What is TOIL?
TOIL stands for Time Off in Lieu and is a configurable Request type. TOIL is generally used when an employee has worked additional time outside their normal working hours, once approved, this will then give them additional Allowance in their Leave Allowance to take as Leave.
It is possible to rename TOIL to a title that is more suitable for your company, this could be Overtime, Day in Lieu, Comp Time etc. Go to System Config > General Settings > TOIL Label > Type a new name.
For the purpose of this article, we've kept the name as TOIL, however if you change the configuration, the labelling throughout the Application will change too.
TOIL can be switched on in the Team configuration. Go to Organization > Team.
Select a Team and in the Main Details tab, tick the TOIL Enabled? Box and an additional tab will appear for TOIL Settings.
Fill out the details in the TOIL Settings tab, being sure to define an Approval Flow. When you're happy with this, click Save Changes.
Once TOIL has been activated on the Team setting, users will get an additional option when submitting a Request.
The employee will select the date that they worked in addition to their normal working hours and submit this for approval, as per the approval flow.
Once approved, the employee's Leave Allowance will be increased. This will be shown in the Allowances tab. TOIL is only shown here, it is not reflected in the calendar.
When Time off in Lieu (TOIL) is requested in Appogee, the amount of time specified is added to the user's allowance. TOIL doesn't deduct from the user's allowance, it reimburses the allowance instead.
Once a TOIL request has been approved, the user can then request leave (as normal) and the amount will be deducted from their allowance.
