Sometimes it might be necessary to register furloughings for employees that will be abscent for a certain amount of time from work. In this article we will explain two ways in which you can register these in Moment.
One option is to create your own abscence type. You can create this in settings > abscence setup > add new. In the settings you can decide yourself whether you want the absence types to reduce or increase banked hours.
Once the absence type has been created, the co-worker that has been furloughed will be able to choose this absence type in his/hers timesheet. Although the most common choice would be for it NOT to count towards banked hours. If the co-worker wants to add this type of absence for a longer period of time, the co-worker can click the name of the absence and add the duration in the "from-to" fields.
The advantages of using absence types for registering furloughings is that it will allow tou to keep up-to-date statistics on your employee reports.
This method can be used in two situations, both in situations in which the co-worker has reduced the full time-employment percentage or during furloughing. It is important that you do not delete the older schedules register on the co-worker because this will cause issues with reporting etc.
Basically, the only thing you need to do in this case is to go to the co-worker settings and setup a new schedule with a reduced amount of hours.
Setting up a new schedule will keep your reports up-to date and at the same time show a correct history of the employee's history.
