Calculate Overtime and Rates

ProjectStream 365 can automatically calculate overtime as well as apply changes to rates (Prevailing Wage and user specific rates) to existing timesheet records.  Overtime calculations automatically calculate when a user submits their timesheet.  Overtime hours usually calculate according to standard rules, such as over 40 hours for a week.  Timesheet approvers or Project Managers have the option of re-assigning which timesheet detail records incur the overtime hours vs regular hours.
