Time-Off Requests - Manager Permissions


How can I change what options Managers have access to when it comes to Time-Off Requests for their Employees?

All of the permissions can be set in the Time-Off Module by selecting Account Settings and the Time-off Request tab! 

Manager Cancellations

Allow Managers to cancel past time-off requests made by users they manage

Substitute Managers

Substitute managers will only receive an email notification for a new time-off request when all main managers are away on that particular day.
Managers are considered substitutes when the Emails check box is left unchecked in the Management tab, under the User Settings page for a user.

Managers To Submit Requests For Their Users

  • Only users they directly manager (default)
  • Users they manage, plus users in their hierarchy
  • Users they manage, users in their user department, plus users in their hierarchy
  • Users they manage, plus users in their user department
  • Users they manage, plus users in their office
  • Users they manage, plus users in their office and user department
  • All users in the account

Managers To Override Deductions

By default, Managers have the option to deduct hours or not when approving or submitting a time-off request for a user.  Turning this off will force them to deduct hours.

Managers To Override Emails

By default, Managers have the option to send or not send an email when actioning a request.  Turning this off will force them to send an email to the user. 

Managers To Override Negatives

When this option is on, a Manager can submit a time-off request on behalf of a user even if that user does not have enough time in their balance.

Managers To Override Time-Off or Time-Off Type Restrictions

When these options are on, a Manager can override the Time-Off and/or Time-Off Type Restrictions when creating requests on behalf of users
