Absence types are the reasons (e.g. vacation, sick leave) that employees specify when reporting or scheduling an absence.
The predefined absence types cover most common cases, but you can edit them or create new types to better reflect your organization's policies.
On the main menu, click Administration and choose Absence Types.
The existing absence types will be listed.
To create a new absence type, click New type.
To edit en existing type, click next to it.
Type in the type's name and a short informative description (optional).
Choose a relevant icon to illustrate the type.
Available — changes the icon color from red to green and indicates that the person can be contacted while absent. By checking this option you preset it to "available". One can override it when reporting an absence.
Approval required — if selected, this absence will require approval from the Team Lead.
Click Add or Save when done.
