Expected behavior


It is possible to start and end a leave request on a non-working day but the deduction is calculated based on your work schedule and the time type setting.

There are use cases where you would simply want to request vacation starting from 1st of a month which may be a Sunday or you simply want to apply leave from Sunday to Sunday and then the deduction happens based on the work schedule and the setting on time type.
