This document will provide you with the details on how to make changes to existing placements. All changes made are recorded as Placement Admins. Users should always check if placement admins or timesheets already exist before attempting to make changes. If the vacancy has existing timesheets that have been completed and vacancy details need amending that will affect those timesheets please contact your admin user / support. If the vacancy has not started there should not be any placement admins. Placement admins are listed newest first.

Prerequisites

a) Users will need to have the correct permissions to delete placement admin records.

b) User making changes must be the authoriser of the placement (unless you have placement authoriser functionality turned off – call for more details).

If you are not the authoriser please either get the original authoriser to make the changes or first get them to un-authorise the placement.

Changing Placement End Date

Below is a list of instructions for extending / finishing placements based on the current status of the placement i.e. whether it has started or not, whether there are existing placement admins or not.

You will notice that we do not recommend using the update dates / update rates / update shifts links on the placement page. This is for advanced users once you understand the principles below.

NOTE: Timesheets do not affect extending placements other than the case when the placement has not yet started and you can edit the dates without creating a placement admin (see below). However in this case timesheets really should not exist yet. When extending a placement that has started you should go into the timesheets tab and create any missing timesheets for the new period. When shortening a placement that has started you should go into the timesheets tab and remove any surplus timesheets.

Changing Rates against Placement

If timesheets exist and the placement rates need changing then the user may need to delete affected timesheets. If those timesheets have been completed/authorised please contact admin user / support. If the placement has started and rates are being changed half way through their placement then only delete timesheets created after that date and then re-create them. They will then display the new rate. If a rate is changed mid-week then a user will need to delete and re-create timesheets after that date but also create an additional timesheet for that week to be able to complete the days with the new rates.

For all the following examples we’ve assumed timesheets do exist. If they don’t, then just ignore those instructions.
