TIME OFF - Odoo 17 Community Book

Time-off Management

One of the main responsibilities of human resource management is leave administration. Ensuring that leaves are properly recorded is a crucial aspect of any organization. It will also be detrimental to the organization if you don't give managing your leave any thought. The absences of all workers involved in the project must be documented. If leaves are taken, they should be taken regularly and handled correctly to ensure the smooth and efficient operation of the business. You need to activate the Time Off Module in the Odoo ERP for this to work. This specific module will be used to control leave in the HR departments. You will receive approval for your leave request from the relevant controlling officers within the same platform. Payrolls, paid leaves, paid off, and numerous other leave-related choices are all provided by the module. Let's now examine how to administer and control the module to ensure that employee leaves are taken smoothly.

The Time Off Module in the Odoo 17 ERP has numerous sections, including My Time Off, Overview, Approvals, Reporting, and Configuration.
