If an employee takes time off after the payslips have been paid and before the end of that particular month, Odoo will notify you and allow you to carry forward this time off to the next month. If an employee takes time off at the end of the particular month after generating a payslip and if it was approved, Odoo will automatically generate activity for the responsible person to warn that they need to create a work entry manually for the Time Off. This record can be notified in the Odoo Payroll module. You can view the warning that you have time-off to defer to the next month in the Work Entry menu. So the responsible person can manually enter the work entry, apply the time off, and mark the activity as done. All these Time Off records that were needed to compute in the next payslip will be listed under the Time Off To Report window. The image of the window is depicted below.


Here in the window, you can view all the Time Off details that were needed to compute in the next payslip along with its status. Odoo also provides you the right to approve or refuse the time off from the window itself. The various sorting functionalities available in the window will help you to view your time off to report records from different perspectives. Moreover, Odoo allows you to view the window in various views such as List, Kanban, Calendar, Activity, and Gantt.
