Add a time-off plan

You can add a time-off plan from the time-off plans page. You can have up to 250 time-off plans per management unit.

  1. Click Admin.
  2. Under Workforce Management, click Time-Off Plans.
  3. In the upper right corner, click the Management Unit list and then click the management unit to which to add the time-off plan.
  4. Click Add. The Add Time-Off Plan page opens.
  5. In the Time-Off Plan Name box, type a descriptive name for the time-off plan.
  6. In the Activity Code Associations section, click Edit. The Edit Activity Code Association dialog box opens.
  7. In the Available column, do the following:
    • To associate an activity code to the time-off plan, click the activity code.
    • To search for an activity code to associate to the time-off plan, in the Search for time-off codes box, begin typing the activity code and then click it in the results.
    • To add all available activity codes to the time-off plan, click Add All.
    • To remove an activity code from the time-off plan, in the Selected column, click the activity code to remove.
    • To remove all activity codes from the time-off plan, click Remove All.
    • Click OK.
      Note: You can only associate an activity code to a single time-off plan. If you select an activity code that already ties to another plan, the system removes the activity code from the other plan.
    1. Under Rules, to ensure that time-off requests with the selected activity codes count against the time-off limit, enable the Count Against Time-Off Limit check box.
      Note: If you do not set time-off limits for the selected management unit, this check box is not available.
    2. Under Auto Approval Rule, do one of the following:
      • To ensure that the auto-approval rule never applies to time-off requests that use the selected activity codes, click Never. Choosing this option requires you to approve time-off requests associated to the selected activity codes manually.
      • To ensure that the the auto-approval rule always applies to time-off requests that use the selected activity codes, click Always. Choosing this option causes the system to auto-approve all time-off requests, even when they exceed the remaining time-off limit on the requested time-off dates.
      • To apply the auto-approval rule to time-off requests according to the time-off limit, do the following:
        1. Click According to time-off limit.
        2. Use the Days Before Start to Expire from Waitlist arrows to set the number of days before the time-off request starts, to expire the request from the waitlist. When the requests expire, the system changes the status to “Pending – Waitlist window closed.”
          Note: This option is only available when you set the Count Against Time-Off Limit toggle to On.
    3. Click Save.
