There are instances that a company may want to carry forward leave to next year. In Indigo leave is not added up to the current year leave, but instead will remain referenced for the Leave Year it was allocated in.
So if an employee has remaining leave from the previous year/s this may still be utilized as per priorities you set but then it will check the dates that it may be used in.
If as a payroll user you would want to carry forward such leave, this is what you should do.
Go to Payroll (Left Menu) > Leave (Section) > Leave Types
From leave types select the Leave Type that you wish to carry forward, edit it by selecting the pencil button and you will enter in the below screen.
Amend both 'to' dates to whenever you want to have this leave utilized.
Further to this you need also to confirm how the system will behave for the vacation types of the previous year and the current year. By default when you do the switch to the new year (End of Year) the system will change the 'Entitlement with new employment' (1) and 'Pay off on Termination' (2) to 'None'. If company policy is to pay off all the remaining balance for the previous year the 'Pay off on Termination' (4) should be changed to 'Full'.
After this, check also the details for the current year leave where Entitlement with new employment (1) and Pay off on termination (2) should be both Pro-Rata. You may also consult the leave priorities so that you will know how the system will deduct the leave first from.
