Book a 2h timeoff for a time period

Some of my users need to book timeoffs for a long period of time, namely breastfeeding that allows them to take up to 2h timeoff per day.

Since they need to book this timeoff for a long period of time I was wondering if is any setting that allows them to book it in a given date and time ranges, for example, all the days from February to May, from 16h00 till 18h00? I know that for full days or half days periods it is possible, but not for Partial Day Off.

Please look at the following example:

I want to book a timeoff from the 09th till the 13th, 5 days, 2h per day, expecting a total of 10h (1.25 days).
Replicon books 2h + 8h + 8h + 8h +2h = 3.5 days.

Thanks for any help.

I am so agreeing with this request also for our company.  Not only for our offices which have breastfeeding leave but also for sick leave.  Some times we have staff who have treatments each afternoon and it would be much easier to enter this accross multiple days instead of day by day.

This used to not be a problem when we could enter some leave directly into the timesheet without requesting it...but since that change it has been a bit more tedious.

Hi Lisa/Nuno,

I agree with both of you, currently if you had to book 2hrs Time Off everyday it will need to be done one day at a time. I am marking this as an idea and are reviewing the same.

I agree with Nuno and Lisa.  We found this in our testing and it is very time consuming for the person who is booking the time.  If you can just add each date between Start and End so that they can book the time as either whole days or partial days accordingly that would be very helpful.

I have this problem as well.  Staff request partial day off for an extended period of time, and they'll have to submit booking each time, that's so inconvenient for them.  System should be more user friendly rather than adding more work for them.

Hi All,

Thanks for your feedback. We are looking at redesigning the Time Off Booking dialog to help users more quickly book partial days across multiple days. 

Best, Karen
