Release Notes: Half Day Leaves

We recently release a new feature for the leave management app that will allow employees to apply for Half day leaves.

Applying for a Leave

Applying for a half day leave is the same as applying for a regular leave except the half day Leaves option is only available for 1 day leave requests. If the start and then end date of the leave request do not match then you will not be able to apply for half day leave.

The only difference is that you will need to choose if you want to take the first half of the day or the second half of the day off.

Half day leave set up

There are a few things you will need to do to set up your account to make use of the half day leave feature.

To turn on the Half day leave feature.

  1. Got to the setting tab in the Leave Management app.
  2. Click on Settings
  3. Check Allow applying for half day leaves

Setting up Shift Middles

In the leave management app you can set the time of day that the system will use as the middle of the shift. This feature is especially important if your company has specific times that they want the middle of a shift to be.

Note: if a shift middle is not set or the employee has a custom schedule on that day the approver will have to choose the middle shift time when they are approving the leave. Similarly if you have Auto approve leaves on and the shift middle is not set the leave request will be flagged as needing approval and the approver will need to set the shift middle.

To set your shift middles

  1. Go to your setting tab in the leave management app.
  2. Click on Shift Middles
  3. Enter the time that you want the middle of the shift to be and click Save
