Note: This only applies to employees working fixed hours.
Step 1: Specify hours per day
To change a user's holiday units from days to hours, you first need to navigate to
Management > Holidays > Holiday entitlements, find the user and where it says "Days" in the holiday units column, select "Amend". Doing this will take you to a wizard which walks you through the process.
When you change a user's holiday units from days to hours, the annual entitlement, remaining entitlement and next year's bookings will be converted to hours.
In order to make the change, you need to work through the wizard with the relevant data to hand.
In this example, the current f/t entitlement for the year is 25 days.
In order to convert this to hours, please enter the applicable hours per day you would like to use.
Note: You will be able to override the calculations for holiday taken or booked later in the wizard.
Step 2: Convert days to hours
Clicking submit converts days to hours and displays the results in the next screen.
Step 3: Manually edit history holiday bookings
The next screen allows you the opportunity to override holiday hours. A possible scenario for wanting to change values here is if you had an employee whose holidays were measured in days. If on a day they were working only 2 hours but got the day off, you could manually override 8 hours for 1 day, and enter 2 hours as a length for that day. The employee only gets 2 hours deducted from their entitlement instead of 8 hours.
