When an employee applies leave and if weekend is in between, then the deduction should count the weekend days as well.

Reproducing the Issue

  • Suppose the weekend is Saturday and Sunday
  • The employee applies for a first leave on Friday and second separate leave request on Monday. The system to deduct Saturday and Sunday automatically i.e 4 days should be deducted.


  • It is not possible to automatically deduct the weekends when there are seperate leaves on Friday and Monday.
  • You can have a Take Rule to restrict employees from requesting separate leaves on Friday and Monday. The sample rule is as below:



  • If the unit of the time type is in hours, please use the function "Get absence in hours for period()" instead of "Get absence in days for period()" 
  • Change the value of 'Time Type External Code' to the external code of the time type where you'll be assigning the Take Rule.
