Time Off Policies - Developers should go back to basics

Time Off module in Replicon is a great idea with a very poor development and thought process.

Let's go back to basics.

Should a user accrue time when he's on non-paid leave?

Should a company policy overwrite a user Policy?

Why on earth Replicon creates an Admin tab where the Admin (myself) can set policies, change policies etc and when it saves it doesn't apply to all users? but only to new user?

Well...here we go:
Every end of the year, during Christmas and NYE we allow our staff to overdraw up to 5 days. However, all year around we have a 0 overdraw policy. So far so good.

When I went to change the company policy to allow users to overdraw up to 5 days, hit save and updated the policy on a company level (a.k.a Parent level).

To my surprise, our staff still can't make use of the new policy, why? Because the policy will only apply to new users. Therefore I have to go and change user by user. 

At this time the customer support is doing it for me but what happens if my business has 5,000 employees? Clearly, this is a broken process, which seems quite common with Replicon.

Does using mass edit not help?

I wish that was the case, but again, Replicon's Dev's should go back to basics. If I adjust via mass edit then it will override all previous balance etc...My feeling about Replicon is that they work on a "break fix scenario" instead of thinking what they want to produce and have it tested prior to releasing "new features"
