How are lessons charged?
Every lesson that is logged on TutorCruncher will create charges to any clients on that job. The charges are calculated by multiplying the charge rate by the number of units. The units can be set to hours or one-off (per lesson) via the charge type. These charges are added to the client's next invoice after the lesson is marked as complete.
How do I add an extra expense/fee to a lesson?
Extra fees/expenses can be placed on to a lesson using ad hoc charges. To add an ad hoc charge, go to the Activity panel and click the + Add button to the right of Ad Hoc Charges. Fill in the charge's information then click 'Submit'.
Ad hoc charges can be used to charge clients and/or pay tutors. Only clients and tutors on the lesson can be selected on the ad hoc charge. Affiliates can also be added to an ad hoc charge and will take a commission on the client's charge.
