When you need to pre-determine how a department's costs are allocated, irrespective of where an employee works, you can set up a cost split to various departments.  This might be necessary where a template is needed for costing rather than using the employee's actual paid hours.

Setting up Cost Splits

If you want to split an employee's costs across a number of departments set up the proportions in the employee's departments tab. 

  1. Navigate to Setup > Employee details
  2. Select the employee from the Employee drop-down
  3. Click on the Departments tab
  4. Click the Select button at the bottom of the screen.  

  5. You can then key in the percentage to apportion costs to departments for this employee. Click in the column labelled Cost Split %, inline with a department that the employee Works At, and enter the percent.
  6. Once set up click on Save
    NOTE: The total of the percentages you enter across the departments must add up to 100% or you won’t be permitted to save.
  7. You will now see the cost split percentages in the employee's department tab.
