Absences reduce the available capacity to zero or halve the capacity for half-day absences. Projects and tasks are not distributed to these days in the planner's workload calculation, or reduced (for half-day absences).

Create a new absence

Absences for users can be entered by clicking and dragging in the planner's workload view.

An absence can optionally have a name. However, nothing has to be entered here. For absences without a name, the overview simply says "Absent". You can also choose from one of the suggested text modules that are displayed as soon as you click on the text field.

If you select the Only 1/2 on the day on the start or end date, only a half-day absence will be created for the day. Therefore, only half of the capacity will be created on that day. For the start date, the second half of the day is marked as absent, and for the end date, the first half of the day.

Appointments and tasks on absent days

Unlike projects and tasks, where the workload can be spread over different available days, the workload for appointments and tasks scheduled in the calendar remains even on days when absences exist.

Absences on the dashboard

There is a dashboard widget for viewing upcoming absences.
