Within Vacation Tracker, you are able to create different leave types depending on the needs of your organization. Some of the most common ones are:

Approval Required - you can turn this option on if the leave requires an approval from a manager.

Allow Negative Balance - gives you the option to allow your users to apply for leave even after they have used up their quota.

Unlimited Days - you would turn this option on if you have a policy that grants unlimited amount of days.

Yearly Leave Quota - if you’re looking to set a quota of days you would edit it here.

Allow Half Days - would be turned on if you would allow that leave type to be a half-day.

If you require your users to include additional information when applying for a leave, you would tick off the Reason Required option.

The Hide Leave Type option hides the name of the leave from all of the regular users in order to provide additional privacy.

Last but not least, the Max Rollover Days is a field you can use to set how many leftover days should be rolled over to the following year for this leave type, for this location.
