Good afternoon - I hope you are having a great start to the week,


We included vacation days total, and vacation days balance to the API, and we noticed the following:


Vacation days total values don’t match with any value on the employee’s vacation balance, nor with Paid vacation – Carryover from previous year, Paid vacation – Entitlement, Paid vacation – Entitlement, Paid vacation – Entitlement values included in a custom report.

What does Vacation days total from API reffer to?


Vacation days balance values are empty for most active employees, where is the data comming from?


Thank you,

Hi @Nataliacasta,

​​​​​​The API endpoint currently displays the balance with the following logic:Entitlement - Taken = Balance

The employee profile displays the balance with the following logic:Entitlement - Taken - Planned = Balance

Here you will find more information regarding: The Personio Personnel Data APIs.
