Increasingly, small businesses are looking to tools like Timesheet Mobile to track more than just work hours. Sick time and time off tracking is one of those areas.
Timesheet Mobile supports basic tracking of sick time and time off for each individual employee. To credit sick and time off for an employee, use the Control Panel view for the employee as shown below.
In the Employee Details you will find spots to enter credited sick time hours and time off hours. There is also a credit date. This is the date that the hours credited will reset to the initial value. Hours used will be deducted from this total for the annual period commencing on the start date and displayed when adding paid time off (PTO) hours for an employee (see Add Paid Time Off for Vacation Days, Sick Days or Other Codes).
There are two options “On Date" and “Accrual by Pay Period" available to show the available sick time and time off hours. If the admin selected the "On Date" option, then the system would show the total credited sick time and time off hours as available hours that can be used at any time of the year by an employee. If the admin selected the "Accrual by pay period" option, then the total credited sick time and time off hours would be accrued depending on the selection of pay periods (Weekly, Bi-weekly, Twice a month and Month). Employees can use the accrued sick time and time off hours in that particular pay period.
In the above example, the admin has selected the "On date” option for “Time Off Hours” and “Accrual by pay period” option along with the “Weekly” pay period for “Sick hours”. All the "Sick Hours" and "Time off Hours" would be carried forward to the next pay period of the employee, if they didn’t use it in the current period.
See below for an example of how these hours are displayed when adding time off for an employee.
If you allow employees to request time off (see Allow Shift Modification Requests for how to do this) the hours requested and hours available will be displayed in the Pending Shifts in the Reports menu item as shown below.
