Absence Management

Hi Experts and Legends,

A quick question about absence in D365. In older version of AX there used to be the ability to enter an absence request or absence registration. I understand that this has been deprecated but there are still menu options for absence groups, absence reasons, etc, and it seems excessive to recommend using Talent just for absence management. There are round about ways of creating an absence project and booking time to a user against a project activity which might be holiday, sickness, etc. Curious to understand if anyone has done anything around absence in D365 F&O please?
