This article covers Recording absence for an employee
Recording absence for an employee is a function available to Line Managers and Administrators only. You can record absence from your dashboard as displayed in the screenshot below:
Clicking the button will display a new absence form (see below). If you have previously searched for employee then the form will be pre-filled with the employee’s name. Otherwise you will need to select an employee from the drop down.
All your absence types will be listed in the Type drop down and you can provide, title, start and end date or duration and details in the same way as you do when creating leave requests.
At the bottom of the form you can also select Cover – you can choose another employee to provide cover when someone who is absent. The nominated employee will receive a message notifying them that they have been selected to cover for the person you are recording absence for.
