    • Philip Norton

      Pleased to hear it, thanks for the feedback Mike 🙂

  • Phillip Cole

    Holiday tracker is great. Could you consider adding a separate option for 1/2 day sick vs. 1/2 day vacation?

    • Philip Norton

      Hi Philip, I am working on a more flexible version of the tool which will allow you to specify half day allocations for different types of leave. Watch this space! Phil

      • Philip Norton

        Hi Philip, this feature is now available in the premium version of the holiday calendar sheet which you can find out more about here

      • Gisela Gomes

        I recorded a half day leave on my tracker but it counted as a full day. And I think that I have the premium file because
        I bought it today, could you n kindly advise?

        • phil192

          Hi Gisela, when you recorded the leave, did you change the leave amount to 0.5? It is defaulted to 1 so it will record it as a full day unless you change it.

  • Steve Chase

    Hi, absolutely love your sheets, thank you so much indeed, with reference to the Holiday tracker, would it be possible to add another macro button for non certified sick days please basically an option to track sick days without medical certificate? thank you, Steve.

    • phil192

      Hi Steve. On the premium leave tracker all of the leave types are customisable so it is possible to use one of them to track non-certified sick days.

  • Gisela Gomes

    Could w please get a training tracking tool? That records and tracks the training for the company.
