Predict PTO for planning purposes
In some other timesheet or pto systems I've used, there was an awesome feature where it would predict PTO time down the road. This is super handy for employees who want to see how much time they'll have, e.g. 3 months from now I see that I can take 20 hrs of PTO.

It would make it much easier for planning purposes if the PTO reflected what the annual accrued balance will be. Only showing the current accrual and/or allowed max does not enable managers to plan for future PTO requests.

I agree. The current system is great for a current PTO balance assessment however it's very difficult to plan and approve future PTO requests. I'd like to see a calculation of the used PTO plus planned PTO. This value could be subtracted from the total annual accrual PTO amount letting the employee know how much more PTO they can plan to take for the remainder of the year.
