Can you enter leave into timesheets in the employee portal by choosing the work type rather than via a leave request?

We are using timesheets and staff are currently entering their normal hours and any TOIL accrued directly into the timesheet via the employee portal.  Any leave (annual leave, personal leave, TOIL) taken is applied for via the 'request leave' option. Some staff are finding this challenging, so I have a question... If the staff member uses the drop down box and chooses the work type RATHER than applying for leave (e.g. they choose 'Annual Leave Taken' in the drop down box instead of actually applying for annual leave via a leave request), will this adjust their leave balances correctly?

Hi alisoncplatt, 

 

Thank you for reaching out. In this case, no, as using the Leave Category Work Type in a Timesheet will accrue leave rather than take leave. 

 

Please see here for more information on how Work Types affect Timesheets. 

 

The options would be to use Leave Requests or enter the Leave Taken manually into the Pay Run. 

 

Please let me know if you have any other questions. 

 

Thanks, 

Rebecca

Hi Rebecca

Thanks for responding so quickly!

I suspected that might be the case so I will just persevere with fixing the incorrect entries as and when they occur...  :)
