FAQ How to edit a leave request?
If you made an error, or you would like to amend your request, you can only cancel it and request a new one. You can't delete requests from the past. You will have to ask your Administrator to cancel it for you. When I book an interval containing a weekend or a public holiday, is the vacation allowance reduced?
No, when you book a more extended vacation period, and in the interval, you have a bank holiday, a weekend, or both, they are disregarded, and only the working days count. Will the time off requested will be automatically added to my Outlook Calendar/Google Calendar?
Yes, please check our related page on integrating with Office 365 / Google Calendar. Can I book hours instead of days?
No. At this moment, the leave management system works with minimum increments of half days. Can I add attachments in the book time-off form?
The system doesn't support attachments (such as images or PDFs), directly. Yet, if you would like to add the doctors note, upload to a tool like Wetransfer or Dropbox, and add the link to the file in the comment box.
