The Staff App records staff Check In and Check Out times in an HH:mm format from the Attendance app. This information is displayed at the top of the Staff Hours pop-up for the supervising cook or catering manager to enter the total worked hours, overtime, non-productive hours and any absence before signing off your hours worked at the end of the week.
Mark has not met his Contract hours so the calculated Total Worked hours  will be logged and the Absence hours  will be automatically calculated.
When recording an Absence set the Absence type  drop-down menu defaults to blank to make sure staff enter a reason for their absence., for recording an absence you have the following options:
- Absent time – this is the default absent type
- Holiday – use this if the employee is on holiday
- Sick – use this if someone has called in sick or goes home sick
- Unpaid leave – use this as required when unpaid leave has been agreed.
NOTE The Absence type  drop-down menu defaults to blank to make sure staff enter a reason for their absence.
After setting the Absence type enter the Absence reason , there is a 250-character limit.
