2 │ Members are seeing an error message when entering Leave Pro or they are missing certain type of leaves
Remember, the system will automatically dole out leaves base on rules and eligibility. If some employees are receiving their leaves, please check whether they have been set eligible to receive the leaves.

    1. Eligibility
      In most workplaces, some leaves are given based on seniority, positions, or gender-specific, in STEP 2 of the Leave Pro tool setup FAQ, eligibility plays a big role in who gets what types of leaves. Please make sure that you have properly selected the right type of employees for each leave type for them to receive their leaves.

What are the necessary settings of Leave Pro?

    1. Employee Profiles
      As mentioned, some leaves are doled out based on different factors, and the employee profiles are where you can find these settings for each employee. When everything is properly set, then everyone should be getting the correct leaves.

What are the necessary settings for each employee?

  1. Employee Balance
    Steps 1 and 2 should handle most cases of employees who aren’t receiving their leaves. If all else fails and you have no idea why some employees are getting their leaves, you can use the Employee Balance function to grant leaves individually. But consider this as the last resort, so long the root cause is not found, you always have to manually grant leaves to these employees.

3 │ HR Calendar
Don’t forget that the HR Calendar is connected to Leave Pro as well!

  • Setting federal holidays and workdays throughout the calendar year will determine when employees can apply for leaves and how leaves are deducted.

So if employees’ leaves are incorrectly deducted, it probably has something to do with the company’s HR Calendar.
