Approving or Rejecting Leave Requests in admation
As a department manager with the ability to schedule and approve leave, you may receive leave requests from time-to-time from people within your department. Leave requests are always sent through to you as an email. From within the email, you should click the Process Leave Request button.
You can also click onto your Name in the system, then click into Away Day Manager.
From the resulting page, you'll find a calendar which shows the days that user has requested out of the office. Because the leave is pending in the system, it will show as a Yellow bar. You can then review the leave request and Approve Leave or Reject Leave as you need to. You can also Make Edits on the request, or Delete It altogether.
Once you approve or reject leave, you'll be prompted to send an email to the person requesting leave, to let them know about your decision. Fill in the email as needed and click Send to finalise your decision. If you don't send the email, your decision won't be recorded in the system.
If there are multiple department managers for a given department, all managers will need to approve the leave. This is shown by a Pending (0/2) button in the screenshot above, and represents 2 managers needing to approve the leave.
Once the leave request is fully approved, it will show in blue on the screen.
You may also want to add custom away day types in the system.
