Each year we publish a comprehensive leave record that federal employees can use to track their daily record of annual and sick leave, comp, and credit hours used. Our updated 2019 Excel Leave Chart is designed for active federal employees that are planning their retirement and need to establish realistic target retirement dates. The new Excel 2019 Leave Record Spreadsheet also helps federal employees maximize their annuity through prudent management of their leave balances.

Please share our 2019 leave chart with everyone in your organization. The chart tracks all leave balances and you are able to annotate your work schedule on the chart as well.

A few leave chart users reported a problem with opening the leave spreadsheet, the Excel chart was opening up for them in protected mode and they were not able to enter data. If your spreadsheet opens in protected view click the “enable editing” button in the yellow bar at the top of the form. However, if you don’t see the enable editing button you may have an older version of Excel or your IT department may have to allow the form to pass without restrictions.

A Microsoft Office consulting firm advised us that If the spreadsheet only opens in the protected view status security settings on your agency’s LAN and network will have to be made by your IT staff to allow the form to function. Some agencies increase their security settings to lock out certain documents based on the parameters the IT specialist selects. We do include several hyperlinks in our spreadsheet to link users to additional supporting information such as our sick leave conversion chart and that may be the cause. If you have this problem when opening the form I suggest talking with your IT people to have them allow the form to pass without restrictions.
