Time off Allowance Explained
Within your Natural HR account, your time off balance will be displayed within a "Donut Chart" on your Home page.
(Please bear in mind that your view of this chart may differ depending on how your company has configured the system. For example, depending on your company policy, this may be displayed in "Hours" rather than "Days").
At any point, if you hover over any of the sections in the graph you will be able to see a "pop-up" to show clearly show the value.
Depending on your company's settings, you may also see a Heading of "Total timeoff allowance breakdown".
If you click the + icon next to this heading, you'll be able to see a table showing your allowances in more detail:
The centre of the donut will clearly display how many days you have remaining. This is the value that will be deducted from, should you book any time off. You can also click on this to go to a page showing your time off requests.
The "Taken" section displays the number of days which have been already been taken in the past.
"Mandatory" days are days which have already been deducted from your allowance by your company. These are days which the whole company must have off either due to policy or legislation. For example, public holidays, bank holidays etc.
"Booked" days refer to future time off requests which have yet to be taken.
The "True Balance" figure (which is also the figure in the centre of the chart) relates to the remaining bookable allowance assuming that all "Booked" days will be taken. Once a new time off request is approved, the true balance will be automatically recalculated to include the new booked days. Likewise, once a future booked date is cancelled within the system the true balance will be automatically updated.
To calculate your full annual entitlement, simply add all of the section values together and you this will show your total allowance.
If you have any questions or issues surrounding your allowance, please contact your HR department or system administrator.
