We have 13 days over the year that the office is closed and I would like to add this to the “Company Holiday” but it automatically adds 8.0 hours per day to employee timesheets. Is there a way to add this day with zero hours, like a Saturday and Sunday? Or can we set the hours to specific “Company Holiday”?
We haven't made this change yet, but I wanted to understand your requirements a bit more. We have an option that controls whether time off is automatically added for holidays. Would it work for you to disable that? You can add those holidays to the calendar, but time off bookings wouldn't automatically be created for them. This would apply to all holidays in the holiday calendar though.
Here's more information on the option: http://www.replicon.com/help/automatically-generating-holiday-bookings
Let me know if that would work.
Unfortunately that won't work. The day is without pay, the office is closed. If an employee does work this day, the time is then banked. However, Replicon will not bank any time as it has to be over 8 hours before any hours get banked. If I add the day as a "Company Holiday", Replicon automatically adds 8 hours of time to each employee, but this is an unpaid day and should be zero hours. I end up completely lots of manual adjustments to payroll and to Replicon.
Currently, the weekends are our office closures as well. If an employee does work a weekend, the time is automatically banked. I want to be able to add 13 days into our calendar as office closures and treated the same as a weekend.
Hope this explains a bit further.
I'm sorry for the late reply.
Apologies if I'm repeating myself, but want to double check something to make sure I understand. For office closures, you don't want 8 hours automatically added to the timesheet. Are there other days in the holiday calendar that you do want 8 hours automatically added for?
All days in the in Holiday Calendar should be 8 hours added automatically.
Hope that clarifies.
I checked with the PM who original responded to this post. We did have plans to enhance holiday calendars but unfortunately that has moved down the priority list.
I'm checking with the rest of my team to see if there are any other ideas that would help with this. Will let you know once I hear back.
