  1. Set up a leave policy

    2. At least one policy should be live for adding a time off record.

    3. Click on +Policy button to add a new time off policy.

    4. A time off policy can be either of the type Paid, Unpaid or Holiday Pay.

      Policies of the type HOLIDAY PAY are visible to the admins only to allocate holiday pay to all team members.

    5. When a Team Member Group is NOT selected when adding or updating a policy, it is applicable to all the team members.

    6. If a Team Member Group is assigned to a time off policy, then it can be used to create a time off record for team members assigned to the particular group only.

  2. Add a time off record

    1. Admins can create a time off record for any team member in the organization.

    2. Managers can create a time off record for:

      1. All the team members in the organization IF they have access to All time cards in the organization.

      2. Only the team members assigned to them IF they have Restricted time card access. Learn more about manager permissions here.

    3. To create a time off record including holiday pay, go to Time Cards dashboard and click on +Time Off button from the newly added Time Off tab as shown below.

    4. Select one or multiple team members or select a team member group to add time off records for multiple team members in bulk.
