What is the absence group policy?

The absence group policy is used when you wish to limit the number of employees who can request absence for the same dates. By setting a policy, you can restrict individual teams, locations or departments so that only the specified number of employees can be absence concurrently.

To set the policy, go to Administration > Absence Group Policy. On the page shown, enter the maximum number of concurrent absentees in the required teams, locations and/or departments and click “Save Policies” to store the changes.

If an employee attempts to request an absence that would breach the policy, a warning will be shown explaining which policy they are breaching and they will not be able to submit a request.

Note: Policies do not affect whether an administrator can add an absence directly to an employee record.
