How do I re-order leave item lists to promote the use of some leave items?
You might want to promote your employees' use of Vacation over Sick time. Or, you might want to reduce the possibility of users selecting Holiday instead of Vacation when adding leave to their timesheets.
Ordering Leave Item Pick List
The solution is to have leave items that you want to promote at, or near, the top of the leave item list. You also don't want to have Holiday next to Vacation on the list if certain users are in the habit of choosing Holiday (which will not affect their Vacation balance) when they should really be selecting Vacation.
Leave Item Pick List Setup
Note that leave items (e.g. pay codes such as holiday, sick or vacation) appear in a particular order on the leave item pick list. This order is set on the Pay Codes administration page.
To change the order:
- Navigate to System>Pay Codes
- Note that the Pay Codes page has check boxes and Move Up and Move Down buttons.
- For example, you can check mark Holiday or Sick and click the Move Down button until they are at the bottom of the list.
- You can also move other pay codes until you have the order you want.
