In this article we will go through how, as a staff member, you are able to add Time off in Lieu (TOIL) and then how to claim TOIL back as well. We will guide you through this simple step by step process.
To add a TOIL request you will first need to go to your profile page. Once there you will see a tab - which will say TOIL. Click this tab.
Once you click in here you can add a new TOIL request. So, for example if you have worked extra time in lieu you would simply add in the hours that you have worked. You might also include a a note from the manager on the event so so it is clear to them what they are approving, then save.
Once that’s saved you can see that this has then come through onto your profile. In this example there is auto approval from my manager, but you might need to wait for that to be approved and until it is, that notification will sit there.
Viewing your TOIL history
If you then click again to add a request, you will see there is now options for the next time you want to add or take the toil because there is now some history of TOIL here.
So you can either claim your toil back or add in some more. We for now are just going to add in some more so you can see how toil starts to build. Then you can save. Now you can see we are building up a pot of toil, and again for this example this is auto approved.
Claiming Back TOIL
Now, to claim back TOIL there is a slightly different process. You’re going to click on the TOIL request again and then click one of the ‘CLAIM AGAINST’ buttons and claim back some toil.
When you want to claim TOIL back you have to put it against a specific set of hours, so you can choose which set of hours to claim back.
Once you have claimed these hours you can then see that’s come out of your set.
