  4. When the Employee Leave screen appears, select the drop-down list immediately to the right of the New button. This displays a list of the employees that are a part of your HR program.

  6. Select the desired employee's name, and then choose the New button to insert a new leave row in the table.
  7. Move to the Leave cell and then click on the downward arrow to display a list of leaves that have been defined for your HR program.

  8. No Available Leaves? If you do not see any leaves in this drop down list, it is because none have yet been added in the HR Leaves screen (accessible from the Employer HR - Leaves menu command). Refer to the Create an HR Leave tutorial for further details.

    Example: In Fig. 03 below, we see a number of available leaves that can be assigned to the current employee. These leaves were added earlier in the Create an HR Leave tutorial.
    Fig. 03: The Leaves cell shows the available leaves that can be scheduled for the current employee.

  9. Click on the leave type that you wish to assign. This closes the drop down menu and displays your selection in the Leave cell.
  10. Move to the Type cell and enter text that indicates the leave's classification or category. This cell is optional, but can be useful if you wish to categorize the leave based on your company's existing classification structure.
  11. Move to the Required Date cell and use the Calendar icon to define the date on which the leave will begin.
  12. If you are recording an historical leave (one that has already been taken), then move to the Completion Date cell and use the Calendar icon to define the date on which the incident was resolved. If the leave has not yet been taken, you can leave this cell blank for now.
  13. Click on the downward arrow in the Status cell, and then choose an option to designate the employee's current status for the leave (Required or Completed). When you make your choice, the drop down menu closes and displays your selection in the cell.
  14. Move to the Details cell and click on the Enter hyperlink. This opens a window that allows you to enter detailed information about the leave.
  15. Enter the leave type's details as needed. You can use the formatting bar to change the font size, color, etc. You can also paste content into the window from another program (word processor, email, etc.).
    Example: In Fig. 04 below, we have entered an template form that can be filled in each time an employee requests a work leave.

  18. Select the Documents button to open a window where you can attach documents and files that pertain to the current work leave. This can include PDFs, word processing documents, spreadsheets and images.

    Example: In our example below, we see several documents that relate to the employee's current and historical leaves.

  24. Repeat the preceding steps to schedule additional employee leaves as needed.
    Example: In Fig. 08 below, we have assigned work leaves to three of our sample employees. Some are upcoming and some are completed.

To Schedule Multiple Leaves for an Employee

If you wish to schedule multiple leaves for your employees, you can do so easily.

  1. In the Employee - Leave screen, select the drop-down list immediately to the right of the New button to display the list of employees.
  2. Select the name of the person to whom a second leave will be scheduled, and then choose the New button. This inserts a sub row under the selected employee's existing leave row.
  3. Fig. 09: A second leave sub row has been added to an employee.
