I have been trying to request for the future time off balances that are booked and approved to show in the employee's balance when they log in because it doesn't right now. They don't know how many days they have available right now

Hi, Megan -
Do you happen to know what type of Schedule is assigned to your employees (under Schedule in their user profiles)?
If it's "SHIFT SCHEDULE" type, then they must have actual shifts assigned to their schedules on the given day they are taking off, otherwise, the booking calculates to 0 and balances will be incorrect.
Only if they are assigned an "Office Schedule" (such as 8 hours a day M-F) will bookings automatically calculate for a full day (-8) or half day (-4) etc.

Hope this helps! :-)

It is set to Full Balance Breakdown...I've been going back and forth with our rep for weeks on this and their last resort was to put it as an Idea here because they cannot figure out how to make it show

Hmm.
There's gotta be something in the settings somewhere.

The only other thing I can think of without seeing your instance is that because the balance is "CURRENT", it's not deducting hours for future bookings.
Click "Paid Vacation (Jan-June Joining)" to see the transactions line by line. Is the employees balance correct after the future booking(s)?

One more thing you can try is to open up a new booking, select a future date, then hit the little gray down arrow on the right to see a breakdown of what happens between today and the future booking date...

The transactions will show for future if I click "ALL" for the date range....what we were trying to accomplish was not having to do that; just having our employees go in to book time off without remembering to go and check all future bookings (this is mostly because Replicon will let you book vacation even if you're out of days)
I also do not see the little grey box in the second option you have provided me

Don't forget, you can add a validation to the Time Off Policy in a whole that prevents users from submitting time off if they don't have the hours/days. I believe it's called something along the lines of Prevent Overdraw. Hopefully that helps at least a little bit.

Here's the little grey arrow - it only presents itself when the Time Off Booking is in the future...

Hi Megan,

What I understand from the conversation above is that you would like the actual balance rather than the current balance (today's balance excluding future days) to be shown when you go to the All Balance section. Unfortunately, you can only view the current balance at the time off all balance level. I will take this up as an Idea and request our product management team to look into it. Please do feel free to let me know in case my understanding differs the actual issue.

Hi Megan,

We do hope to provide some more options around displaying time off balances in future. This isn't in the immediate plans but will be definitely included as a candidate for future planning purposes.

Thank you,
Charlene
