Click the “Reset” button to reset the advanced search bar entries and bring the events to view back to today.

Creating New Event: 

Click “New Event” or “Booking” which will open a small window.

5.4 Recruitment

Recruit Cards Page – Admin Access

Definitions:
Recruiter – Administrator or Duty Manager User accessing the Admin Portal to use the Recruit Cards page to perform the tasks necessary to assist recruits to complete the recruitment process.

Recruit – Crew User accessing the Crew Portal to complete the recruitment process.

Applicant – Crew User accessing the Sign-Up page to register themselves as potential recruits.

Contacts (Header) > Recruit Cards

CrewCard’s Recruitment Module allows you to onboard new staff members directly into your CrewCard platform for recruitment. Recruits can access their Crew Portal Profile to complete the onboarding process once they have been invited either by a recruiter (Admin or Duty Manager User) or when Recruitment Settings are configured to allow for automatic invitations – Auto Invite.

Add Recruit

 There are two methods to initiate the recruitment process and create a Recruit Card in the Admin Portal for a recruit: Enrollment and Registration.

Enrollment. A recruit is enrolled into the system by an Admin or Duty Manager User by pressing the Add New on the Recruit Cards page.

Registration. A recruit registers themselves into the system on the Sign-Up Page.

During the onboarding process, a recruit completes a series of stages of recruitment until they are Activated by a recruiter (Admin / Duty Manager User) which moves them into the active Crew List at Contacts > Crew List.

Stages of recruitment are Enrolled / Registered, Shortlisted, Invited, Pending, Completed, Hidden and Active which can be searched in the search header of the Recruit Cards page.

Enrollment

To enroll crew into your system click the Add New button.

A pop-out window will open, please fill out the fields.

Auto – Invite: 
Invitations are not required after registration.

Once applicants have either registered themselves from the Sign-Up page or been enrolled by a recruiter, they can be invited by the recruiter via an email with a once-only access token to open their Recruit Details page and continue the process of onboarding themselves as recruits. The Auto Invite option allows you to bypass the step of Recruiters manually inviting recruits to set their password, fill in their personal details, qualifications, experience, medical history, agreements, contract, induction and accounts so that once an applicant has registered on the Sign-Up page, they can progress to the next steps without the need for an email invitation.

Recruitment Page Tabs

Crew Profile > Crew Access

Recruits (staff) can access their Crew Profile to self-register as recruits, which can also be viewed in the Recruit Cards page in the Admin Portal (admin access).

Admin Users and Duty Manager Users can view the same recruitment details as the recruits by clicking on a Recruit Card on the Recruit Cards Page at Contacts > Recruit Cards.

The Crew Portal Profile page contains several pages for recruits to navigate in order to complete their onboarding process. Admin and Duty Manager Users can access the Recruit Cards to view the Bio, Overview, Interview, Details, Agreements, Induction, Contracts, Accounts, Approval and Activate tabs.

Customise the questions that you may need to ask the recruit during a phone or in-person interview.

Agreements: Recruiters (Admin and Duty Manager) Users can assign company policies and other documents from the Resources Module in Settings and create disclaimer questions for recruits to view, sign and submit. The Agreements Invite button at the bottom of the page sends an email to the recruit with a button that links directly to the Agreements page of their Crew Portal Profile, inviting them to agree to the company policies and agreements and to accept the disclaimers, sign their signature and submit. At this point the Recruit has accepted your company’s legal requirements for employment and the Profile Completed email is automatically sent to both the recruit and Administrator with two PDF attachments and a record of the agreements that have been accepted, plus a copy of the captured signature. The PDF attachments can be uploaded in the Recruitment Settings page and can be chosen by the Administrator. An example is PDF 1 may contain ‘Welcome Information’ outlining your expectations to new staff members and PDF 2 may contain ‘Safety Handbook’. The agreements information and captured signature is also permanently stored within the Crew Profile.

Inductions: Recruits can complete a multiple-choice quiz to demonstrate their knowledge of your company’s work health and safety system such as how to submit an incident report, for example. Customise induction questions in Settings > Forms > Recruit Induction. To remove the induction tab for recruits, please hide the tab.

The Default Activity will be already assigned as will any Activities that the applicant selected on the Sign-Up Page.

 Assigned Categories – Contacts > Recruit Card > Interview Tab

The Default Category selected in the Recruit Settings will be already assigned in the Recruit Card for each recruit.

Activity Details

Activity Details displays a table with a combination of Activity, Minimum Rate and Description for each Activity assigned to the recruit.

Once “Save” is clicked, the day of the week will appear to the left of the date.

Time On: This must be entered in 24 hour format e.g. 00:00, 14:00, The “:” (Colon) can be substituted for a “.” (Full stop), so to enter 03:30 you can simply type 3.3

Tip: For 15:00 you can simply type 15 and press Tab. 00:00 refers to midnight at the very start of the day. 24:00 refers to midnight at the very end of the day.

If you type 24:00 for a Monday, the database will automatically translate it to 00:00 on Tuesday.

Time Off: Time Off has the same format as Time On.

If a shift commences on one day and finishes on another, you can enter the finish time in either day’s time.

E.g. If a shift commences at 22:00 pm on Mon 02-04-17 and finishes at 02:00 am on Tue 03-04-17, then you can enter either 22 or 2 as finish time and the database will correct the finish time to 02:00 am.

Hrs : The total working hours excluding break times.

Rate, Paid and Charge: Rates are assigned by adding/editing an activity in the Activities Page. (See “Activities Page” for more info). Pay Rates and Charged Rates can be entered under the “Activities” tab. “Paid” is the rate pay to the staff hourly for conducting the activity in the scheduled time period. “Charge” is the rate the client will be invoiced for this particular shift. In the Global Settings page, when “Hide Pay and Charge Columns” is switched to “Yes”, the ‘Paid’ and “Charge” rates will not appear in the job sheet.

Pay Date: The scheduled date to pay

Extra: Add extra charge to the shift, this will not appear on the job sheet

BTT (Break Times Total): Indicates the total amount of break times per shift. To view break times, click on the “Paper-Pencil” Icon next to the BTT column, the pop-up window opens with break details that the crew members entered via SMS whilst locking their shifts. Admin users have the option to edit breaks manually by entering start and end times. Please note that Admin users override crew breaks.

Click the break edit icon, then click on the red delete icon on the break pop-up window.

TS: Time sheet. Click on the clock to open the timesheet for the crew, where you can edit the time and break, and lock the timesheet.

Crew Name: Crew members are available to select from the arrow drop-down list or by entering names to bring up matching results. The drop-down list will be empty when no crew members are added from the “crew” page.

The KM above the upper right side of the staff name field stands for Kilometres. Also once the distance is clicked it will show the exact distance of the crew from the venue.

Note that venue and crew address should be correct for the feature to work.

Driving Distance calculates the crew’s personalized, real-life distance in km by car, from their home, to the job site.

To illustrate, you can see Scarlet Witch’s Driving Distance is 1km by clicking into “Driving Distance” on the top right hand corner.

  • When a crew member has been booked on another shift, their name will be in red and an asterisk “*” will appear next to it
  • When a crew member has made an unavailability for a shift from the crew page, their name will be in red and a hash (#) will appear next to it

When a shift is sent to a crew via SMS, the crew member replies “yes”, confirmation SMS is sent and the crew name will automatically appear in the crew name box. See “Offering Shifts and Confirming Crew” under “Job Sheet Page/ Edit Page” for more info.

Crew names can be entered manually to send a confirmation SMS. Once a confirmation SMS is sent, the crew name appears in black. It is optional to enter a crew name and save for the shifts without sending a Confirmation SMS (name will appear in blue). Names can also be entered and sent an “Offer Shift” message (name will appear in green, until the crew replies ‘yes’ to it, then it changes to black).

Auto Cancel/ Delete

Auto Cancel/ Remove

Auto Time Change

Scheduler/Auto: Please see guide 4.3

Offer Message:

This option is used when sending out ‘shift offer messages’ to staff members. Click and a page called ‘MultiSMS’ opens up, which allows you to offer shift/s to multiple staff members. The default SMS appears in the text box (editable and customisable in global settings) with another box with the list of crews that are assigned to the activity.

In this list, crew members have an asterisk (*) next to their name indicates that they are booked at that time, or a hash symbol (#) next to their name which indicates they entered their unavailability. Any other crew members are available for shifts.

Offer Same: The ‘same crew’ SMS feature works in two ways.

  1. You can book multiple people on several shifts, with a view to keep consistent staff booked on those shifts, provided you select an equal number of shifts on each occasion. For example, if on the shifts page you had four shifts for four people from 8am to 12pm and you needed the same four people to return on four subsequent shifts, perhaps that evening from 8pm to 11pm, you would have to select all eight shifts (it has to be an even number of both to work, four morning shifts and four evening shifts) and choose “Message Same Crew Shifts” in the “Select an Action” drop down list or press the edit (pencil icon) to enter the Shift Edit Page, then leave the Crew Member name blank, press “Offer Shift Same Crew”. This will bring up the default SMS (customisable and editable) and a crew list of available crew for that activity. Once again, crew that are already booked in all time slots will have an asterisk * next to their name and those that have entered their own unavailability will have a hash # next to their name. In this same crew SMS mode, if a Crew Member is already booked for one but not all of the shifts, a *+ will appear next their name and if they have made themselves unavailable for one but not all of the shifts, a #+ will appear next to their name. The message will create one shift number for both (or all shifts) but will offer crew both shifts in the same message. Depending on how you have set the default settings for the same crew SMS message in global settings, the message you’ve sent may look like this:

[715] Can you do 2 shifts, Sun 05-07, 07:45am – 12:00pm & Sun 05-07, 20:00pm – 23:00pm approx., at Cronulla Beach ? Client – X Productions. Reply 715Y for YES, 715N for NO. Await Confirmation.

The crew members are accepting both shifts by replying with 715Y. With this function, it would be possible to select all eight shifts (four in the morning and four in the evening) and send this message to eight or ten or twelve crew members (however many you think necessary to get the job filled). Once again, the system will wait the predetermined length of time that you have programmed into it; the first four of the highest ranking to reply in the affirmative will be awarded the job and will receive the confirmation messages. Those who missed out will receive the declined message to inform them that they will not be needed and to standby for more shifts. Once again, on the shifts page, it will be possible to see which shifts have been sent out using the ‘Offer Shifts Same Crew’ feature. In the shifts, under the SMS field, it will show SC “?” and the shift number created by the system for these shifts, which is, in this example, SC (715). There will be “?” next to the SC (715) of the first of these ‘linked’ shifts. When the “?” icon is clicked, a list will open of all the crew you sent the ‘same crew SMS message’ to, including the time the message was sent. As you refresh the page you will see Y and N appear after the names of the Crew Members that have responded yes or no to the shifts and the times they responded.

  1. The second way that the “Message Same Crew Shifts” can work is offering multiple shifts (under different clients and job sheets) to one crew member, for example an entire week or fortnight’s work. In the shifts page, you need to select all the shifts that you wish to offer to the one crew member, and press the edit (pencil icon) to open the shift edit page. Press the “Offer Shift Same Crew” button, select the crew member you wish to offer the shifts to from the crew list and press “Send SMS”. The content of the SMS will say how many shifts are being offered along with dates, times and locations.

Offer Multi: The ‘Multi Roster Message’ option works the same way as the Message Same Crew Shifts.

Message Multi Roster Shifts allows you to offer several shifts in one SMS/Email to a staff member/s. If they accept the shifts offered, they receive a confirmation SMS with the details of all their shifts in one SMS/Email.

On the shifts Page, at the bottom of the screen under “Select an Action”, and in the shift edit page and the job sheets pages, there is the option “Message Multi Roster Shifts”. This feature allows you to offer multiple shifts to a crew member or several crew members in a single message (SMS/Email) per crew member. The crew member/s only need to reply with a single SMS accept to be confirmed for all shifts.

For example: You could create an entire roster for the following week, select all the shifts you want in the shifts page, scroll down the bottom of the page, under “Select an Action”, select the “Message Multi Roster Shifts”. All shifts will be presented in SMS/format to the staff to accept the shifts in one go. When the crew members accept the shifts, they will automatically be sent confirm multi messages (after the predetermined length of time that is customisable in global settings under “SMS Incoming Configuration”, after “Incoming SMS Accept Shifts Interval”).

Confirm Shift: By selecting shift/s and clicking this option, you simply make a crew member/s confirmed for a shift without sending them a Confirmation Message. Their name will appear black on the shifts Page with a C next to it (under the SMS field) which indicates they have confirmed.

Confirm Message: This will send a confirmation message to the crew who is booked for the shift

Confirm Multi: Confirm multiple shift with the same crew 

Lock: Shifts must be locked with the correct times in order to be processed by payroll. Once the start/finish/break times are correct, shifts can be locked using this option from the drop down menu. Once locked, a padlock icon will appear next to the locked shift.

Admin Lock:  Shifts must be locked with the correct times in order to be processed by payroll. Once the start/finish/break times are ensured correct, shifts can be locked using this option from the drop-down menu. Once locked, a padlock icon with the word ‘ADMIN’ under it will appear next to each shift/s. Admin locked shifts can only be unlocked by ‘ADMIN’ users.

Payroll Lock: The job is locked for payroll the time sheet will be sent to be paid

Unlock: This option reverses the locked or admin locked actions.

Copy Shift (s): The selected shifts will be copied

Deleted Shift (s): The selected shifts will be deleted

Message Cancel & Delete Shift (s): Delete/cancel shift and a message will be sent to the crew member to notify them

Message Notify Staff of Change: The change in the selected shift will be sent to the crew

Highlight Shift(s): Highlight the shift, this reminds you to make changes to it

Reasons for Job Sheet Highlight:

  1. Copied Shift
  2. RP update
  3. Highlight option
  4. Copied shift that has been locked (Lock, Admin Lock and Payroll Lock)

Remove Shift(s) Highlighting: This removes the highlight from the shift.

9.1.2 Performance of Crew Calculation

The overall performance rating of a crew member is a measurement of the performance of the crew in terms of experience, crew rating/feedbacks, and reliability. Each crew member is awarded a score out of 100 that is derived from a combination of their star rating (out of 5), experience level (out of 5), reliability level (out of 5) and recent activity level (out of 5) with the formula weighted most heavily on their recent activity level rating.

Score formula:
((Experience) + Rating + Experience # Days + Reliability*#) *#)

Star Rating:
Star ratings default to a rating of 2DF for crew members not yet rated (DF = Default). Once they are rated in the calendar or app, they will earn an average star rating.

Shift Acceptance Rate:
The shift acceptance rate displays the average acceptance from crew. It shows acceptance rate within 30 days, 90 days, and 14 days.

Experience:
In the dropdown menu for experience, select 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. If you select default for the experience, the rating will be calculated automatically.

Experience Levels are 1 – 5 from least experienced to most experienced. This is defaulted to the total hours crew have worked in the system and are calculated as follows:
Level 0 – 0 Hrs
Level 1 < 100 Hrs
Level 2 100 – 200 Hrs
Level 3 200 – 500 Hrs
Level 4 500 – 1000 Hrs
Level 5 > 1000 Hrs

Once the default setting has been replaced, the experience level will no longer display DF for default.

Example: if a crew member with a lot of industry experience came to work for Show Support, then a level of 1 would not be appropriate and would adversely affect their score. In these cases, we can assign a higher level, such as 4 or 5. The DF will no longer appear after the number to display that the experience level has been manually updated.

Reliability:
Reliability rating from the dropdown menu. Reliability levels are 1 (least) – 5 (most) reliable. Reliability levels default to 5 for all crew. Reliability levels MUST be updated manually (under experience/reliability in their crew profiles) as follows:
Level 5 – No blow outs, no lateness, perfectly reliable.
Level 4 – 1 Blow Out and/or 2 Times Late in the last 12 months
Level 3 – 2 Blow Outs and/or 4 Times Late in the last 12 months
Level 2 – 3 Blow Outs and/or 6 Times Late in the last 12 months
Level 1 – 4 Blow Outs and/or 8 Times Late in the last 12 months

Bias:
Aside from experience and reliability, you can also enter bias in the crew profile page. Only admin has access to this feature. If you are using a different login credential, this option will not appear. Enter the value of bias in the provided field.

Recent Activity:

Recent Activity Levels are 0 (least) – 5 (most) active. Recent activity is based on the number of hours a Crew member has worked in the last 60 days.
Level 0 – 0 Hrs
Level 1 – 0 – 75 Hrs
Level 2 – 75 – 150 Hrs
Level 3 – 150 – 250 Hrs
Level 4 – 250 – 340 Hrs
Level 5 – 340 Hrs

Ranking Using Crew Score:

You can order ranks by hours, score or inactive.

  • Score
  • Bias
  • Hrs – Total Working Hours of the Crew
  • Hrs 7 – Total Working Hours of the Crew within a week
  • EXP – the experience rating
  • REL – the reliability rating
  • REC – the recent activity rating.

9.1.3 Activities Tags

9.3 Contracts

Crew members are sent an email invitation to accept contracts. They simply open the contract from a link in the email, review and sign it with their finger and then press submit. The final copy is emailed to the staff member and to Admin as a PDF attachment and is permanently stored in the CrewCard system. 

The process of creating contracts in CrewCard is very easy. Each contract can be added in under one minute or as long as it takes to enter the contract name, copy and paste the content, select a signature block and press save. Assigning signature blocks to your contracts means they are ‘pre-signed’ by the authorised representative from your organisation so only the recipient needs to sign and submit. Different contracts can be saved with different signature blocks. For example, a manager’s name, position and signature can be preloaded into the contract as a signature block so they will not need to sign each time the contract is executed. 

How to Add Contracts

To create contracts, go to Settings and select Contracts in the side left menu. 

Create a Signature 

You will need at least one Signature to be able to create a contract. 

To add a signature, click + Add Signature in the top left of the page. Complete the three required fields, Signature Block Name, Manager Name and Job Role. Signature Block Name refers to the name of the Signature that will be added to the contract as the signatory from your organisation. Manager Name refers to the name of the person signing – e.g. John Smith – and Job Role refers to the position of the manager signing – e.g. General Manager. The last field is the signature itself where the manager must sign using their mouse or touch screen to get the closest result possible to a hand-drawn signature. 

You may save several signatures in your Contract settings for different managers to be added to different contracts, but you can only add one signature to a contract. For example, you might have two contracts, one to be signed by the General Manager and another to be signed by the Managing Director, with the signatures for the correct manager applied to each contract.

Once a signature has been created and saved it will appear in the Signature list below the Add Signature section from where it can be edited or deleted.

Create a Contract

To add a contract, click the + Add Contract button below the Signature List.

Simply fill in the Title with the name of the contract and copy and paste the main content of the contract into the text editor below and then select a Signature from the drop down and press Save.

For employment contracts, you can insert the Activity Details by inserting the placeholder [ACTIVITY_DETAILS] at the desired place inside the contract and this will automatically pull in the Activity, Activity Description and Minimum Rate of the various Activities that have been assigned to crew members or recruits. Note, you will need to ensure the correct Categories and Activities have been assigned for this feature to function correctly. See Activity Descriptions in the User Guide for more information.

Once a contract has been created and saved it will appear in the Contract list below the Add Contract section from where it can be edited or deleted.

How Contracts are signed

There are three methods for getting contracts signed and saved in CrewCard.

  1. Recruit Contracts

Employment contracts that may be required to be accepted by new staff members as part of their onboarding process can be included via the Recruitment module. Go to Settings > Recruitment in the left side menu then scroll down to the Contract section. Select the desired contract from the Choose Contract drop down and then press Save Contract. Once contracts have been saved, they appear in the Contract form list and can be deleted if required. 

Recruits are onboarded in their Crew Portal Profile where there is a Contracts page that is optional for inclusion by the Administrator as some users may prefer to include the contract in the Agreements page. 

A recruit may locate, read and sign the contract during their onboarding process by following the steps from registration through to entering their accounts details. Recruits may also be invited to sign a contract by clicking the Invite Contract button at the bottom of the Contracts tab inside their Recruit Card in the Admin Portal. 

Invite Contract will send a Contract Invitation email to the recruit with a link to the contract page of their Crew Portal Profile indicated by the Click Here button in the email. Once inside the Contracts page, the Recruit selects the contract to open, review and sign on their mobile device (or use their pre-saved signature) and press the Submit button at the bottom.

Once the contract has been signed by the recruit, the physical contract is generated as a PDF attachment to an email sent both to the recruit and to Admin. The PDF displays the name, details and address of the staff member and the signature blocks of both the staff member and the manager. Additionally, the contract PDF is permanently saved to the Crew Profile of the recruit to be accessed at any time.

 

  1. Invite Contract for Crew Members

Crew members can be invited to accept contracts from within their Crew Profile in the Admin Portal. Go to Contacts > Crew List > Edit Crew Profile (right of screen) > Invite Contracts (side left menu). Select the desired contract from the drop down menu and press Send Invite.

Invite Contract will send a Contract Invitation email to the crew member with a link to the contract page of their Crew Portal Profile indicated by the Click Here button in the email. Once inside the Contracts page, the crew member selects the contract to open, review and sign on their mobile device (or use their pre-saved signature) and press the Submit button at the bottom.

Once the contract has been signed by the client contact, the physical contract is generated as a PDF attachment to an email sent both to the recruit and to Admin. The PDF displays the name, details and address of the client contact and the signature blocks of both the client contact and the manager. Additionally, the contract PDF is permanently saved to their Client Profile to be accessed at any time.

9.4 Actions Forms

Actions forms are custom online forms for your staff to complete.

CrewCard offers as many online forms to help you manage your business as you need.

For example, you may need pre-start safety checklists, or office inductions, workplace inspections, or equipment sign-out forms. CrewCard can tailor such forms with checkboxes, text fields, images, links, checkboxes and yes or no questions for your staff to complete, sign and submit using their mobile device. In addition, any of your company policies, documents, SWMS and Toolbox Talks can also be included in these forms, providing you with fully fledged and dynamic safety inductions for every occasion.

The possibilities for potential Actions forms that can be added to your CrewCard system are as endless as your imagination. Furthermore, these forms are linked to your scheduling system for staff to complete when required, all conveniently saved in your CrewCard Admin Portal once completed as proof of acceptance and a helpful Admin email to let you know. CrewCard’s Actions forms automate your workflow by saving you from having to remember and follow up all the various agreements staff have to complete during the course of their work.

Actions are responsive web pages that can be accessed by your staff in their Actions page, emailed either manually or automatically with a link contained in the body of the email prompting the recipient to open the page and complete the form. The link is authenticated to log the crew user directly into their Crew Portal to complete, sign and submit the form. Once the form has been completed, an email is sent to Admin with proof of the agreement and the completed form is saved inside the Crew Profile in your Admin Portal along with the staff’s signature. The forms can also be accessed from the Forms Matrix, so that any agreements made by staff will be saved permanently in your CrewCard system.

Actions forms can be emailed manually at any time from within the Crew Profile in the Admin Portal and located using the side menu Invite Action option. Simply select the Action from the drop down list and then click Send Invite to manually trigger the email to be sent to your crew member.

Skills
Automated Actions emails can be programmed to be sent to crew members according to their skills, such as labourer or delivery driver. One or several skills (activities) may be selected, or all skills in the event the form applies to everyone in your organisation.

Frequency
Forms can also be provided to staff at certain programmed times, such as the first time they are confirmed on a shift, or every time they are confirmed, monthly, quarterly, every six months or every year. For example, you may have a Forklift Induction that needs to be sent to a Forklift driver prior to their first shift, or you may require staff to complete a questionnaire every year to prove they are up to date with your latest policies and procedures. The best thing about using CrewCard for your forms is that it is connected to your rostering and scheduling solution, so Actions are only sent to staff as and when required, when they are booked. What is the point of emailing an induction reminder every 12 months to a staff member that no longer works for you?

Simply contact the CrewCard team with your requests for custom paperless forms and we will have them integrated into your platform ASAP. Simple forms can be produced on the same day, complex forms may take a bit longer.

10.1.1 Accounts Details (for Invoices)

Below is an example invoice using the following settings to set up the company’s account details.

1. Payment Terms: X amount of days can be set for invoices which will appear as “Payment Terms: 7 days from date of invoice.”

2.Payment Grace Period: “X” amount of days after sent date before the interest is charged.

There are 2 options for adding a Management Tax (or any extra charge) to tax invoices as either a percentage (%) or a flat amount, even if you do not select a Management tax amount in global settings. When you open a Tax Invoice (Ops Home > [any Invoice number]) at the bottom right-hand side of the invoice, click the “Apply Management Tax” checkbox (it will be whatever name you enter in the global settings page) and enter the amount % or flat rate to add to the invoice.

For Example: If you wish to add a Credit Card Surcharge to your Tax Invoices, you could change the Management Tax Name to Credit Card Surcharge in global settings. Even if the checkbox in global settings for management tax is not selected, when you open the Tax Invoice you can tick the checkbox at the bottom right-hand side, enter the amount of the surcharge and Send Invoice.

5. Management Tax Name: Name of Management Tax can be assigned here, i.e: Credit Card Surcharge
