Question: How do I make half terms to reflect on staff attendance reports?
Answer: As the Holidays area doesn't automatically reflect on the Staff Absences Report you will need to manually add Holiday codes for staff. This is because a lot of school still have paid staff in over holidays.
To do this;
- Go to Admin>Personnel>Staff Absences Codes and check you have a "Holiday" code created - click create new code if you don't and populate the boxes setting this to "not counted.
- Next go to Admin>Personnel>Manage Staff Attendance - set the dates to 1 of your Half Terms and click the tick box to "include holidays".
- Now all you need to do is make sure all staff are ticked. Scroll to the very bottom of the page and choose "Holiday" from the "choose code" dropdown. Click fill spaces and this will bulk fill that holiday code into all staff.
The Staff absences reports "possible sessions" will now exclude that half term from its figures.
