Humans Resources



The human resources module was developed by an external contributor SALTO CONSULTING. The explanations below have been taken from the instructions, provided in French only, with the module. * French documentation on the implementation of regulated absences is available on the download page.

The HR module was created in order to be easily adapted to French law, but it can be fully parameterized according to the rights of any country.

This section allows to manage the society’s Humans Resources.

This system comes in addition to the standards of the management of absences.

Used to manage absences that must be validated, controlled and have values to be regulated according to French law.

Start to define the:

You can choose the leave entitlement standard for each type of contract. The employee may reserve periods of leave of absence according to his rights.

you will be able to manage:

  • The quantities acquired over a period of time.

  • The period of validity of a quantity of absence.

  • The possibility to take earlier absences over the period being acquired.

  • The number of days before and after which the absence request can be made.

  • Define specific acquisition rules.

  • validate or reject an absence request.


A project dedicated to these regulated absences is created and makes it possible to store the requested days of absence as planned time and the days of absence validated as working time thus making it possible to integrate these absences in the planning.


The calculation of the number of days represented by absence is done on the basis of working days.

The working days are defined in Global Parameters and calendar associated with employee: holidays, non-working days.

Environmental parameters

The properties below is visible only when the HR module is enabled.


An employee is a Resource whose property “is an employee” is checked in the screen resources.

Once the resources are saved as employees, you can manage them from the employee screen. You find the same fields of description as the resources. In this section, the employee can see the person who manage its leaves periods.

Each time an employee is defined, a default contract is automatically created on the entry date of the resource if it is filled in. If the date is not specified, the current date on creation is retrieved.


A calculation error may occur if the entry date is not entered. In this case, on the resource screen:

  1. uncheck the box is an employee,

  2. fill in the date of entry,

  3. save,

  4. check again is an employee.

The calculation of the rights will then be reset with the new date.

Employee manager

A manager is a resource whose properties “is an employee” and “is absence manager” are checked.

The management of an employee is dated, which allows to change manager or temporarily delegate management to another manager (absences).

Manager is a resource and the manager of leaves

Box “is an employee” and “is manager of leaves” is checked

A manager must be an employee.

An employee manager can make absence requests in lieu of employees.

He can validate or reject employee absentee requests that he manages.


The absence manager manages the absences of the employees attached to him. He does not have access to the module settings. He does not have an administrator role.

Manager Screen

Manager Screen

Leave system Administrator

He is the administrator of the Leave System. He will define Leave Types, Contract Types, …

In order to be able to manage and configure the human resources module after its installation, you must access the global parameters.

A special additional HR section allows you to define the administrator of absences and regulated rights.

If an employee does not have a manager, the administrator of the Regulated absence module acts as manager.

The administrator is obligatorily a leave manager


When a resource is no longer “used”, all the elements of the Regulated absence module are deleted by the module:

  • Assignments to activities associated with type of absence

  • Time spent generated following validated absence requests

  • Planned times generated due to absence requests not yet validated

  • Absence requests

  • Acquired rights

  • Contracts

  • Links with his managers

Leaves Dashboard

A dashboard is available to absence managers

Leaves Dahsboard

Leaves dashboard

The filter bar allows you to filter the information presented in the dashboard


Filter bar

Leaves Calendar displays informations based on filters applied by managed employee

The Susbcribe tells you that the request was made late

You can export the calendar into Excel format


The synthesis is also displayed according to the filters selected beforehand,

and gives the number of days remaining to be taken by type of leave and managed employees

Leave period to process

In this section, appears the list of absences to be processed, that is to say under the “recorded” status

Leaves types

This part allows you to create the types of absences regulated.

A corresponding activity (= name of absence type) is created on the project dedicated to absences management.

All employees (resource registered as employee) are assigned to this activity

creating types of absences

Leaves types screen

  • You can choose the workflow that will be attached to human resources

  • you can defined who received an internal alert or an email on the creation, the update, the delete and/or the treatment of the leaves

Employment contract type

This section allows you to create the different contracts that are in effect in your company

The types of contracts allow to have rules of acquisition of different regulated absences according to the contract of employment of an employee

You can only have one type of default contract


example in France

  • Executive contract = No acquisition rule

  • Full-time frame contract = RTT

  • Part time frame contract = No RTT

  • etc.

  • If you have created several types of regulated absences and attached them to all your contracts (check box on default or on everything), these types will be visible in this section.

If you are missing types of absences, you can create them from this screen:

  • Click on the Add button

  • A pop up opens and proposes to fill in the same fields as on the screen of the types of regulated absences

Why end a contract?

  • Resignation

  • Change of the status (non managment -> management)

  • Change of the quotity (100% -> 80%)

  • Going to retire…

These different reasons may lead to changes in the rules governing the acquisition of the rights of absence.

Regulated leaves parameters

The regulation of absences is based on the rights to take absences acquired over a given period.

It is therefore based on values to be given to attributes of regulation according to the type of absence (ex: Paid leave, RTT, sick leave, legal leave, etc.), and the type of contract associated with the employee (Ex: Full time, Part time).

General acquisition of rights

When you create a Employment contract type, you have several contractual values to fill in.

  • If you check on “all” the entered values will be on all contract types.

  • These values can not be changed after they are saved.

For any change, the creation of a new type of absence is necessary.

You can display only the resources corresponding to the selected skill.

Choosing the skill level will allow you to display a more relevant availability rate.

When you select a project in the display filters, its start and end dates are retrieved from the start and end fields of availability.
