There are several scenarios that you, as an employee, would need to be able to edit your own working days in leave applications:

  • If your company practices flexible working day settings, for example different non-working days for each week, employees are able to edit your working day schedule to match your work days for the week.

  • If you are working in a country with different Public Holidays, you might need to edit working days to match the public holidays in that country manually.

You can do so by utilising the “Edit” feature in the leave application page directly. This is to ensure that the leave applied for in the system reflect the correct number of days taken.

Please do refer to the steps below to learn how to do so in Talenox. 🙂

To view the steps on how to complete a leave application in the system, you can refer to this guide here: Applying for leave with document attached?


Steps To Edit Working Days in Leave Applications

1) After completing the steps of selecting the “Leave Duration” and “Leave Type” within the Leave Application process, you will be able to scroll down and see the Working Days status’ during the leave duration period selected.
2) To edit the days you are looking to change the working day status of, you can select the “Edit” option and adjust the working day status for each day needed.
3) You’ll be given a dropdown list of working day status’ to choose from based on what applies to your leave application days.

Here are the options provided and explanations for each option**:

  • Not Working - Considered a full non-working day for the employee; any leave taken during days with this status will not take up any leave.

  • Holiday - Considered a full-day of holiday for the employee; any leave taken during days with this status will not take up any leave.

  • Holiday (on Working Day) - Considered a full-day of holiday for the employee; any leave taken during days with this status will not take up any leave.

  • Holiday (on First Half of Working Day) - Considered a first-half of the day holiday for the employee; any leave taken during days with this status will take up a half day of leave.

  • Holiday (on Second Half of Working Day) - Considered a second-half of the day holiday for the employee; any leave taken during days with this status will take up a half day of leave.

  • Working Full Day - Considered a full working day for the employee; any leave taken during days with this status will take up one full day of leave.

  • Working First Half of Day - Considered a half working day for the employee; any leave taken during days with this status will take up a half day of leave.

  • Working Second Half of Day - Considered a half working day for the employee; any leave taken during days with this status will take up a half day of leave.

**NOTE: You will notice that there are multiple options with the same functionalities, just that this is a way to differentiate between different company contexts (e.g. for scheduling reasons). Employees can just select the option that applies to their company context.

4) After selecting the Working Days status, you can then click on “Save” to save the edits made to your Working Day Status’.

Thereafter, continue on with the rest of the leave application process.


Hope these steps are clear! You can now easily ensure that your leave application reflects the correct amount of working day leave taken for a specific period selected. 👍🏻
