Time Off Codes

Creating time off codes is as simple as creating Work Codes and is just as important to do within your system. 

To Create Time Off Codes:

First, go to Admin Settings:



Choose Time Off Types/ Codes: 




From there, you will be taken to this screen. 







Time Off Code: The Time Off Code is what is attached to the Time-Off Type and is used for payroll exporting purposes.

Time Buffer to Submit: This buffer is used to exclude people from requesting a certain time-off type up to a certain point. (ie. The cut off to request Time-Off is 1 hour before the start of the shift. If an employee tries to request a specific time-off 30 minutes before shift starts, the request will not go through and the employee will need to contact Admin directly to request that time-off.)

Exclusion Rule: The Exclusion Rule is used to exclude people from Callbacks within a certain time from using a specific time-off type. (ie. If an employee requests and is approved for time off on Tuesday morning, and a Callback goes out for Monday morning, and the Exclusion Rule is set to 24 hours, that employee will be manually excluded from that Callback.)

# Limit/ Employee/ Year: This is used to limit the number of requestable Time-Off's an employee gets in one year.  

Color: The color chosen is indicated on the Crew Scheduler and the employee's Day Planner. 

Text Color: The Text Color chosen is indicated on the Crew Scheduler and the employee's Day Planner. 

Subclasses: This indicated the subclasses list within a certain Time-Off Type.

Requestable: If enabled, an employee can request a Time-Off Type through the 'Request Time-Off' Form. 

Masked: If enabled, all information will be displayed as [MASKED], unless an employee has the permission to view Masked entries. For more information about Masked entries, click here.

Export as Hours Worked: If enabled, this Time-Off Type will export as hours worked, instead of hours off, in exported documents.
