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.
Accessing Leave Requests via the Away Day Manager
You can also click onto your Name in the system, then click into Away Day Manager.
If you're a department manager, you'll see your department's team members and their scheduled leave, as well as your own. Without these permissions, you'll only see the option to request leave.
Approving Leave Requests via the Away Day Manager
Where 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. At that point, the user going on leave will receive a notification with that approval.
Note that if you don't send the email, your decision won't be recorded in the system.
Where a Department has Multiple Managers
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.
How do I know if a leave request is fully approved?
Once the leave request is fully approved, it will show in blue on the screen.
