The Personnel Management Types (Sick, Vacation, Day in Lieu, Free Day, etc.) are hard-coded in farmerswife, yet they can be modified to comply with company types and language. There are various ways in which this can be done.
- Add new custom Personnel Management Types to the list.
- Rename Personnel Event Types using the Language String Operator found in the farmerswife Server.
- Hide Personnel Event Types in Pop Up when making a Personnel Management Booking (does not apply to the Web Client or iOS interface).
Add Custom Personnel Management Type
In this example, a new Custom Type is added in Danish: “Ferie” (Vacation). In the Long Form, click on the Personnel Tree icon and select Custom Type Setup > Edit Personnel Event Types...
Add the new Type Name and, if useful, an optional Reference number. Any color can be selected for the new Type and it can be counted toward days worked by ticking the box under Work.
The new Type will now be displayed at the bottom of the standard Types when making a Personnel Management Booking. The standard Types can also be renamed or hidden (explained in the following sections).
To display the total day count for the new custom Personnel Management Type in the Personnel Tree, go into the Toolbox under the Settings tab > Personnel Tree filter > tick the box next to the new Type under section Display Total For Custom Types. If you do not want to display any of the standard Types, deselect them above.
Mouse over the Booking to show what Type of Personnel Management Booking it is.
Custom Personnel Types - No conflict
From version 7.1 onwards it will be possible to set Custom Personnel types to no create a conflict. This way you can use them to indicate observations on the day and this indication will not create a conflict. And it will allow you to book this Custom Personnel Type on top of any other Project Booking. It will also allow you to add a Custom Personnel Type to a specific day, and for that day the User still appears as available if you need to replace an Object Class with a member.
