How to read your Time Off Tracker for employees

Review time off balances directly from your Gusto employee account. 

Follow the steps below to view the Time Off Tracker:

  1. Click the Time Off tab.

  2. If you have more than one policy, select which one you'd like to review from the drop-down.

  3. Review Activity to find a breakdown of all changes to your PTO balance.

This feature is only available to Complete and Concierge customers. If you don't see the Time Off tab it means you don't have access to this feature. Admins can upgrade their product plan at anytime.
