Base Leave Types

Base Leave Types


LeaveWizard allows you create as many different leave types as you like. There are several different base leave types each of which provides slightly different behaviour within LeaveWizard. The following table summarizes each of the types to give you an idea of what base type you might want to choose for your own event types.
NameDescription
Public HolidayAs the name suggests, this type is used for bank holidays but could also be used for something like a Christmas shut down period or any other time that the company may shut down and therefore is a compulsory holiday – this event type cannot be booked by employees


Allowanced Leave Requires ApprovalThe standard type of event used for employees to book holiday, this event type requires approval
Allowanced Unpaid Leave Requires ApprovalUse this event base type if you want to record that the employee will not be paid for the leave taken
Allowanced AbsenceThe standard type of event used for employees to book sickness or any other kind of absence that is not holiday but still has some kind of allowance associated with
Non-Allowanced AbsenceThis type can be used to record any kind of absence that does not require an allowance and therefore can be recorded any number of times
Non-Allowanced Absence Requires ApprovalThis event type can be used where an employee needs to be recorded as being absent but the absence must also be approved prior to being recorded
Non-Allowanced LeaveUse this event type for things like “Meeting” or any other type of event that does not require approval and does not have a related allowance but would be useful for other team members to be aware of
Non-Allowanced Leave Requires ApprovalUse this event type for things like “Working from home” or any other type of event that does requires approval but does not have a related allowance, any number of these event types can be recorded
