Requesting Leave

Requesting Leave


All users can request leave from the dashboard using the 'Request...' button on the sub menu and selecting 'Request Leave' from the drop down.



Employees can also request leave for themselves from the 'My Leave' page using the 'Request Leave For Me' button on that sub menu.



Administrators and Line Managers can also request leave for other users as well as themselves from the 'Leave Requests' page using the 'Request Leave For...' button on that sub menu.



All of these actions will take you to a 'New Event' page to allow a leave event to be requested.
