Company settings

The Company tab is practically the control panel of your HR system. From this section, you can configure the following areas of your account:

  1. Subscription
  2. Leave types
  3. Integrations
  4. General company settings
  5. Permissions
  6. Notifications

Note: This section is limited to company administrators.

1. Subscription

Regarding the Subscription, LeaveBoard is simple for all:

  • Free for companies with a maximum of 9 employees. Companies with up to 9 employees do not have the option to pay online, because these accounts are free. Once you add 10 employees to your account, you will automatically switch to the Pro version, and you will have the option to pay online.
  • Pro. Just $1.35 per month for larger companies. For yearly payment, there is a two-month discount (~17% compared to month-by-month pay). The subscriptions are recurring.

Braintree by Paypal powers the secure payment technology.

Once the payment has been made, your invoice will be automatically added to the Subscription tab.

Note: LeaveBoard accepts only Mastercard and Visa cards.

2. Leave types

In this area, you can customize the existing leave policies, and add new types of time-off.

3. Integrations

If you want to use the vacation tracker Slackbot from LeaveBoard, you need to activate this integration. You can also import your employee details from Slack from this page.

4. Settings

  • Billing details and contact person
  • Name format (John Doe, or Doe John)
  • The business year start date
  • If your business has subsidiaries
  • Default working days and hours inside the company.

Note: By activating the subsidiaries option, within the employee database and the HR reports you will have the opportunity to filter also for the needed subsidiary.

5. Permissions

Customize the visibility and restrict the level of access for managers and employees using the permission settings.

6. Notifications

If you want to trigger additional email alerts for various employee leave requests, configure your notifications.


How can I change the working days, or the working hours at company level?

By default, our system works on a five-day working schedule Monday-Friday or Saturday-Thursday from 9 AM to 5 PM, meaning eight working hours per day, 40h per week. If you want to change the working schedule, go to Company > Settings > Working schedule > Modify as you wish > Save. When you invite the next employee, it will have the settings configured. For existing employees, you need to modify their settings one by one.
Note: we recommend making such changes when you setup your account. If you have already invited employees to your account, you need to make these changes from their employee profile.

What do you do regarding inactive company accounts?

We've automated our account recycling policy. Since there is no reason to hold personal data from inactive LeavBoard accounts, and to maintain security, limit data retention, and protect the privacy of our users, inactive accounts are generally deleted after 6 months of inactivity. Inactivity means the user hasn’t logged, added any leave requests, during that time.

How can I change the company name?

If you made an error with your company's name when registering, or the company name has changed, send us an email with the new name of your business, and we will update it.
