Indigo Payroll includes other types of leave that can be given to your employees:

  • Parental leave

  • Marriage leave

  • Birth of child leave

  • Bereavement leave

  • Unpaid leave

  • Study leave

  • Shut down leave

  • Public holiday leave

  • (Others, such as adoption, court witness leave, and more, can be made by creating leave types.)

  5. Click on Insert + in the functions bar.

  6. Enter the leave type and the entitlements hours.

  7. Click Save in the functions bar.

Now, you can enter this leave for the employee:

  1. In the Main section of Indigo Payroll, click on Leave.

  2. Click on Insert + in the functions bar. 

  3. Enter the applicant and the dates from and to.

  4. Enter the leave type. You do not need to select a leave group.
