If necessary, you can override the annual amount specified in a PTO policy. This is useful for situations where one or more employees are exceptions to the PTO policy amounts.

To override the default annual amount for an individual, follow these steps:

  1. As an administrator, navigate to the Paid Time Off tab on the employee's profile.
  2. Click the arrow next to the policy name, and from the menu choose "Edit Accrual Rate".
  3. Enter the annual amount that this employee should earn as a custom accrual rate.
  4. Save your changes.

Note: If the different amounts are based solely on tenure, you might prefer to use our Years of Service feature to automatically increase amounts each year. 

Another note: If things are really crazy, you can also create more policies and assign them to individual employees. Although we don't usually recommend it, it's technically possible to give each employee their own policy!
