If you have been assigned leave in your employee profile, you'll be able to request leave and submit it for approval.
Submit a Leave Request
To submit a leave request:
- Go to Leave > Leave Requests > New Leave Request.
- Select a Leave Type.
- Enter the First Date of Leave and Last Date of Leave in DD.MM.YYYY format or select the date from the drop-down calendar.
- Tick the ‘I am taking full days off’, unless you're applying for a partial day.
- Click Next.
- Check that the Start and Finish times for each day are correct, or edit them as required.
- Click Submit to send the request to your leave approver.
You can also create a leave request in Leave > Leave Balances > New Request.
Partial Leave Days For Leave in Hours
If you are only taking a partial day of leave, make sure that the ‘I am taking full days off’ checkbox is not ticked in step 4 above. When you click Next, you will be prompted to enter the Start and Finish times manually so that the total number of leave hours can be calculated.
Request Leave in Day Units
Your leave accruals may calculate in days instead of hours, in which case there is a slightly different process to applying to take leave.
To request leave for a leave category which accrues in days (eg Annual Leave, Annual Leave in Advance), you can add the leave item to your timesheet and select the fraction of the day being taken from the accompanying dropdown list (eg ¼ day, ½ day, ¾ day, or 1 unit to request a full day of leave).
Important: If you’re applying for a leave type that is requested in days, you will need to add this to your timesheet, as the system does not currently support leave in days being submitted via a leave request.
