Time-Off Types

WFM enables you to configure multiple types of time off. Examples of time-off types include vacation, sick leave, paid time off, holiday, and maternity leave.

By default, WFM creates the Vacation time-off type. This time-off type cannot be deleted and does not belong exclusively to any site.

You can configure a time-off rule for a one or multiple time-off types. When you configure multiple time-off types for the same rule, the time-off balance is calculated and accrued for all time-off types associated with that rule.

Use the procedures in this topic to create, copy, edit, and delete time-off types, and associate/disassociate time-off types with sites.

You assign time-off type/time-off rule combinations to agents by using the Configuration > Agents > Time Off pane.

  5. Click Save when you are finished.

Copying Time-Off Types

To copy a time-off type:

  1. Select an existing time-off type from the list.
  2. Click Copy WM 851 icon copy.png from the toolbar.
  3. Rename and associate the time-off type with a Business Unit.

Properties Tab

  • Name—This name should be descriptive and must be unique within the site.
  • Short Name—The short name of the time-off type can be up to three characters.
  • Time-Off Type is Paid—Select this check box if the time-off type is paid.
  • Counts Toward Time-Off Limits—Select this check box if WFM should apply time-off hours of this type to the time-off limits that you set in the WFM Web for Supervisors Calendar module. If you clear this check box, no time-off limits are applied to this time-off type.
  • Trade Rule—This controls whether agents can trade schedule periods that include time off of this type. For example, a paid-time-off day normally stays with the agent, whereas training may stay with the schedule (any agent who is working that shift would attend that training). The selections are:
    • Delete (deletes the trade proposal)
    • Do not trade (denies the trade proposal)
    • Keep with agent
    • Keep with schedule (default).

Associating and Disassociating Sites

  1. Select a site's check box to associate it with the current time-off type.
    • In the Schedule State Group drop-down list, select the group that will be associated with this time-off type.
  2. Clear a site's check box to disassociate with the current time-off type.
  3. Click Save.

When associating sites, on the Associated Sites tab you can associate a time-off type with a Schedule State Group. The site's Schedule State Groups drop-down list is enabled when you check a site. It contains all Schedule State Groups under the selected site.

If a Schedule State Group with an associated Fixed State Exception exists for the selected site, this Schedule State Group is selected by default in the Schedule State Group drop-down list when you check this site.
