This is where you can configure the “vacation”, “sabbatical”, “freeweek”, “training” and “extra” sub rules:
The vacation sub rule works like this: The number of days specified in “Days During Period” will be earned between the dates specified in “Vacation Period”. Typically, the vacation year is from the 1st of jan to the 31st of dec and you earn 25 days in this period.
Those vacation days will either be released and usable after the date specified in “Release Date” or instantly when earned.
For example, a user could earn 25 days of vacation during 2004 but they won’t be usable until the 1st of may 2005.
The sabbatical sub rule works like this: If “Period Duration” is 6 years and “Days Per Year” is 5, then 6 years after employment date the user will have 30 (6x5) days of sabbatical ready to use up. Then, after another 6 years, he/she will have 30 more days.
The free week sub rule is much like the sabbatical sub rule, but with a slightly different input. If, for example, “Period Duration” is 12 months and “Days Earned Per Period” is 5, then every year 5 days of freeweek will be released to the user.
Note: The amount of Freeweek earned is specified in hours, not days.
Earned exactly like Free Week (see above).
Note: The amount of Training earned is specified in hours, not days.
Earned exactly like vacation (see above).
The name of the “Extra” earned type can be changed under “Personnel” > ”Personnel Management” > ”Settings” > ”Work Roster Settings”.
