Absence journals contain absence registrations for a specific worker for a specific period of time. Before you can register an absence for a worker, you must create an absence journal for the worker.
When you create absence journals, the starting date immediately follows the ending date for the previous absence period for a worker. When you create the first absence journal for a worker, the starting date is the absence date that is specified on the Worker form for the worker.
Click Human resources > Periodic > Absence > Create absence journals.
In the Create absence journals inquiry form, modify the inquiry criteria to identify the workers to create absence journals for, and then click OK. For more information, see Inquiry (form).
Enter an ending date for the period to create absence journals for. For example, to create six absence journals for a worker whose absence periods are one month long, you can select an ending date that is six months from today’s date.
