Updates to the Absence module:

Show spending period on employee absence account

You can now see the Spending period for your employees' absence accounts when editing their accounts.

The Edit absence account page can be accessed from Schedule > Absence accounts > edit an employee's account, and from People > Employees > edit an employee > Absence > edit an account.

Coming soon: Soon you will also be able to edit each individual employee's Spending period.

History tab on employee absence account

When editing an employee's absence account, we have added a History tab in the top left corner.

The history will show information about the creation of the account and the last changes made to the account.

  • Modified: Date and time the last changes were made

  • Modified by: Who made the last changes

  • Created: Date and time the account was created

  • Created by: Who created the account

Modify the Start balance for Carry-over accounts

When an Account type is set to allow carry-over to the next period, a Carry-over account is created with the days/hours carried over from the previous period.

You are now able to modify the Start balance of these accounts.

This can be done from Schedule > Absence accounts > edit an employee's Carry-over account, and from People > Employees > edit an employee > Absence > edit a Carry-over account.

Create fixed and accrued absence accounts from the same Account type

When creating a new Absence account type from Settings > Absence, Overtime, Vacation > Account types > Create, you can now select the account type called Absence account when creating both accrued and fixed accounts.

In this account type, you will find more setup options available than in the previous setup of fixed absence accounts.

To create an accrued absence account type for your employees, select the desired unit (days or hours) for the account type and use the fields Accruing rate and Amount to set the correct accruing rate for your employees.

To create a fixed absence account type for your employees, select the unit (days or hours) for the account type, use the Start balance field to set the fixed amount of days or hours your employees should receive each period, and select Do not use in the field for Accruing rate.

The value set in the Start balance field will be the balance in the employees' absence accounts when each Accruing period starts.

Account status filter for Time off in lieu accounts

To get a better overview of the active and inactive Time off in lieu accounts, you can now use the new filter on the right side of the screen.

The Time off in lieu accounts can be found under Schedule > Absence accounts > Time off in lieu accounts.
