Hi Emily,

One of the first things to check is your employees's record.

Double click on the employee name to edit the record, then change the drop down from Personal Info to Payroll and Compensation Info.
Click on Leave Details on the right.

On the Holiday Tab, make sure that the Maximum number of hours field is BLANK.  Accounts will not accrue leave if this field has 0.00 in it.  (A common error because many businesses do not have a maximum number of accrual hours).

Re-save the record.

You should then refresh each pay.

I hope this helps.

Hi Emily,

Accounts can display portions of time as Decimals or Minutes.  The preference can be found from the drop down menu Edit > Preferences > General > Company Preferences.

Switch your preference from Decimal to Minutes.  Then, enter the hours on the employee record as .07694 and accounts will accept the 5 decimal places and convert the amount to hours and minutes.  So, if your accrual rate is per hour, Accounts will change .07694 to 0:04:37 - for every hour work, the employee accrues 4 minutes and 37 seconds AL.  Save the record.

You can then change the preference back to Decimal if you prefer and Accounts will convert that figure back to .07694.

Decimal figures are identified with a decimal point (.), Minutes are identified with a colon (:).

I hope this helps.
