Time Off Feature

Time Off
WSDN tracks employees' time off, and suggest replacements for their shifts

Work Schedule Dot Net will not only track the time off taken by your employees, but it will tie into the schedule to avoid scheduling any employee when they are off. You will be able to see the shifts you need to fill to replace the employees who are off. Then you can either fill them manually, or by using WSDN's powerful automation features. The manager can easily handle last minute absenteeism for such reasons as illness or emergencies, as well as the planned time like vacation even years ahead of time. Try to schedule an employee who is supposed to be off, and WSDN will let you know!

Time off requests and approvals

Employees can login to WSDN to request time off. The manager will be sent an email notification, and will also see the pending request from the manager's home page. The manager can then approve or decline the request in full, or approve some days and not others. The manager is then warned if necessary about various issues, such as having too many similarly qualified employees off at the same time, the employee not having enough days left, etc. Any time off that is approved is blocked off the schedule in the form of time off blocks, thus reserving the time off for the employee. In addition, the days / hours off can be deducted from the allowed balance using time off accounts.


Tracking days allowed with time off accounts

WSDN offers great versatility in configuring how you track your employee's allowed time off. You can set up time off accounts which work like bank accounts, but with days off instead of money. You can "deposit" days off into them for one or many employees at once, perhaps on January 1st of each year. Then when employees take time off WSDN deducts from their allowed balance. The current balance and days remaining are always visible to both employee and manager. Employees and managers are warned when the allowed time off is almost used up.
