Holidays, lunch breaks, and time off
Taking a vacation, had a sick day, or celebrating a holiday?
We suggest handling this in either of two ways, depending on how your team works:
1. You have open vacation policies or don't need detailed reports for time off
If you don't have strict sick day and/or vacation policies, just don't record any time for that day. This works great for small teams and if your company has an open vacation policy.
You'll still get all the goodness of Freckle's reporting of course (e.g. you can see how much time each team member worked each month)!
2. Your team needs reports on sick days, holidays and vacations
Create a "Time off" project (or similar) and record an 8-hour entry when you take a day off. We suggest that you set this project as unbillable. You can use hashtags like #vacation* or #holiday* to indicate further why time was logged to the project and then run statistics with Freckle's reporting later.
The same rules apply for smaller breaks like a lunch break. Your team can either not log that time for the day, or log it to a special project.
Freckle's flexibility lets you choose the best option for your team's culture, without getting in the way of logging the rest of your time!
