Manage Employee Absence

To manage an employee's absence, you must record the absence on the Absence Registration page. It can then be viewed in different ways for analysis and reporting needs.

You can view employee absence in two different pages:

  • The Absence Registration page, where you register all employee absences with a line for each absence.
  • The Employee Absences page, where the absences for one employee only is shown. This is the information that you entered on the Absence Registration page, filtered by the particular employee.

To obtain meaningful statistics, you should always use the same unit of measurement (hour or day) when registering employee absences.
