Maximize employee productivity through leave and absence management

Note

These release notes describe functionality that may not have been released yet. To see when this functionality is planned to release, please review What’s new and planned for Dynamics 365 for Talent. Delivery timelines and projected functionality may change or may not ship (see Microsoft policy).

Updating time off

Employee time-off requests might need to be updated or canceled after they've been approved through workflow. In many cases, the HR person or the employee's manager makes these updates. Talent will provide managers and HR the ability to update or cancel an employee's time-off request after it’s been approved. This helps to streamline the process and keep time-off data up to date.

Book future time off

In employee self-service, employees now see both their current time-off balances and what their time-off balances will be in the future. They can also submit time-off requests for the next leave period. This helps employees meet company policy. It also helps them understand how much time off they have in the next leave period and how much they will or won’t carry over.

Include reason codes with leave requests

Organizations might need additional information related to time-off requests. They might also require reason codes for specific leave types when employees submit time off. This could be due to a regulatory requirement in their country or a company policy. To provide this information, employees can include a reason code on their time-off requests.

Additional reporting for leave and absence

Time off is a benefit many organizations provide to employees. Tracking employee time off and understanding how time off is being calculated is essential. This helps organizations answer employee questions and ensures accurate time-off awards are given to employees.

Leave suspension

Organizations might have policies around what happens to leave when employees aren't at work for long periods of time. For some, this might mean suspending leave accruals during time away. HR professionals will be able to create rules around suspending leave when employees are on unpaid leave.
