Display Time Off in terms of unbooked days rather than Time Off that has been taken

Time Off time remaining is displayed very confusingly in terms of time that has not yet been taken, rather that time off that has not yet been booked (as of a selected date). There should be an option in Replicon to display a time off type as hours/days remaining that have not been allocated. For example - my profile in Replicon has 22.88 days of annual leave 'remaining' from today, according to the Time Off tool. I interpret that as saying I have 22.88 days left to book. That is not true, because I actually have booked 18 of those days for the future. So how am I supposed to know how many days I have left to 'book' from a certain date? It doesn't seem to make sense.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled TimeOff remaining.

When booking a time off, the "days that will remain" information does not take into consideration future time off bookings. This leads a user to think that they may have more time off days remaining than what they actually have.

This is also very confusing to our users and is often mistaken. 

Also, these figures only relate to the current policy. If you have annual policies the user cannot see the next years balance

This is something that our company would like to have incorporated for the same reasons expressed by other users. Any update on status of its implementation?

Thanks,

Hi All, 

We are currently in the midst of re-designing and developing some changes to how we display data on the booking dialog. I think the changes will help address the issues you are talking about. 

Thanks, Karen

On testing this, noticed that the "As of ..." line doesn't change when the "Start" date is altered e.g. Set Start date to be 01/12/2016 -> The "As of ..." line reflects the date. Then change the Start date to 20/11/2016 and the "As of ...." line remains displaying Dec 1, 2016.

A wee bug I think!

Hi Ann,

I am not able to reproduce this. Is this still happening to you?

I have checked this issue and it is still a bug.

To reproduce:-

1. Select "Book Time Off" and the start date and "As of..." line defaults to todays date e.g. 9th April 2018

2. Change the start date to a future date e.g. 30th April 2018 and the "As of...." line changes to this date also

3. Change the start date to a slightly earlier date e.g. 16th April 2018. The "As of..."line remains with the 30th April 2018.
