If you don’t have the Payments in Lieu setting enabled, as detailed below, there is a box to enter the number of days to adjust the leave allowance.

You can enter a positive or negative number to adjust how many days allowance this employee has. It’ll be reset to 0 when you reset the leave allowance.
