    I’m looking for anyone that’s using Dayforce for their time tracking and has it set up on allotments/ buckets – how they call it?

    We’re a BC-based company looking to have our vacation tracking/ reporting simplified. We are using Dayforce with Power Pay and have it currently set up on accruals, and allow people to use vacation as they go. Our main issue is that Balances are not taking into account what would be accrued in the future, and only show what is available as of now (ie. I have accrued 5 days by now, and am putting in a request for 10 days in 4 months – it will show a negative balance because I haven’t accrued that time yet, but it doesn’t show anywhere that I would have it accrued by the time I go away/ come back).

    I’m looking for some feedback from someone who has Dayforce set up on allotments – how is it working? How does it flow into Power Pay? What information does it show as $ value of the accrual on paystubs?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Ewa,

    I do not have much of an answer for you. I can just agree, we have the same issue. We also use DayForce and are in BC, when an employee asks if they will have enough accruals for a future date. I look at how many pay periods are left before the leave and then add up how many hours they accrue each pay period. It is not a perfect solution. Let me know if you do discover a better way!

    Hi Ewa – I happened to see that you posted this question a few weeks back. I lead a small team of Dayforce Consultants that would be available to help you with this, if you’re interested in learning more please let me know.
