Status FAQs

Can our company customize our statuses?

Yes! 

If an employee calls out, how long will they remain in a given status?

By default, a status lasts for a single day - the date of the reported absence. If you have structured your absence form so that you ask for a date range for the absence, then the status will last until the end of the date range specified by the employee.

You can always edit the length of the period an employee will remain in a status by following the steps above.
