Is there a way to track vacation and PTO time on an accrual basis ?

My company is evaluating Tempo Timesheets to replace other timesheet tracking software, but we need Tempo to be able to keep a running tally of employee Vacation and PTO time available throughout the year, and on an accrual basis. This needs to be set to automatic as well, not having to manually input available hours for each employee. Does Tempo have this capability or are there plug-ins that will allow this?

Hi Kandy

Timesheets operates on JIRA. Projects and issues (within the projects) are created and JIRA and Tempo allows worklogs to be registered directly on the issues. 

Internal issues can be configured for the purpose of logging work that is common to all users (vacation, sick days, PTO, et cetera). Users need the JIRA "Work on Issue" permission so they can log work against these Issues. 
Please see more information at

For performance reasons it is advised to create new internal issues on a yearly bases.
