Learn how the time-off calculator allows you to calculate how much time off you will have accrued at a future date, which can help determine whether you will have enough time available to take at specific dates.
- [Instructor] A convenient tool available on the BambooHR platform is the time off calculator. Let's say, for instance, that you know you're going to want to take a family vacation next October, and you want to check to see whether or not you'll have enough time off accrued at that point. Depending on your company policy, you may accrue time off after working a certain number of hours, weeks, perhaps months, and you likely have a maximum number that you can accrue at one time. Well, this tool will help you to calculate the amount that you have available at certain points in the future.
In order to do this, you can use the time off calculator located on your homepage. So click the Home tab. And then down here next to the Request Time Off button, there is a calculator icon. I'm going to go ahead and click on that. And it brings up the time off calculator. It's telling me that right now I have 61.79 hours of vacation available to me. At the top, I first need to select the time off type. For me, I have vacation and sick time available. If I click on Sick, it's telling me I have 26.78 hours of that available at this point.
But I want to click back on Vacation where I have 61.79. Next to this, we have the as of date, and here's where I want to put in the date in the future to see how many hours I will have accrued. Now, I'll click on the calendar. And I know that my vacation is on October 15th of next year, so I'm going to click on October, 2018, and then click on the 15th. Once I do that, it's telling me that I will have accrued 117.79 hours at that point.
You can click here on Accrual Details, and it will tell you how you've accrued those hours, and it will give you your totals up till those points. Once you're done with this, you can hit Close. So I suggest using that time off calculator as a great way to find out how much time you'll have available to you at a point in the future.
