Each of these have subsequent screens, indicated by the > symbol at the end of each row.
The details appearing on each screen have been pre-populated from the Employee Defaults that you setup initially during the BiYP Business Setup.

Tap the Hourly Rate if you wish to change the default amount and enter the rate you wish to pay this employee.
This is known at the Ordinary Times Earnings (OTE) for this employee and will be the Default Pay Item used in each Pay Run.
If this employee is based on an Annual Salary, simply divide the annual amount by 1,976 to determine the Hourly Rate.
Example: The employee is on an annual salary of $100,000 so their hourly rate would be $100,000/1,976 = $50.607287
The annual hours is based on 38 hours per week X 52 = 1,976.
Note: Your hourly rate can be up to six numbers after the decimal point.
Tap the Default Hours Per Week if you need to update the default amount. If the employee you are adding is Full Time, the hours per week is commonly 38.
Default Hours Per Week can be up to four numbers after the decimal point.
