Figure 29.10. Accruals

Accruals are generally used to keep track of your balances for paid time off. If your administrator has set up accruals for you, an Accruals link will be located in the gray status bar above the time entry grid next to the date range for the sheet. Clicking on this link will display all the accruals that have been assigned to you, along with the type of accrual and remaining hour balances. A soft accrual type will allow you to exceed the hour balance when entering time taken. A hard accrual type will not allow you to exceed the hour balance allocated to you. An administrator may also create a hidden accrual balance, which functions like a hard accrual except the current balance will not be shown to you.
