Outstanding Leave not reducing when leave is taken

I have an employee that has accrued Long Service Leave. I have created a payroll item called LSL. I have entered his accrued hours under the Leave Details section. The accrual is accruing correctly. 
However, when I use the LSL pay item, the hours paid do not come off the entitled hours. 
Is there a way of linking the LSL pay item to the LSL entitlement?

Hi Matt,

By default, Accounts has 2 'Other' leave types called Other 1 and Other 2.  Try editing one of these payroll items to record your LSL accrual and this should do the trick.

You can also change the payroll item name Other 1 to LSL to make it easier to identify.  I also suggest navigating to drop down menu Edit > Preferences > Payroll & Employees > Company Preferences and changing the name here as well.  By using payroll items Other 1 or Other 2, the updated leave accruals will display on the employee record, pay records, payslips and reports.

I hope this helps.
