After completing this lesson, you will be able to:

  • Explain what a Rate represents in an SAP Fieldglass Rate Structure.
  • Navigate a Rate admin object.
  • Create a Rate in SAP Fieldglass.


Rate constitutes the amount or percentage assigned to a particular rate category. It acts as the basis for all other associations that drive cost calculations in SAP Fieldglass.

When the rate structure is associated to a job posting template, the rates themselves can appear on the job posting. How the rates display is again dependent upon the rate type. The actual rates that appear are based on a number of factors, such as the position the job posting is for, the site, and even the supplier.

Rates appear in the Accounting section of a job posting.

Navigating the Rate Admin Object

Select the Rate admin object from the Rate Structure section of the admin menu to view the list of rates that WorkingNet uses.

Create a Rate

WorkingNet is creating a new Customer Support position for their London Office. It will need a new rate structure in SAP Fieldglass in order to accommodate the regional characteristics of a UK-based workforce.

As the SAP Fieldglass administrator for WorkingNet, you’re tasked with creating that rate structure.

This new position requires 24/7 coverage, so you’ve created 2 new rate categories—"CS Night" for the night shift and "CS Morning" for the morning shift—to accommodate premiums paid for those shifts.

With those established, you’ll have to create the rates for all of WorkingNet’s relevant supplier, site, and category combinations for the new customer support role. You’ll start by creating the base rate for the position.
