This article will explain how to assign Time Off policies:

How to bulk assign Time Off policies



Time Off > "Types & Policies" tab > Click the three dots next to the time off policy you want to assign and select "Assign" > "Select employees" button > Add the employees you want to assign > Assign > Next > Next > Save

  1. In "Time Off" click on the "Types & Policies" tab.
  2. Find the Time Off type then click the three dots next to the time off policy you want to assign. 
  3. Select "Assign" from the dropdown menu.
  4. Click the "Select Employees" button and in the pop-up, click on the employees you want to assign this Time Off policy then click "Assign."
  5. Once you've selected all the employees, click the "Next" button.
  6. You'll see the employees who'll be added to the policy, if it's correct click "Next." 
  7. On the next page you'll see any employees that you've removed from the policy. From here, select the "Accrual End Date" for the removal and click "Save." 

That's how you bulk assign employees to a Time Off policy. 


You may need to refresh the "Type & Policies" page to see the updated changes.

  5. Select the new policy from the dropdown on the "Policy Name" field and click "Save."


The new policy has been assigned to the employee and will take effect on the date you've chosen. You'll see the updated transactions reflected on the "Transactions Log" down below on the Employee profile, once you refresh the page.

If you'd like to tweak the employee's balance after the new policy is assigned, you can make an adjustment. Also, note that all accruals after the effective date will be overwritten however, requests, adjustments, and previous accruals won't be affected.
