Set and adjust roles

Rillsoft Project allows you to define roles in a flexible way, because you can set different quality ranks with graded cost rates for roles. We recommend you to define roles in a way that allows you to manage them in groups. You should define a group for each of the roles individually (example: floor tiler, carpenter, …)

Enter the qualification and corresponding cost rate directly in the group (example: carpenter - foreman, master, craftsman, apprentice, etc.).

In order to set and adjust roles, do as follows:

  • Select the menu item Start > Properties > Resource.

The dialogue box Resource pool opens.

  • Select the tab Roles.


  • Create a new group by clicking on the button New group or on the row that is marked with an asterisk (*), enter a new group name in the column Role.

  • Enter a specific role in this group in the row (column Qualification).

  • You can enter more qualification ranks in the empty row below in the column Qualification, which copies the group name automatically. Note: To change the role name, you need to do this in the first group row, which automatically transfers the group name to all the other saved qualification ranks.

  • Enter a specific value in the column Code to exchange data with other applications.

  • Enter the costs per hour in the field Costs.

  • After a particular date, you can enter either a coefficient for an existing unit price or a new unit price per hour and role in the field Cost adjustment.

  • If necessary, enter a note in the field Notes.

  • Click on the button OK.
