Accumulated overtime can be reduced ie. 'burned' via the absence dialog by recording time-off (time in-lieu) against planned hours. For this purpose, the dialog was supplemented with an activity name named 'Overtime time-off', which is available in the selection list for reasons of absence. Single days or a date range can be submitted through the dialog, as shown.
When you submit, an automatic message is sent to the administrator. Incorrect entries can be reversed and are subject to the monthly data locking settings.
These time-off entries can be reviewed and exported in the Detail Report of the My Time desktop version.
