When an absence time type deducts a time account the remaining balance is displayed to the employees in various UI's such as Time Account Overview and Leave request approval.Some customers don't need for some specific absence entutlement not show the employee the remaining balance .

For Example : When there is an entitlement for a specific number of paid sickness customer do not want to encourage employees using this entitlement by hiding the remaining balance. In the time admin workbench the balance is of course displayed for time Administrators.



Hide a remaining balance from employees UI in order not to encourage an employee taking a leave .This is a specific customers requirement from customers who grant a specific number of days for paid illnessess

Configuration Steps :

  • Admin Center -> Manage Data
  • Search Time Profile
  • Set the option "Hide balance" at time type level to 'Yes' when you don´t want to display the remaining balance.


In the Time Off Section of the employees PP3 Profile, the time type will only be hidden if you are logged in as the employee who is requesting the leave.

The time type will always be displayed for Admins, even if hide balance is set to Yes:
