Time Off Policy - Allow for Multiple, Inconsecutive Days in Single Request
When submitting a time off request, it currently only allows for a date range. It would be convenient to allow for a selection of multiple days (i.e. Friday, Monday & Tuesday -- and exclude the weekend, since they are not working days for us).
At the time, the only way around it is to submit two separate requests. One for Friday, and one for Monday & Tuesday. Issue being that most of our field guys only submit a single request for Friday - Tuesday, which appears logical to them, but accounts for Saturday & Sunday -- which again, are not working days for us.
For Unpaid Time Off it is not much of an issue; but the request has to be resubmitted when it is for Sick/Vacation time, in order to accurately account for the hours used & remaining.
Hey there Nisael, thanks for sharing your feedback and idea with us!
First of all, this is definitely a good idea I know lots of people would benefit from.
It is currently possible when creating a request and selecting the “partial days” option. This allows you to select a half-day one day, full day the next, no hours the next day, etc. See the attached image.
However, we are in the process of adding a better experience for this. In the future, if the request spans the weekend we’ll have a “exclude weekends” option that will do all this for you. So that is something we’ll be adding. I can keep you up to date when the work starts on it.
