What is the best way to manage a project for internal tracking of vacation/sick time?

Hello - 

We have recently started using Tempo Planner and Time Tracking for Jira. I'd like to use the internal issues feature in tempo to plan for vacation time for the team. I am wondering what others have found is the best way for setting up a project for this? For instance, would you recommend just setting up a project that holds issues for vacation/sick time and just leave them in a backlog or sorts?

That is what we do at my company. We have an "IT Overhead" project. Every BA, PM, developer's PTO or "uncapitalizable" cards go there. 


That being said - if there is another method that would be better or more accurate in Jira, I would like to hear about it as well!

Thanks for the follow up Michael; do you just have this set up as a Kanban board?

Yup - everything just sits in the backlog.
