When an employee is away due to illness, training, etc., they should be able to easily login and indicate "Absent - ill" or Absent - training" or Absent - vacation, whatever. Currently we have made up jobs called "Absent" and tasks" called ill. Also, they should not have to indicate a time frame if it is all day.
Hey everyone, thanks for sharing your comments, feedback, and votes for this idea!
It is starting to kind of combine a couple different ideas into one so I just wanted to get some more information.
First to Justin’s point, this is definitely possible with our PTO/sick time features. The employees could request the day off sick and be able to see how much sick time they have left directly from the mobile app or the website. When requesting this time off, a card is placed on both the timesheets and schedule automatically.
But for Stacey’s original idea, it sounds like you are wanting a “sticky note” kind of feature. With this you would be able to write a note of any type and place it on the timesheet without any time associated with it. Does that sound right? And would this be an admin only option or a permission you could give employees also? Thanks for the additional information!

JT, are you planning on adding a "stick note" feature, because that would be very helpful
Justin Rolle commented
if it could also deduct from an employees PTO policy as well so they could automatically see the time they have taken off and whats left

The ability to add a placecard to the schedule to show an employee is off today and a note field to state the reason.
