Processing Leave

QicWorks processes leave one of two ways.

1. Manual entry outside of your accounting software
2. Through direct API integration with Xero

Manual Entry of Leave

If you are currently using an accounting package other than Xero, we recommend that you handle all Leave requests as a Task within Job Management. Simply mark these tasks as available and assign resources accordingly that way Users can allocate their time via the QicWorks Time clock, individual or Group Timesheets.

Our most common Leave Tasks include:
  1. Offsite Learning ie TAFE
  2. Annual Leave
  3. Picnic Day
  4. Unpaid Leave
  5. Personal/Carer Leave
  6. Long Service Leave

Using Xero Integration

Prior to commencing Payroll Approval we recommend that you pull all leave applications. This ensures that all requests, as well as current leave balances for personnel are available.

Head over to Time and Attendance, and select Leave Management. Here you will see all leave requests, their current status and details.
