The user menu is accessed via the 'Head' icon on the far right hand side of the main menu and provides access to user specific setting from a drop down menu. The drop down displays your user name and LeaveWizard status (Employee) at the top and provides 3 menu options to choose.
The Help menu item takes you to the LeaveWizard support portal where you can get access to other help articles similar to this.
The Logout menu item logs you out of the web app and returns you to the LeaveWizard web site.
Below the main menu is the Dashboard sub-menu. This band runs the full width of the page. The title of the sub-menu and the available functions will change depending on the LeaveWizard page you are on.
The Dashboard sub-menu has a single 'Request...' button to allow you to quickly make requests. The drop down menu allows you to select 'Request Leave' or optionally 'Request Overtime' if overtime has been enabled by your company.
The Dashboard is split into 4 sections.
This section allows you to quickly see what future (unexpired) events you have for the selected month. It has a mini 1 month calendar below which the events are listed along with their current status. The 'See All My Leave' provides a link to the My Leave page.
The My allowance section shows all your event types that have an associated allowance. Your annual and remaining allowances for the current leave year are displayed. Please note that your allowances are not set by LeaveWizard we just provide a convenient way to manage leave. If you have any inquires about your allowances, please contact someone in your HR department first for more information.
Typically the leave year is the same as the calendar year and runs from 1st January to 31st December. However, many companies run a different leave year. The 'Allowance and leave from' text below the allowance display specifies your leave year. Your work pattern
is also shown along with who approves your leave. The 'See All Allowances'
provides a link to the
The calendar shows who in the company is on leave. Although it is possible you will be able to see all user leave on this calendar, many companies restrict which users are displayed. A common restriction is just users in the same work group. The calendar can show all leave types and can highlight Public Holidays and company specific holidays if they exist.
At the top left is a navigation area allowing you to change the displayed calendar dates. At the top right hand side you can choose between a week or month calendar view.
As a quick way to make a leave request you can double-click on a day on the calendar and a new request will be initiated starting from that day. You can also double click on an existing unexpired event of yours and edit it.
Clicking the 'View Calendar Legend' at the bottom of the calendar will toggle showing the colour legend. The 'See Other Calendar Views' provides a link to the Calendars
Who's On Leave?
The Who's On Leave? section provides a way to display a list of all leave requests for a specified period. From the work group drop down you can select the work group whose users you want to list. By default all work groups will be chosen. You can change which work group is chosen by default from the My Settings menu item in your User Menu. In this way you will always get the same selected work group displayed when you log in. From the 'Period' drop down you can specify the time frame you want to see. By default this will show the current month. The drop down provides some pre-defined time periods or you can select a custom period and enter a specific start and end date.
At the bottom of the page is a page footer with links and information about LeaveWizard.
