  • Suggestions for tracking staff's time off

    I am looking for a suggestion on how to best track time off by my staff.

    Once I grant their request for time off, it is recorded in the individual's attendance planner.

    After that, I'm often forgetful the first day of their vacation that they are out of the office.
    Would putting a note on a tickler folder be a good way to remember that they are out of the office?
    I thought about putting on my calendar but I want to limit the day specific information unless absolutely necessary.

    I put these on my Calendar for key teammates as an untimed event (e.g. "FYI: Kari out").

      We have a team calendar on the wall in the corridor where everyone's leave is recorded.

        I use google calendar, so I have a extra calendar called Office Dates, which I log people's leave, sickness and things like that.

        You can share that calendar, so everyone can see it.

        You can also show or hide it at a click, so it doesnt get in the way when you have appointment heavy days.

          Good point - you can also do that with Outlook on a work network

            I don't have many of those types of things but in iCal I have a specific calendar for them that I can show or hide as necessary. Sometimes I've used Kelly's approach of making all day untimed notes for stuff like that. Either one works but I like the separate calendar style best.

              There are different tools that can help you track staff time off. You can even do it manually by writing it on a clean sheet of paper or a time sheet on your computer so that you can review it on your home.

              You can also use Google Docs and it is for free. You can also share it to everyone with the use of the internet. It can be easily access anywhere you are and it is more secure, you can restrict people who are using it for who can only view and who can edit the file.

              I can also visit this blog that discusses time tracking tools and its features maybe this can help.
