Cancelling leave as an Employee

If you would like to cancel leave that is either pending approval or has already been approved and is in the future you need to follow these steps:

1. Go to the ‘My Leave’ section of your dashboard (see below screenshot) and find the event that you wish to cancel in the list.

2. For any leave that is yet to be taken, when you hover your mouse over the event, you will see a ‘cancel’ option at the end of the entry (see above screenshot). Simply click this option, you will be prompted to confirm the cancellation and an email will be sent to your designated approver advising that the leave has been cancelled.
