Attendance - Annoying Accrual Reminder when Opening the Software

When opening Gradience Attendance, you may see this message…

This message is a reminder to run your Time-Off Accruals when you open the software. The reason you are getting this reminder is that the program has been instructed to remind you to do this. You can see where the program was instructed to do this by clicking Settings > Global Settings > Attendance. Look to the right under Accrual Schedule and you will see this…

If you prefer not to be reminded about this, set it to one of the following...



The choice you make depends on whether you want the program to handle accruing Time-Off automatically. 

  • If you choose the first illustration above, the software will never [automatically] give anyone any Time-Off at all.
  • If you choose the second choice shown above, the software will [automatically] give people their Time-off whenever your Time-Off plans dictate.

If you end up selecting the second choice above, please make sure the rest of the area looks like this...

When you have it set as I am showing you here, the program will [checkon a daily basis to see whether anyone should earn any Time-Off on that day. If on that day no one should earn any Time-Off ...No one will. This does not mean people will actually earn Time-Off 7 days a week. It merely means that the software will [check] 7 days a week to see when and whether to give anyone any Time-Off at all. By the way, you can ignore that month and day at the bottom. That's legacy from an old version of the software.
