With leave, there are many settings. This guide will provide details on what each of them do.
Please note, you must be an admin to view these settings.
Leave Site Settings
Settings changed here apply to all users using the Leave module.
Admin > Site Settings > Payroll > Leave
Split Into Pay Periods - If a leave request spans more than 1 pay period, it will split into a request per pay period.
Leave Type List -Entries on this setting will display as a drop down option to choose what type of leave request is being submitted. Click within the box and either type in a new leave type or choose from existing options.
Note: The leave type that is chosen will post to USPS based on the first 2 characters of the Leave Type name. For example, Sick will post as (SI) Sick in USPS. If we use something custom that is not a Leave type in USAS, it will post as OT (Other)
Hourly Increments - If the user benefit type in USPS is hourly, it will display these choices for the user when submitting Leave Requests in MySCView. Typically quarterly increments are used. (.00 .25 .50 .75)
Use Time Entry - Uses a start and finish time for when user placing leave.
Use 'Partial Time' Time Entry - Gives a start time and decimal for selection of how long leave will be. Will go based off of start time selected + decimal secltion.
