As we have the approval workflows, leave and absence types and parameters in place, the next step is to get the other part’s of the leave policy (below) from Margret aligned on Dynamics 365 Human Resources:

  • Every employee will get a accrual balance of 25 days in a accrual period
  • The accrual period starts is January to December every year
  • 5 days of leave can be carried forward to the next year and needs to be utilized before end of March. After which the 5 days are expired from balance
