Submitting a Time-Off Request


Looking to take a day off or simply track a time-off type in the calendar? 

It's really simple, a full day, a partial day or even a multi-day request can be created and submitted in your Time-Off Module!

Will the system allow me to request the same day twice?

Unfortunately, by default, the system will not allow users to submit duplicate requests for the same day. With that said it is possible to request two separate partial day requests that do not overlap with one and the other. 
Always keep in mind that multiple factors could give you an error message when requesting time off.
If you do receive any kind of error message that does not allow you to submit/confirm your request you have to reach out to your manager or the Administrator on the account, they should be able to assist you further. 

Here's how to submit a single day request:  

  1. Select the Time-Off Module
  2. Time-Off Request on the left side panel
  3. Click "Full Day"
  4. Select Time-Off Type
  5. Select Date
  6. Submit & Confirm (Don't forget to add a note if required)

Here's how to submit a partial day request:

  1. Select the Time-Off Module 
  2. Time-Off Request 
  3. Click "Partial Day"
  4. Select Time-Off Type
  5. Select Date
  6. Select Start and End Time (or Time Area)
  7. Submit & Confirm (Don't forget to add a note if required)
This option may not be enabled within your account

Here's how to submit a multiple days request:  

  1. Select the Time-Off Module
  2. Time-Off Request
  3. Click "Multiple Days"
  4. Select Time-Off Type
  5. Select Start & End Date
  6. Submit & Confirm (Don't forget to add a note if required)
Managers and Administrators have the ability to submit Time-Off Requests on behalf of Employees/Users by selecting the user and following the same steps.
Depending on Account Options, the option to deduct time, or not deduct time may be available.
If uploading a file with a request, the following types are accepted: PNG, JPG, EML, MSG
It is not possible to submit recurring days off into PurelyHR.
