Leave types are used to request a leave.
To each type of leave, you can assign a few options:

  • Reporting code: Code that is used when sending to the payroll
  • Negative allowance: Balance may go below 0 (e.g. overtime)
  • Only visible to the chief: Only the chief can grant this type of leave, the staff can not request this themselves
  • Due date: To which calendar day can this type of leave be taken or in other words for which date the leave must be taken
  • Expires next year: If checked, can take this leave until a calendar day in the following year (e.g. April 1st next year)
  • Balance management: A balance is kept for this type of leave, e.g. a balance can not be kept  for sickness or indicative leave

You can add a new leave type by following these steps:

  1. Go in the menu to Management - Settings.
  2. Click on the tab 'Holiday types'.
  3. Click on 'Add a holiday type'.
  4. Fill in the data in the pop-up. 

Hint: 'Indicative leave' is used by many clients for employees that don't have annual leave. They can use this to indicate when they can't work.

Attention: you need admin rights to set this up.
