Time off Settings

As of Time Off's release, “Time Off” settings will replace "Holidays" on the settings navigation menu.

The "Time Off" settings page consists of two tabs: (1) Time Off Policies and (2) Holidays.

Under "Time Off Policies", admins can set up custom leave policies according to their company's leave policies and requirements.

Under "Holidays", admins can create holiday calendars to calculate public holiday overtime as well as be notified of their team's upcoming public holidays.

  • You can choose to import all Public Holidays for a specific country, or manually add the holidays yourself.

Time off is added into payroll hours on timesheets and reports.
