Cost center inheritance

Updated 1 month ago by Leigh Hutchens

In Quinyx, it's possible to select a cost center manually on shifts and punches. This is a way of overriding the automatic cost center inheritance logic that's applied when extracting salary files or reports. The automatically inherited cost center is also visible in Schedule items in the Time card.

If the punch is connected to a shift and cost center has not been selected manually on the punch, cost center should be inherited from the first hierarchical entity on which it has been defined, in this order:

  • The cost center selected on the shift
  • The section the shift belongs to
  • The unit the shift belongs to
  • The employee (as specified in the employee card)
  • The section the employee belongs to
  • The unit the employee belongs to
  • The region the employee belongs to

If the punch is not connected to a shift, cost center should be inherited in this order:

  • The employee (as specified in the employee card)
  • From the unit the punch belongs to, through the employee
  • The section the employee belongs to
  • The unit the employee belongs to
