Accessing the Away Day Board to Schedule Leave for Other Users
Users that have been allocated Department Manager privileges will be able to schedule leave for their team members. There are two ways to schedule leave for members of your department.
Head to Resources then click on the Away Day Board on the top right hand side of your screen.
Or click on your name. Then click the Away Day Manager button.
Viewing Staff Away Days
From the Away Day Manager, you can update your displays using the dropdown field to select either of these time periods from a given date:
- One week
- Two weeks
- One month
- Six months
- One year
To schedule leave as a department manager on behalf of a team member, select the person by clicking the plus icon next to their name. Any existing holiday leave will show on this screen in blue. Any leave that is yet to be approved will be shown in yellow.
Start by clicking the plus icon next to a user's name. Then enter the Leave Details as required. You can nominate:
- Whether the leave requested is a part or full day;
- Leave start date;
- Leave end date;
- Type of leave;
- Description of the leave requested.
The Leave Type field can be configured from the Admin screen under Away Day Types. When you're a department manager, each away day that you schedule is automatically approved. Users without department manager privileges can request leave from their accounts. In this case, you'll need to approve their leave request when you receive it. Click Save once you're ready to schedule and grant the leave for that user.
Managing, Editing and Removing Staff Leave
Any holiday leave that you have scheduled in the system, along with any other form of approved leave, will show on this screen in blue.
You can edit or remove scheduled leave by clicking on one of these blue bars to show more information about that away day. Then click the pencil icon to edit, or the rubbish bin icon to delete scheduled away days.
