Assigning defined reasons to an absence type

This guide has been created for system administrators.

Specific role permissions may be required, including: Absence Setup.


Defined Reasons are specific categories of Sickness that help to better define the type of sickness a user is experiencing i.e. instead of having an absence of just Sickness it could be Sickness with the Defined Reason "Cold, Flugh or Cough".

If you'd like to assign defined reasons to an absence type, please follow the below step by step guide:
  1. Navigate to Admin tools > Admin panel
  2. Go to Global > Absence type set up
  3. Identify the absence type to update by either browsing or using the search filter at the top of the page.
  4. Press the Edit option on the absence type that requires updating.
  5. Under the General settings, you'll see the Defined reason(s).
  6. Click in the value box and assign one or more reasons for the current absence type.
  7. At the bottom of the page press, the orange Save button.
