PeopleForce is an HRM system for your business with highly developed features and tools. In this article, we'll tell you how to properly prepare and configure the system for use according to your company's requirements.

After general and core settings, we recommend moving on to the Core HR module settings. To do this, go to ''Settings > Core HR.'' This section includes settings for leave policy, work patterns, compensation, onboarding, offboarding, probation policies, termination reasons and types, employee fields, asset categories and documents.

Leave policies

In the "Leave Policies" tab, you can easily create all the leave types used in your company. To get started, click the "Add leave type" button, fill in the Name field, and specify the tracking time in days or hours. Finally, save the data you've entered to set up your leave policies.

Important: When creating leave types in the system, it is crucial to specify whether they will be counted in hours or days, and this setting can only be defined during the initial creation of the type.
