While setting up time off policies, you can select whether you want a particular leave to be calculated on Calendar days or Working days.

Here is the difference:

Calendar Days: Every day from departure until arrival is counted against your leave balance, even if some days fall on a weekend or public holiday.

Working Days: Only business days are counted as days of leave, weekends and company holidays (those on the calendar) do not count as used leave. 

To select either approach to leave calculation, follow the below steps:

  • Under Settings, go to Configuration and click on Time Off and expand your Time Off Policies
  • Click on the Edit icon to edit your existing policies or Add New for a new policy
  • Fill in the details of your leave policy and select from the drop down list whether this particular leave of x number of days is a calendar or working day policy

3. Selecting the "Restrict Editing of Leave" option restricts employees from adjusting the total number of days computed by the selection of date range and only calculates the actual working days.
Working Days policy example:
From 4 May to 11 May = 6 Working Days

Under a Calendar Days policy, the calculation would be 8 days as weekends are counted toward the balance.
