You can now track requests for time off in Pilot, using our new Time Off feature. This feature enables administrators and managers to review and approve time-off requests directly in Pilot, eliminating the need for a separate system to track time off.

What kinds of time off can I track?

You can select from a wide variety of time-off types, depending on your company’s policies. Types of time off that you can choose include:

  • Paid time off
  • Vacation
  • Sick time off
  • Parental leave
  • Personal time off
  • Bereavement
  • Jury duty
  • Military leave
  • Medical leave

How much does the Time Off feature cost?

Nothing! There’s no cost to add the Time Off feature to your Pilot account.

Does this feature automatically sync up with Pilot’s payroll feature?

The Time Off feature is currently for managing and tracking time off only, and it is separate from Pilot’s payroll feature. The ability to manage accruals and time-off balances is not available yet.

How do I get started?

Thanks for your interest! To get started, please see our help article on How to set up the Time Off feature.
