There is a holiday calendar view that can display any combination of staff holidays (casual, permanent, venue staff etc). Absences are also included under this calendar, i.e. for sickness leave.
This can be found under Reports > Staff Reports > Absence Calendar.
Each holiday will be shown as a coloured bar across the page; the colour is taken from the staff member’s default role so you can see how the roles crossover.
Absences that are still ‘open’ are shown with a dotted line to indicate that they are ongoing. This will change automatically once the staff member has returned or indicated when they will be returning.
Viewing your Holiday/Absence Calendar
You can also set viewing and altering the absence calendar to restricted personell by managing permissions. This will allow staff to view the absence calendar without access to manage absences of any staff.
You can also restrict access to the absence category and reason by enabling the privacy option within the absence type.
You can filter by absence type as well, which can be helpful when looking for absences or TOIL requests specifically. These have all been colour coded to simplify visibility.
The calendar view also shows the time of day the request starts and finishes so you can see who is available at any one time and if there is a period when staff are not available.
