Add or Edit Leave Types

This article will show you how to set up various types of leave and sick days in the Hectre Web Dashboard to help keep track of staff that are absent from work. 

Hectre allows for 3 different categories of leave: Paid Leave, Unpaid Leave, and Sick Leave. Sick Leave has it's own category because sick pay usually has it's own limits allotted depending on the laws and regulations in your country / region. By having it's own category an employer can easily keep track of how many sick days staff are taking off through Payroll.

Follow the steps below to learn how to add new leave/sick types that are customized to your business. 

Video below followed by written instructions

Step 1

View your current sick/leave types
On the Web Dashboard head to:

  • Admin (1)
  • General (2)
  • Sick/Leave Types (3)

Add a new leave type

  • Add New Leave Type (4)

Step 2

  • Name the Sick/Leave Type as you wish
  • Choose the relevant Category: Sick Leave, Paid Leave, Unpaid Leave

Step 3

  • Review details of the new Sick/Leave Type
  • Click Save

This new option will now appear on the Hectre app if it's connected to the internet. If the new option doesn't appear, check your internet connection and try refreshing the app by clicking into another module (MyTimesheet, Timesheet, Scout etc) and then back into the module of choice again, or logging out and then back in again.
