What is a time off code in Metis?

A time off code is a default time off category that appears your timesheet. Anyone can submit time against these codes, so they cannot be shown only to specific people.

You should use time off codes to record time against commonly used, and always available categories, such as:

  • Annual leave
  • Sickness
  • Parental Leave
  • Public Duties
  • Compassionate Leave
  • Unpaid Leave


Time can be submitted against time off codes, but expenses cannot. If you require expenses to be booked against a time off code, we recommend you create this as an internal job.

Add a time off code ► [?]

1. Navigate to Zones > Settings.

2. Click on the sub-tab Timesheets and enter Edit Mode.

3. Go down to Time Off Categories and click Add Category.
4. Enter the details of your new category.

5. Press Save at the bottom of the page.
