How Do I Remove Allowance Restrictions For A Leave Type?

You can remove or change the allowance of an event type on LeaveWizard whenever you want.

Remove Allowance

If you have an event type with a fixed allowance such as 20 days per annum but you want to remove the limit so that any number of days can be requested you need to change the type of event to one that is not allowanced. This can be done by selecting a non-allowanced event type from the ‘Type of event’ drop down of the event type details page.

To access that page, highlight the event type on the Event Types and Allowances page and then either click the ‘Edit’ button on the sub-menu or right click the event type and select ‘Edit…’ from the pop-up menu.

Change Allowance

If you want to change the allowance associated with an event type you need to change the ‘Annual Allowance’ value for the event type which can also be set by editing the event type using the same technique as described above.

However this only changes the default annual allowance used for a new leave year and won’t change the allowances already in effect for the current leave year.

If you want to set all users to the same default value for the event type you can use the ‘Reset to default’ button above the allowance table or you can edit individual allowances on the allowance table of the Event Types and Allowances page.

In both cases, first select and highlight the event type you want to change by clicking on it. To configure allowances for a single user use the ‘pencil icon’ or the ‘Edit all’ button for multiple users simultaneously.
