How to view and book time off

The Leave page gives you a breakdown of any holiday you have booked. 

Your allowances (if entered by your manager) detail how much holiday you have remaining.

Requesting Holiday and Other Leave

If your employer has enabled the Leave Request feature, you can request Leave using the blue Plus button at the top of the page.

When requesting leave, choose the type of leave (only Holiday comes out of your holiday allowance), and start/end dates. 

Half-days are set using the AM/PM drop-downs on the start and end dates. Add a message for your employer or manager and hit 'Continue'.

Suggesting hours in your leave request

If your business has enabled it, and if your holiday balance is expressed in hours, rather than days, then you may be able to suggest the number of hours of Holiday in your request, as well as the days on which it occurs.

Enter either the Total Hours for all days of the leave, or the Daily Hours individually.

Note: Your employer is able to change these figures at the point of approving your leave. The confirmed total hours will be shown when viewing any approved leave on your account.

Checking leave clashes with colleagues

Your company may have allowed you to see your colleagues' leave when booking your own, so you can make a holiday request for a time when there aren't too many people off already. If so, you can use the Who's on Leave Calendar on both web and mobile to check when your colleagues are already away:

If your holiday request exceeds the amount of holiday you have remaining for the year, you may receive the message ‘You have not got enough holiday remaining in the leave year to request this holiday’. Please note, however, that this notification may have been disabled by your manager.

Holiday Approval/Denial

The request will then be sent to your employer or manager. If your request is approved, the holiday will appear on the rota, and you will be notified. 

 If your request is denied by your employer or manager, you will still be notified.
