The Leave Year Start on the account will set the year range that all users’ leave balances will span across.

Setting a new LYSD:

To set the Leave Year Start Date on your account: Navigate to setting > all settings > Leave Settings. Near the end of this page, there is a section to add in the start date:

Add in your chosen date and click submit at the bottom.

Alternatively, this can be done on the Leave Balance Report.

Applying this to Balances:

Once the Leave Year Start Date has been added to the settings, you will need to generate the Leave Balance Report. To do this go to reports > Leave Balance Report.

The report may already be generated if you added the LYSD in the leave settings but if not, add it here:

And click update settings and the report will be generated.

This report when generated will show all user’s leave balances in one report, for the current year and previous years.
