Assigning leave to an employee.

There are two ways to assign leave to an employee, from the schedule view or the calendar view.

Assigning leave to an employee from the schedule view.

This method of assigning leave is particularly handy when assigning leave to an employee who is scheduled for work, think of sick leave for instance. When you right-click on a shift that has an employee assigned to it, you'll notice the option 'add leave'.

When you click on 'add leave', Workfeed will immediately correspond the leave window with the date and person of the shift (you can change this if you want). From here you can also identify what type of leave should be assigned (sickness, vacation, or another custom leave type). Furthermore, you can determine whether the leave should be 'paid' or 'unpaid' and you can add an optional note before finalizing by clicking 'add leave'.

Assigning leave from the calendar view.

The calendar view can be accessed in two different ways, by clicking on 'leave' in the menu on the top-left of the screen or by clicking on the availability list '๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Ž' at the top-left of the schedule view.

In the calendar, you can create leave for any employee by clicking on a day in the calendar. After clicking on a day, you can start creating the leave by selecting the person, date range, and leave type. Furthermore, you can determine whether the leave should be 'paid' or 'unpaid' and you can add an optional note before finalizing by clicking 'add leave'.

When you open the availability list by clicking on '๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Ž' at the top-left of the schedule view, you can create leave for any employee by clicking on a day next to their name. After clicking on a day, you can start creating the leave by selecting the person, date range, and leave type. Furthermore, you can determine whether the leave should be 'paid' or 'unpaid' and you can add an optional note before finalizing by clicking 'add leave'.
