For every worker registered in AGRIVI, a work cost can be assigned. This cost can be:
- The same for every worker (navigate to Resources → People → and click "Set work cost," checking the "Set for all workers" box to assign a homogenous cost for every worker)
- Different for every worker (navigate to Resources → People → and click the Options icon → "Edit" beside the worker whose cost you'd like to set, navigating to the "Work Cost" tab in their user details to enter their cost)
Whether setting the work cost for every employee at once or just one employee, you have the option to:
- Set the same cost for every task all at once (enter the work cost in the "All Categories" field); or
- Assign different costs for specific tasks (selectively enter costs in each activity category (e.g. Harvesting, Planting); not all categories need to have a defined cost).
When setting costs, the "Cost type" refers to how workers are paid, whether it be per hour, per surface area (ha or ac), per quantity harvested, or per plant. Each category can only have one cost type, though this cost type can be changed whenever.
You also have the option to change the currency with which you'd like to track costs.
Once you have defined work costs for your employees, remember to save your progress. Every work cost you define will automatically be visible within each crop production task and included in financial calculations.
