Staff Annual Leave Tracker - Google Sheet

How to update

If you're using our free Google Sheet for tracking annual leave you may want to create a new copy for the coming year.

This is not strictly necessary, as the leave management sheet allows you to report on multiple years simultaneously, but your employees cannot have different allowances for different years. So if you need to keep track of a change in leave allowances, the best way to do this is to make a new copy every year.

Steps to update for next year

  1. Save a new copy of the Google Sheet so you don’t overwrite your current version.
  2. In the new copy, update the month and year in the Calendar sheet

Very simple to navigate and use.

The system as a whole is very simple to navigate and use. It doesn't try and do more than what it needs to do so there are no complex layers to try and find your way around. Everything is so streamlined that it makes it easy to learn and deploy.
