New functionality to override the ‘Absence Type’ name within the Schedule page and the printable schedule.
Release date: Thursday 24th September
Reason for the Change

The new functionality is displayed in the Shift Types settings page.
The following user levels will need to be applied to use this functionality:
- Go to Settings > User Configuration > User Levels
- Select Edit against the required user
- Tick the boxes against View Shift Types and Edit Shift Types
- Scroll down and Save
