Before we get into "How to assign Attendance Policies", we need to remember 2 import points mentioned below:

  1. Attendance Policies are assigned at user level (i.e. employee level). 
    This means: You can create unlimited number of Attendance Policies, but each Attendance Policy will function only when it is "assigned to the desired/required employee". If a Attendance Policies is created but not assigned, it's as good as no policy! :)
  2. Editing/Changing an existing Attendance Policies, will affect ALL employees who're already assigned that Cycle
    This means: You are allowed to edit any existing Attendance Policy at any time, but always keep in mind that any changes to the policy will affect the employees who're already assigned that Attendance Policy(s).
