Hourly Paid Staff and Accrued Holiday Settings

These are the settings for your employees whose time off is tracked in Accrued Hours.

  1. Set your average hours for the working day

  2. Set your accrual %

  3. If you would like to set a cap on the holiday accruals, enter in the number of hours it should cap at

  4. Select if you want to accrue on Paid Holidays, Sick, and Other Time Off

  5. Select if you want the ability to overwrite the accrual calculation this when logging time off

  6. Click save at bottom of screen

Salary Paid Staff and Standard Allowance Settings

These are the settings for your employees whose time off is tracked in Standard Allowance of Annual Days. Here, you can set the standard company allowance in days. This can be overwritten in each employee's profile if there are any deviations to the standard within their individual time off settings.

Holiday Requests and Employee Portal Settings

  1. Set a minimum number of days notice employees must give to submit their time off requests using the text box.

  2. Allow employees to view their time off balance when they sign into their Employee Portal and MyZimply Employee mobile app. To do so, select 'Yes'. If 'No' is selected, employees will still be able to request time off but without the ability to view what their holiday balances are.

  3. Click save at the bottom of the screen.
