How is time off calculated?

When you add a time off entry, Metis takes into account all of the available working time in this period and distributes the total appropriately.


What do we mean by available working time? This is counted as:

- the standard company working hours and days (as defined in your company Settings)

- your custom working hours and days (if different to above)

              - time that is not a public holiday (if public holiday calendar has been selected in your company Settings)


Are there approvals for time off in Metis?

Approvals for time off has been submitted as a product suggestion, but it has not yet been added to Metis.


We recommend you tracking approvals for time off requests outside of Metis, or using your HR system.
