We want to register vacation days in days in the HRM module, not in hours. Is that possible?
No, if you use the HRM module, the registration of vacation days will be in hours. There are various reasons for this.
Firstly, we increasingly see deviating work weeks than 40 hours a week. For example, we also see full-time work weeks of 37.5, 38, 39 and 39.5 hours per week. And sometimes those hours are neatly spread over the working days per week, but sometimes only Friday is worked for less than 8 hours. In such cases it is very difficult to determine the number of hours per day, also for vacation days. After all, although an employee works full-time, the number of working hours may vary on a weekday or Friday. It then becomes difficult to keep the registration in days, because Friday could for example be a working day of 5.5 hours.
Secondly, Celery offers employees the option of requesting vacation leave from 11 a.m. to 3.30 p.m. In such a case, Celery will also ask whether the pause duration set should be deducted. In such a case the number of hours is easy to determine, but the number of days is not taking into account point 1 above that a working day does not always have to be 8 hours.
There are also employees who work part-time, and then for example 5 working days per week of 6 hours per day (30 hours per week). If this employee takes 1 day off, is that 1 vacation day? A vacation day usually involves 8 hours and not 6 hours. In such cases it is also desirable to keep track of the registration of vacation in hours.
It may take some getting used to, but other clients who have already started using the HRM module and objected to the registration in hours, afterwards indicate that the registration of in hours is nevertheless handy and no longer have any objections.
