This article describes the process of creating a holiday within the HR module in Workforce Management.
- Go to the HR module
- Select Job Titles from the Company Admin drop-down menu
- Select the Job Title to enter the Holiday allowance from the list
Fig.1 - Select Job Title
The details of the Job Role will appear on the screen.
- Select Edit Default Holidays
Fig.2 - Edit Default Holidays
- Select the relevant General Holiday Settings option
- Enter the Full-Time Equivalent (FTE - what a full-time member of staff would work) in days/hours and shifts
- Enter the Basic Holiday Allowance for a full-time employee
If this is entered incorrectly, it will affect the part-time holidays which are calculated pro-rata from the number entered here. This information should be entered for all job titles on the system.

If employees gain extra holiday days when they have been with the company for a certain number of years, these can be entered within the Job Title settings.
- To do so, select Add Yearly Increment

As well as entering the Holiday for full-time employees, it needs to be entered in the equivalent weeks for flexible employees (if this option is being used). E.g. 28 days allowance equals 5.6 weeks, for 25 days it would be 5 weeks and so on.
Fourth looks at the average number of days going through the Rota for these employees and multiplies this by the weeks Holiday to calculate their allowance. Yearly increments can be added in the same way, however, the increments will need to be added in weeks rather than days.
These settings can also be accessed via the Global Settings. This will show the holiday allowances for all job titles.
Select Global Settings in the Administration drop-down
Select Edit Default Holiday Settings
Select the required Job Title
Select Add Yearly Increment
Enter the required information
