It’s that time of the year when many employee are taking time off to spend time with family. Whatever holiday you celebrate, this is definitely the time of the year for family. With employees out of the office, companies must track the amount of time taken by each employee.
Microsoft Dynamics GP has a number of vacation tracking options:
- The Human Resources module has a Vacation Calendar option. This presents a calendar view, with a listing of employees that have taken time off for each day.
- The Canadian Payroll module makes Vacation Accruals every pay period. Each employee has a vacation rate attached to them. With each pay cycle, automated accruals are made to each employee record to track the amount of vacation earned. When vacation is taken, it comes out of this same pool of time earned. Further, all the appropriate entries are made to the General Ledger with each transaction.
