Leave general settings

Organisations offer different kinds of leave, with paid leave being the most common leave type. Other common types of leave are; vacation leave, general sick leave, and holiday leave. Although employers may not be required to provide such fringe benefits, they may be legally obligated to comply with any policies or practices that grant leave benefit, either paid or unpaid, to employees.
Once you figure out the types of leave for your employee, you can start to tackle your process in Swingvy.
Step 1 - Go to Leave
Step 2 - Click on Settings
Step 3 - Select leave types
Step 4 - Look for General settings
Step 5 - Click on Edit

In detail, here is what you can control in the leave general settings: 

1. Edit leave types name

Once a leave type has been created and you decided to rename the leave type, here is the section you need to look for: 


2. Set the minimum time to request

In Swingvy, it is possible to set the minimum time that employees can request for hourly leave with the lowest duration being 30 minutes. You can set the hourly leave based on the company policy. The hourly leave is following the normal working hour, 8 hours a day. The leave balance will show in the form of XXdXXh. The indicator for "d" and "h" is for day and hour respectively. There are 3 options to set the hourly leave and the default minimum time to request is 4 hours:

  • Half-day (4 hours)
  • 1 hour
  • 30 minutes (0.5 hours) 

Swingvy tip:

The working hours a day is 8 hours. Should employee applied for 8 hours of leave, it will be counted as full day




3. Define your leave cycle basis

A leave cycle is the 12 month period on which time off is calculated and granted to employees in accordance with their employment contract. There are 2 types of leave cycle to choose from:
