How to use Absence Calendar?

The Absence calendar will help you keep track of when your employees have sick days, business trips, or vacations. It is an efficient tool to see how many days each user has spent away from the office and how many days of vacation should they take in the summer.

If you want your team members to view the Absence Calendar section, make sure that in Settings → Account, the checkbox Hide the absence calendar is not checked.

Add descriptions for the selected absence type in the description box. The absence description will be visible on the My DeskTime page and in the exports together with the absence.

It is also possible to add half-day absences or for any necessary amount of hours by adjusting the time:

If a user adds an absence through the Absence calendar, before the "Away time" is added to his/her schedule, the company owner or an admin has to approve the absence.
