    Hello- Not only would the half days for holidays be important but also half day for regular vacations. I have a colleague going out of town but will be capable to work part of the day however, based on the calendar feature is will show her completely unavailable.

    I agree - any time off whether a holiday or a vacation day should be able to be a half day. We want to make sure that if someone has off it doesn't block off their entire day as unavailable for taking on projects.ย

    Hi, just as an FYI in case it helps any users: we have worked around this by creating a special "vacations" project with a customized workflow and logging vacations as tasks that appear in a specific color. It gives us the flexibility to log part time workers, half day absences, recurring absences etc. whilst making it clearly visible in the workload view.ย

    Hi!

    Just another person requesting this--after working at numerous places, requesting/taking half days of PTO is incredibly common. We just started onboarding with Wrike and I would love to use this feature, however it skews our reporting of days off because I don't have a great way to truly list what people have taken versus not taken.

    PLEASE IMPLEMENT THIS :)

    Well, I would've just used this capability if it existed.ย  I'll look into Lucy Freeman's solution some other time.ย  Our users will have to guage whether the solution fits well in our expected usage for other things.

    Please rate this as one upvote request for the partial day off capability.ย  (Yes, I upvoted onย Katy Slimming's post.)

    For what it's worth...

    Thanks!

    This would be a great feature to have. Our team do take half days off work hence it would be valuable to allocate hours to leave rather a whole day

    Hello,

    ย 

    Lucy Freemans' solution is nice, we are thinking about the same, but it doesn't help avoiding colleagues to be assigned during their hollidays. Or you must double-record the holidays both in your custom project and calendars as well. The half day would be nice!

    My team would also like to see this feature. We'd actually like to see the ability to divide it into hours. We often have people who have a doctor's appointment or need to take their car for service that take 1 or 2 hrs off instead of a full day or half day.

    I've just been given the responsibility for tracking all PTO in my office. I was hoping to use Wrike as we continue to ramp up using the platform. However.... legally (and often in practice), people are allowed to take their PTO hourly. At least a half day would be a start and be a great addition.

    I have been using Wrike for over 3 years, and really like the program, but this is one missing feature that has always baffled me.ย  I also use the "Vacation Project" work-around to clearly show vacations in the Gantt Chart, but doing this does not take advantage of some of the critical features that adding PTO into the associate's Work Schedule performs.ย  When time is added to the Work Schedule under Account Management, it will automatically adjust task timeliness that are assigned to the associate. It will also show that the associate is "unavailable" when assigning a task.ย  That does not happen with the "work around".

    I would like to add that it would be most ideal to be able to confirm vacation time in an hourly format and not just half day or full day.ย  The workaround of creating a vacation project and adding tasks for each person to confirm hours is acceptable for a short time but long term it would be ideal for staff members to be able to enter their own vacation time in hours in their calendar which would translate back to their availability for project work.ย

    We've just run across this internally. We have a proposal to run our leave tracking through Wrike, but half-days is the stumbling block for it. As said previously, it baffles me why this would not be an obvious thing to implement from the outset.

    We would also really benefit from this feature. Greater flexibility with available working hours is needed overall to be honest:

    • Half days as part of a users' work schedule (as well as annual leave)
    • Flexibility on the working hours in a day - not everyone produced 8 hours of deliverable work every day!

    I totally agree with Hannah's comment above - the number of hours in a day needs to be adjustable - we have 7 hour working days here.ย  And 1/2 days should be standard functionality
