Hello,

Under the "Time Off" tab, when an employee is requesting time off, is there any possible way to change/adjust the order of the time-off types in the drop-down box? I believe as of today, the time-off types are listed by alphabetical order from top to bottom. Is there a way where we can change the order? Perhaps from most used to least used or organizing the types in a certain way? Thank you very much.

We asked the same question and were informed that it's alphabetical order, unfortunately this resulted in a lot of staff booking Bereavement Leave as they didn't look at the drop down. We managed this by amending staff default 'time off' to Vacation, as this is the most commonly booked time-off. This isn't a perfect solution but worked for us. If you change the global default it only works for new accounts. Staff with existing accounts need to change their own default time-off setting or the administrator can do it. We sent out a note on our intranet and it worked for us.

Hi Moses,

Unfortunately, Ian's reply is the best that you can do now. The system currently does not allow the rearranging of all the time offs. I can however, take it up as an Idea and see if this can be looked upon further.

Thanks,

I have also been able to control the order by prefixing the time off name with z_

This will drop the lesser used items to the bottom:

We have added an asterisk in front of those time off types most frequently used and they go in alpha order at the top of the list. (example *Vacation, *Sick)

Hi All,

We don't have any plans to create a template for admins to define the order right now. So Tom's suggestion is how to manage for the time being. 

Thanks, Karen
