Applying and approving time off

Almost any thinkable format works.

 

On vacation tomorrow

wfh next Monday 

leave from mm-dd to mm-dd

sick leave on Oct 19th

on leave from Thursday to next Wednesday

..


There's a confirm dialog that prevents you from creating a wrong vacation request. 


While applying for time off you can also state the reason like On vacation tomorrow for attending a funeral. In this case attending a funeral shows up as a remark in the leave request. 


If you're a manager you will receive leave requests with interactive buttons using which you can approve or reject leave requests. 


More details on how to apply for time off but you can ignore this one for a later date.


Deleting vacation requests

You can type delete leaves to see a list of your most recent vacations that you can delete. If you want to edit a vacation request, we request you delete it and then apply a new one. You can only delete future requests. To delete a past or approved request, please ask your manager.
