Factorial allows you to request three kind of time-off types by default; holidays, sick leave and maternity/paternity leave, but you as an administrator, have the permission to create more types of leave for your employees to request through their accounts.
How can I create a new leave type?
Easy, easy, easy.
Simply go to Company > Absences > Types of absence.
You will see the default absence types created on the right, and a blue button indicating "new absence type".
If you click on the blue button, you will see a drop-down list with different questions according to the configuration of the absence type you want to create.
Let's put the case you want to create the Teleworking absence.
- Click the blue-button to create a new type of absence
- Fill in the 5 questions to configure the absence
- Put it away and you're done!
Now, this type of leave will be available to other employees and they will be able to request it from their absence supervisor.
