You may want to keep track of what kind of Leave or Sickness your employees take. You can configure different Leave or Sickness Types so that when employees are making requests they can select the appropriate Leave or Sickness Type.
Leave Types are also required when creating Multiple/Custom Allowances.
To configure Leave/Sickness types you will need to go to Process Config (in the Higher level menu) > Leave Configuration and click on Leave Types or Sickness Types
You can import the default leave types we provide, by clicking on the Add defaults button
To create your own Leave Type, you will need to click on the Create button
You will be taken to a new page, where you will be able to configure a new leave type.
- Enter the name, comments (optional) and select an icon.
- If the leave type is to be deducted from the allowance, then you will be required to select Yes from Deducted Leave? (These leave types that have been configured as deducted leave will appear in the list for custom allowances in the Leave Profile). When a user makes a request for this leave type, it will make a deduction from their Annual Allowance or from a Custom Allowance if one is set up for this leave type. Please note Sickness Types do not have this option.
- You can also optionally enter what detail users should enter when making a request of this leave type in the Request Detail field. This should be kept short and in a single line as it is displayed in the Request Dialog. Large amounts of text would not be able to fit
When you are done click on the Save button at the top right corner.
To delete a Leave type, click on the box next to it in the list and click on 'Delete', as highlighted below:
To edit an existing Leave Type, simply click on its name and you will be taken to its the configuration page. Do not forget to click on Save when you are satisfied with your edits.
