Creating Custom calendar types
There is often a need to capture details of staff availability which is not related to leave or payroll. Examples might be;
Non working days for part time employees
Work from home arrangements
Employees who are travelling, or working from a different location
To include this type of ‘leave’ in LeaveCal you have the ability to create a ‘Custom Type’
Creating Custom Types is easy
Go to the Settings tab in the LeaveCal console
Select the + button as seen below
You can now enter any ‘Type’ that may be applicable for your business
Once this 'Type is created you can then create one off of recurring events for this from the calendar tab in the LeaveCal console.
By selecting the ‘+' next to 'Team Calendar’, you can then enter the details for the appropriate employee
If the event is reoccurring select the ‘Yes’ radio button and complete the details.
Once a ‘Custom Type’ event has been created they will be included in alerts along with any other leave in the LeaveCal calendar
