We use indirect codes in vantage for the different types of absences and
enter them in when an employee is out. We do not use vantage payroll -
ADP and use a MS access db that converts the vantage labor data into the
ADP format and this form excludes the indirect codes we do not pay for.
I don't know how it would work if you use vantage for payroll, maybe
just change the pay hours to 0 or something?

-
Can anyone tell me how you are keeping track of employee absenteeism?
We currently have the Payroll module of Vantage, but not the HR
module/add-on.
We are using an old "homegrown" form from Omni form that is sent to a
supervisor when an employee is absent. The supervisor fills it out and
it is relayed back to the originator and the data is put into a
database.
This is a very "touchy" process and we really need to find something
else, the ideal thing would be to use Vantage, but I think the powers to
be think the HR module is to expensive.

Any suggestions
Thanks
Nancy

We're created out own version of the labor edit report for data
tracking, but one hurdle I've never been able to jump was when and
employee didn't clock in. I've tried 85 different joins, left outer,
right outer, equal, and none will show if some didn't have a
transaction. Kills me.

One way might be like the way we track vacation time....as an indirect code entered via Labor Edit. For purposes of other reporting I exclude the indirect code "VAC" but can still roll up the hours and report which days vacation time was taken on. We also use this to feed data to ADP payroll along with the weekly hours. A code such as "ABS" could be set up. Also, we have toyed with the idea of tracking disciplinary "points" this way - treating hours as point deductions.
