  3. Complete:

    1. Name

Half-day absences

You can also submit absences for half a day only. To do so, turn on the "Half-day absence in selected days" slider:

Note that entering a date range and selecting a half-day absence will decrease the capacity for each specified day by 50%. This means that half-day will apply to each day of this date range.
