Overview: With our annual accrual, employees can earn on a specific date, such as their employment anniversary. You can also set up an alert to remind you of Hire Date anniversaries.

Important: To create an anniversary accrual, you will first want to make sure that you have your Time Off types set up and that they are included in accruals. If you haven't done so already, this article explains that process: Enable Time Off Accruals

Q: Can I automatically move an employee from one accrual rule to another?

A: No, we are not currently able to automatically move employees from one rule to another, this would need to be managed manually but you can set the Anniversary Reminder to alert you as needed.
