Leave general settings

Leave > Settings

Organisations offer different kinds of leaves, with Paid Leaves being the most common leave type. Other common types of leave are Vacation Leaves, General Sick Leaves, and Holiday Leaves. 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 benefits, 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.

2. Set the minimum time to request

In Swingvy, it's possible to set the minimum time that employees can request for hourly leaves with the lowest duration being 30 minutes. You can set the hourly leaves based on the company policy. The hourly leave follows the normal working hour, 8 hours a day. The leave balance will be displayed 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) 


The working hours a day is 8 hours. If the 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:
