Leave Management

With LeaveBoard, the tedious task of managing absences and time-off will vanish. We offer accessible software for both managers and employees.

You can create a separate calendar for every team, so they can all know who is off, when and for how long. Useful, right?

Online time off requests

We aim to make managers’ lives easier, by allowing them to approve or decline a time-off request with only a few clicks.

  • Paid Time Off
  • Vacation
  • Sick leave
  • Work from Home
  • Time in Lieu
  • Any other type of absence
Individual HR Dashboards

Every employee will hold an individual HR Dashboard, which will allow him to check the time-off balance.

Easily amend leave allocations

Configure flexible working patterns and allocate different leave balances to each team member.

Time off manager

Handle accruals, carry-overs, sick leave time and all other confusing time off calculations with ease.

Who’s Off Calendar

Staffing problems disappear just by taking a glance since you will know who is in the office, who is off and for how long. This is leave tracking at its best!

Overlaps warning

Since time-off is a benefit offered to employees, they should show gratitude in response. How? Very easy. LeaveBoard provides them with great service: a warning every time they are about to book a day off and another colleague or more than one is also away from work. Staffing issues will decrease a lot for you, as a manager or a business owner.

PTO and Leave Trackers

You don’t have to worry any more than mistakes will appear regarding attendance and absences. LeaveBoard is here to help you track the time off every employee takes. Forget about emails asking for permission in regards to vacation, since each request your staff submits, is automatically registered in the database and digitally routed to the supervisor for approval.

Simple approval flow

LeaveBoard does not stop here: we offer you many more useful features. As manager, you can accept or decline leave requests. Revolutionize your time-off management with our simple approval flow and forget about paper sheets!

Instant email notifications

At each step in the request process, emails are triggered and task inboxes updated, so that both employees and managers are kept informed.

Dynamic entitlement calculator

Time off policies may feel like a burden. But we are determined to erase this perception. You only need to establish the rules and our system will go on from there. It will calculate automatically how many days off is each employee entitled to, based on their working hours, on your company internal rules or local (regional) calendars.

Smart integrations

As you already know, integrations are something we like, so you can integrate with Google, Microsoft, Slack, etc.

Employee Self-Service

Are you still thinking about whether you need a cloud technology like LeaveBoard? The answer can’t be anything else than YES.

Employee Portal

We all need structure and discipline in our lives. LeaveBoards grants this to both managers and employees. Employees will benefit from a comprehensive dashboard that will include all sensitive and personal data and of course, a balance of their time off. Managers will see, depending on their level of access, all there is to know regarding attendance, team calendars, time off policies, time-off tracking, reporting, etc.

Employee/Manager Dashboards

Your employees will love to manage their time-off and they will feel more appreciated and engaged if given this opportunity.

If you choose to automate your HR management, both managers and employees will be grateful.

Automatic updates

LeaveBoard won’t let you fall behind: you benefit from automatic updates, every time a new leave is introduced in the system. So your calendar is always up to date. This is also extremely helpful for reporting and keeping all personal data up to speed.

Staff Leave Planner

Your employees will also be thrilled: their leave planner is the source for questions as how much time off do I have left? Did I use all my sick days? Which days should I take my vacation?

Vacation calendar
