In Martide you will find a section called Payroll with various functions within it. One of these functions is Wage Scales. This allows you to add different rates of pay for the ranks on each of your vessels. Here’s how to use it.
Where to find Wage Scales
Log into your Martide account and click on Settings under your profile icon and then on Wage Scales:
The Wage Scales page looks like this:
Here you can:
- See your Wage Scales and the vessels they relate to.
- Add a new Wage Scale.
- Edit an existing Wage Scale.
- Delete an existing Wage Scale.
- Copy an existing Wage Scale.
As you can see in our example, we have one Wage Scale for our imaginary vessel, Ryloth.
How to add a new Wage Scale
Click the blue Add Wage Scale button as seen above and below. You will go to this page:
Here you can:
- Enter the name of the Wage Scale.
- Select the vessel or vessels that this Wage Scale applies to from the drop down box.
- Select the currency from the drop down box.
- Enter the Wage Scale’s valid from and to dates.
- Add the ranks on that vessel or vessels.
- Add the Earnings Type that you want to include in the column next to the ranks.
(For more about Earning Types, see this page.)
Now we’re going to create a new Wage Scale:
Now click the Add Rank button at the bottom of the page and you will see this:
Click the plus sign next to each rank to add how many of this rank you have onboard the vessel(s). For example:
Click Add when you’re done. You will see this:
Here you can:
- Add the code for that rank. This is the abbreviation you use for the rank plus a number depending on how many you have of that rank onboard. For example AB-1 and AB-2.
- Delete a rank.
Next you need to add your columns of Earning Types. Click the Add Column button. You will see this pop-up box:
You will see all the different Earning Types you have added to your system. Check the box next to the ones you want to add to this Wage Scale and click Save. You will then see something like this:
You can add more ranks and column / Earning Types at any time.
Now you need to enter your amounts. For example:
When you enter the numbers for salary and other Earning Types, the total is calculated automatically for you. As you can see from our example above, even if you have two of the same rank, you can pay them differently.
Click Save. Your Wage Scale will now appear on the main page:
How to edit a Wage Scale
Click the pen icon next to the Wage Scale you want to edit:
This will open up the same page as before and you can make your changes or add/remove ranks and Earning Types.
You can also export Wage Scale data into an Excel spreadsheet and download it here.
How to copy a Wage Scale
The copy feature is useful if you use the same, or similar, Wage Scales for some of your vessels. It means you don’t have to add all the information for ranks and Earning Types again.
To copy a Wage Scale click the two documents icon to the right of the Wage Scale you want to copy:
For example, we are going to copy our Wage Scale 2. When you click on the documents icon you will see this pop-up box:
Enter the name of your new Wage Scale, for example:
Click Save and you will be taken to your new Wage Scale, in our case, Wage Scale 3 which is a copy of Wage Scale 2:
As you can see, all the info from Wage Scale 2 has been copied over but the name has changed to Wage Scale 3. All you need to do is to add your vessel or vessels that you want to attach this Wage Scale to and - if you need to - make any changes.
Click Save and your copied Wage Scale now appears on the main page:
And that’s it! We hope you find the Wage Scales feature useful and if you’d like to find out more about another Payroll feature, Deduction Types, click here.
