Track wage increases
Allow the option to track dates of pay raises for each employee. Right now, pay rate reports are only run based on the wage that is currently entered into the system for each employee. This makes any sort of long-term reporting virtually useless, as there's no way it can be accurate if even just one of the employees you're running the report for received a raise within the timeframe you're running the report.
The only way to make it accurate is to set the date ranges to match each timeframe the employee worked at a certain wage, go into their settings and change their wage, and do that as many times as it takes with as many reports as necessary to reflect all their pay rates they worked at since the beginning of your report.... this takes HOURS for even just a handful of employees for a 2+ year span for any given job. Maybe this isn't a problem for companies whose employees sit stagnant at the same wage for years, but for companies who have a comprehensive growth/development plan for their team, it simply does not work the way it is right now.
Hello again Angela, thanks for your detailed feedback it is super useful to hear what challenges you are facing and why.
The Pay Rate is used on the Pay Rate report which is great for simple calculations but definitely falls short for more complex ones like you mention.
Are you running this report for a job over multiple years frequently?
