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.
These are configured for your company via the Settings page (Link available in the top right corner of your screen for all admins).
If you have multiple branches in your organization, you can setup different Absences for each branch.
By default the system comes with 3 absences:
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.
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:
If you have defined absences in the Absences module, an absence section will appear for selection in your employees timesheet.
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.
