Work Entry Types in Odoo 15 Payroll

Work Entry Types

The Work Entry Types menu available under the Configuration tab of the Odoo Payroll -module will allow you to configure various work entry types. When you enter the menu, you will open a new window to view all the predefined Work Entry Types along with the Name, Code, and Colour. Let us have a glance at the window.


The records in the window can be viewed in both List view and Kanban view. You can apply Filters, Group By, and other options by clicking on them. You can also create new Work Entry Types by clicking on the CREATE icon available on the top left corner. The screenshot of the creation window is depicted below.


Here in the creation window, you can include the Work Entry Type Name along with the Code, and Color. Under the Display in Payslip section, you can specify the Rounding as No Rounding, Half Day or Day. When the work entry is displayed in the payslip, the value is rounded accordingly. Additionally, in the Valid For Advantages section, you can enable the options such as Meal Voucher, Representation Fees, Private Car Reimbursement so that the work entries count for these respective operations. In addition, if it is an unexpected, verifiable unforeseen absence, the Unforeseen Absencefield can be enabled. You can check this box if it is a type of Unforeseen or unexpected Absence. Unforeseen absences are the provable absence that becomes required after the employee reports to work. If the Work Entry is checked as Unforeseen Absence, it will be counted in the absenteeism at work report. Then you can allocate the Unpaid in Structures Types and view the Time Off options section where you have the Time Off and Keep Time Off Right fields. The Time Off-field allows the work entry type to be linked with time-off types. Activating the Keep Time Off Right option enables work entries to count for time off right for next year. So you can allocate the Time Off Type, and every new time-off type in this list will be reported as a select work entry in the payslip. After giving all reports, you can click on the SAVE button to save the details.

As we are clear on how to configure Work Entry Types in Odoo, let us discuss how to configure Working Times in the Odoo Payroll module.
