Precise Leave Tracking
Precise Leave Tracking allows you to log half-day absences for staff members thereby providing more flexibility for recording changes to staff schedules and a more detailed overview of past absence.
How to Enable Precise Leave Tracking
To enable this feature go to Settings → Staff→ Staff Leave. Please read the disclaimer below before enabling this for your setting.
Disclaimer: Note that staff leave balances will be impacted from the moment of turning on the feature until the leave cycle is over. For example, if your holiday period is from Jan-Dec and you turn on the feature on September 1, the leave balances shown on staff profiles will be from Sept 1 to Dec 31 only and will not show the days from Jan 1-Aug 31. This may mean that you'll want to wait until the end of your leave period before enabling this feature.
Note this feature is only available to US Premium customers and those on Essentials with Staff Rotas. For UK packages message email@example.com to find out if yours includes it- read more about pricing here.
