ShopClock Provides a Way For Employees to Request Various Kinds of Time Off.
This window provides the employee with a way of requesting any type time off except holidays. It also shows the employee the amount of Vacation, Sick, and PTO hours that are currently available and shows on the calendar which vacation and PTO days have already been scheduled by other employees.
Available vacation, sick, and PTO hours are displayed on the left side of upper panel. This employee has 16 hours of vacation time and 40 hours of Sick time left to allocate. These numbers are decremented as time off requests are approved and incremented when the administrator or the accrual system adds more time to the account. If an approved day off is deleted it's hours are added back into the available time off.
Clicking on the number of hours available brings up a journal which shows every addition and deletion that has occurred.
A legend explaining the markings on the calendar is presented on the right hand side. The Legend tells what colors are being used to represent the various kinds of time off on the calendar. Holidays, Vacation, Sick, PTO, Uncompensated, Time Worked, and Bereavement days which have been approved by the Administrator are shown with black numbers and a light background colors. Days which have been requested, but not yet approved by the Administrator, are shown with white numbers with a darker background color.
