Module: Absences

The Absences module will help you define the different absence types offered for selection in your employees timesheets.
If no absence types are defined in the system, the absences list will not be shown in the timesheet.

This module is available in the Settings screen of your account.

Define the Absences

By default the system comes with 3 absences: 
  • Holidays
  • Leave
  • Sickness
You can rename or add other absences.

To rename existing ones, just click on the absence name and change the name in the Absence Details module.

Deactivate/Delete Absences

By deactivating an absence you will be able to prevent anyone to use it in their timesheets while keeping all historical records where the absence was used.
Deleting the absence is only possible when no record has been stored on this absence. If records exist and you still want to delete the absence, you have to delete the records first.

To deactivate/delete an absence:
  1. Go with the mouse over the task, and click Display
  2. Under the Absence Details module, click on Deactivate, then Delete forever

Use Absences in Timesheets

If you have defined absences in the Absences module, an absence section will appear for selection in your employees timesheet.

Absence Quotas

Additionally, you can define absence quotas for each absence type and for a specific date range.
Absence quotas help you control the number of absences remaining for each of your employee.

Please refer to the Absence Quotas documentation for the configuration.
