  • By company policy: there are a number of days or hours that are granted to all employees. Thus, we define the concept of days/hours per policy, as the total number of days/hours one is entitled to in a specific period.
  • Accrued: accrued days/hours are time-off granted to employees for specific periods that are based on Time-Off Policies. These days will always be reflected in the employees Time-Off Counters, and their calculation will depend on how the company has configured their time off policies.
  • Available: by Available we mean the number of days/hours an employee have at his/her disposal to use. Because there are 2 different ways to configure these available days, one will notice in the counters that these days can be all granted a the beginning of the year or they can be generated on a daily or monthly basis.
  • Taken days: taken days/hours are time off one have enjoyed. This time off will be reflected as taken once the administrator has approved the absence requested.
  • Accumulated or carry over: days/hours that employees can carry over until the next period.
  • Allowance adjustments: these are negative or positive adjustments  that an administrator can make in an employee's time off to grant or subtract days/hours for a specific period.
