• An Attendance Type defines the category of each type of attendance available to employees, such as Sick, Vacation, or Personal.
     
  • Attendance Codes are more specific subcategories linked to Attendance Types. Attendance codes contain a short description, long description, and status.

    For example, you could define subcategories for your Sick attendance type, such as: Daily, Short-Term Disability, Long-Term Disability, and FMLA.
