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.
