The absence report can be found under a staff member's profile under absences and shows you details of that staff member's absences both past and ongoing.
Understanding the Absence Report
The absence report will show you all instances of absence and how they are processed within the policy phases. You also have quick access to edit an absence or add an absence from the Actions menu.
You can manually set absences by the hour rather than just by days or half days*. You can specify how long the day is that the staff member was off for and how much of a deduction should then be reported. This can be manually input when editing an absence, which can be reached via a staff member’s profile, under their absence tab. From here click to go into the absence report and choose to edit the absence period.
You can manually set to how long the day is that the staff member was off for and how much of a deduction should then be reported. This can be managed when editing an absence.
Previously, you couldn't specify if staff were off for an hour, instead you would have to mark them as absent the whole day. With the new update you are able to set absences even if they are just an hour.
You have the option here to specify the hour they left and the hour they returned, ensuring specificity when calculating deductions.
Then, back to the absence report under duration you can see the affected days, and what that is in hours as well.
The absences will also automatically be used to calculate the staff member’s Bradford Factor:
*It is worth noting that if you prefer to round up absences you are able to make adjustments in Global Settings under the Staff tab. Under absences you can choose to round.
