  • If you're using the feature for the first time, select the Apply default to all current employees option to apply the balance cap to all employees.

  • You also have the option of manually entering the max hours allowed per employee under the Maximum Hours Allowed column.

4. Click Save once done. Now that you've got your maximum time off balance set, an employee will not be able to accrue beyond that balance.


Q: Can an Administrator or Manager manually add an accrual beyond the maximum hours allowed or overwrite the feature?

A: No, if an Administrator or Manager tries to manually add an accrual and the employee is at their maximum time off balance, they will receive an error stating such.

Q: Can I set the maximum hours allowed for every time off type?

A: Yes, each time off type has its own maximum hours allowed setting.
