I would like to see MYOB create a feature that warns you if someone has overused their Sick and Annual Leave allowance when processing pays

 

"Sick leave overuse warning"

Current Status: Done
Last Changed: April 2014

I am please to report that we have implemented this feature and it will be available in the 2014.1 release which will be available in the next few weeks. Thank you everyone for your feedback on the product and your idea, keep them coming.

I agree that this needs to be integrated into MYOB somehow. 

 

Either that we get a warning if we put in more hours than are available or if when you drill down on the arrow next to the leave to record dates of leave being taken that it shows the hours that are accrued.

 

The first option would be the best as some people don't record in MYOB the actual dates of leave being taken or any other notes, these records are just kept on the staff file.

 

Quickbooks have had the ability to see the amout of holidays and sick days accrual when recording a pay for an employee for years.

The leave tracking information window is a useful tool to report actual leave dates and information. It would be helpful if current entitlement balances for the employee could also be shown in this window to reduce the need to revisit the card file to determine if the employee has sufficient leave entitlement

oh yes that would be a good idea

I think it would be very useful if either the balance of entitlements showed up on timesheets or even better a warning came up when you try to allocate hours to an entitlement that will go into the negative.

It would be useful when you are processing payroll, and an employee has taken leave, for some sort of alert to pop up if the employee is exceeding their current leave entitlement.

This would save having to run a leave report every time an employee has leave, to check they have enough for the time they have taken off.

I agree, it is frustrating to have processed someone's payroll and then to realise they have gone into negative sick or annual leave.  MYOB should lt you know when an employee is about to go into negative leave so that you can manually override it if you want to or adjust their pay as necessary.
