Give your time off type a Name. This is what employees will use to identify their time off type when making a request. Administrators will also be able to choose this time off type when assigning time off to an individual. A Time Off Code can be entered if necessary. This code will appear when exporting payroll. Each time off type will have 8 Hours in a Work Day by default. If your company tracks a full day differently, this value can be edited. This number is used to show how much time off in hours is taken for each employee when full days are taken off.
