Setting up LeaveWizard – Basic settings


The Settings page in LeaveWizard allows you to define the essential behaviour of the system. Most of these preferences can remain unchanged and you will still have a very flexible system in your hands however if you wish to understand in-depth how LeaveWizard works we recommend reading further.



We will go through each section on the page to provide a details explanation of what they mean.
