When changing a persons time off meter from days to hours or vice versa, the process in itself does not take into account the meter and duration of the previous time off requests for the employee. With these records still showing as the old meter value, it will cause discrepancies on the allowance wheel for the employee.
For example, an employee is entitled to 31 days and has taken 5 and booked 10 leaving a true balance of 16 days.
For this employee I have then changed their meter from days to hours and entered their new annual leave allowance as 232.5 (31 x 7.5 hours).
As you can see below, in the taken (T) and booked (B) columns it is still showing the values in days (5 taken days and 10 booked days) whilst the allowance and true balance is in hours which is both confusing and incorrect. In this instance the taken and booked values will need to be amended to reflect their new, equivalent value in hours.
You can do this manually but there is an option that can amend these for you in bulk called Time off meter convert which is found in Admin/HR/Time off management.
This automated process converts all requests since the beginning of the employee current holiday year only.
As you can see above, when selecting this employee in the time off convert screen it gives me a breakdown of these time off records showing their current duration in the current meter (days in this case) and then a proposed converted duration in the new meter (hours in this case).
Highlighted on the screenshot is an existing time off record for 3 days which the system correctly suggests changing to 22.5 hours based on the employees working pattern of having a 7.5 hour working day.
The Converted duration field is an editable field so if there are any discrepancies with the Converted duration values, you can amend them to a value of your choosing.
When you are happy with all the converted values, click "Convert all" to change them all in bulk.
Please note: this process permanently changes the time off records and cannot be undone so you should ensure that the values are correct before confirming the conversion process.
