You cannot remove the default time off policy since it is required to have at least one time off policy. Therefore, it is recommended to keep the default policy and create additional policies if needed to meet your organization's specific requirements.

If you still need to delete the default policy, set another time off policy as the default before proceeding with the deletion:

  1. Choose the policy you want to set as default
  2. Click on the gear icon
  3. Click on Set as default
  4. Now you are able to remove the previous default time off policy by clicking on the gear icon and choosing to Remove
