Updated inย March- 2024 |ย Subscribe to watch greytHR how-to video

Managing leave types for the organization refers to the process of overseeing and controlling the various types of leave that employees can take within an organization. It involves setting up, maintaining, and making decisions regarding the leave categories available to employees.

The Leave type page in the greytHR Admin portal enables you to add and manage the leave types for your organization. The page displays the list of leave types that are applicable to your organization.
You can view the following two tabs on the page:

  1. Leave Types - The tab allows you to add a new leave type for your organization.

  2. Leave Types Gallery - The tab displays the most commonly used leave types.

To view the Leave Type page, click the Settings icon > System Settings > Leave > Leave type.

You can perform the following actions on the Leave Type page:

  1. Add new leave type.

  2. Edit existing leave type.
