Attendance - Solution To: Annoying Accrual Reminder when Opening the Software

Issue: When opening Gradience Attendance, you may see this popup window:

Cause: This pop-up is a reminder to run your Time-Off Accruals when you open the software. The reason you are getting this reminder is that the program has been instructed to remind you to do this.

The choice you make depends on whether you want the program to handle accruing Time-Off automatically. 

  • If you choose "Do not allow Time-Off to accrue", the software will never automatically give anyone any Time-Off at all.

If you end up selecting "Accrue Time-Off Automatically", please make sure the rest of the area looks like this:

When you have it set as shown above, the program will check on a daily basis to see whether anyone should earn any Time-Off on that day. If on that day no one should earn any Time-Off, no one earns any. This does not mean people will actually earn Time-Off 7 days a week. It merely means that the software will check 7 days a week to see when and whether to give anyone any Time-Off at all.

--NOTE-- You can ignore that month and day at the bottom. Those are from older version of the software and are no longer of function. 

--IMPORTANT-- Before you set your Time-Off accruals to run automatically, we recommend you first:
