Resource Types and Rates

Resource Types are used to categorize resources in the Resource App. Human resource Rates are set according to resource types. This article will help you learn how to create, name, edit and delete resource types, and establish resource type rates.

How to create a new Resource Type

Select the Company Settings/Resource Types and Rates link;

  • Click on the Add Resource Types and Rates button;
  • Enter the requested data into the fields for the new Resource Type; 
  • Click on the Save button.


All the fields for the creation of a new resource are required. You need to define the Resource type, the Billable rate (rate per hour), and select the Currency type from the dropdown menu. Standard user with rate “0” is the default type.  


How to edit a Resource Type

You can edit any of the Resource Type fields: 

  • Select the resource type you wish to edit;

  • Click the Save button to save changes.


How to delete a Resource Type

To delete a Resource type:
