What is the difference between an absence project type and absence in the admin panel?

There are two different features in Silverbucket to set absences for people:

- Absence projects
- Absences marked in the admin panel

These are usually distinguished from each other depending on the length of absence.

People’s holidays are handled with projects where the project type is set as 'absence'. The project works in a similar manner as a normal project would, but the allocations made for an absence-type project will be marked with a bolded border to indicate the absence.

In this example the project '9999 Holidays' is marked as an absence project in its dashboard

For long-time absences where the absent people should also be taken off from the total capacity, you can use the admin-panel option “absences”.

As an example, a long-time absence could be a maternity leave or student leave.
