Assigning leave balances

In TimeChimp, you can regulate leave. The employee can request it, has insight into his/her balance, and as an administrator you can easily display the leave status of your employee.

To register and monitor leave, there are some basic settings that need to be in place. Previous articles have discussed how to create absence types and how an employee can register on them.

In this articles we focus on adding a start leave balance to the employee. You do this as follows:

  • Go to HRM > employee > end of line employee on the three dots > edit > leave.

  • Enter a start leave balance at + New leave. For example, as of January 1, 20xx, enter a balance of 200 hours with the description "Leave hours 20xx. In this calendar year, the employee can take 200 hours.

  • Add!

  • The same goes for Absence & Overtime which you will find on the left below leave. You can add an overtime balance of absence balance if needed.

It can be that simple! First, add the absence types in management before you can assign them to employees to record on.
