Some locations may contain several VLGs that will carry over period to period maintaining the same limits. ARCOS has two buttons available to make enabling VLGs for future periods as simple as a mouse click. Depending on how you want to copy the VLGs over will determine which button you select.
The Copy VLGS from Previous Period WITH Employees button allows VLGs and their limits to be copied to a future vacation management period and maintain the employees’ currently assigned VLG.
However, the Copy VLGS from Previous Period button only allows the VLGs and their limits to be copied to a future vacation management period. When using this option, employees will be removed from their currently assigned VLG for the future period only and will need to be either reassigned or a assigned to a different VLG for the future period.
Note: If the Copy VLGS from Previous Period button is mistakenly pressed, you can delete all VLGs from the period/location you are viewing and click the Copy VLGS from Previous Period WITH Employees button to recopy the VLGs over with the employees assigned.
