Configure attendance settings

Updated inย November- 2023 |ย Subscribe to watch greytHR how-to video

Configuring attendance settings refers to setting up and customizing the parameters and rules related to employee attendance tracking within an organization's attendance management system or software. It involves configuring various settings to accurately capture and manage employee attendance data, such as work hours, leaves, breaks, and attendance policies.

The Attendance Options page in the greytHR Admin portal helps you to configure attendance settings such as IP Address for Signing In, Attendance Year, Attendance Cut-Off Date, Attendance Regularization Reviewer, and Attendance Penalty Leave. The changes you make on this page reflect in all the attendance information-related pages under the leave module.ย 

To view the Attendance Options page, click the Settings icon > System Settings > Attendance > Attendance Options.

โš ๏ธ We recommend you to contact the greytHR support team before making any changes in settings.
