Setting Weekly Schedules

This guide tells you how to configure the weekly work schedule for your employees. When users request time off, Hrvey only counts the time that is outside of their normal work schedule - so e.g. weekend days are not counted. Note that custom schedules are a Premium feature - on the free tier, all employees use the default schedule of Mon-Fri.
