How To Generate a Carry Over Transactions Report using Ad-Hoc Reporting

Ad-hoc report is a tool in TribeHR that you can use to create customized reports. This report produces a list of all carry over transactions, the value that was carried over (credit) OR removed (debit) for each employee (in both hours and days), that occurred during the a specific reporting period.
