheduled within 10% of a user's expected weekly hours.
