How do I respond to an employee's leave request? (Mobile)

Modified on Wed, 29 Nov 2023 at 05:22 PM

If you have leave enabled on your account and you're the holiday approver for any employees you'll be responsible for choosing whether to approve or reject their leave requests. Depending on your notification settings you'll receive an email and a notification whenever an employee assigned to you requests leave.

If you have sufficient permissions you'll also be able to go to an employee's profile and respond to any leave requests, in case the holiday approver isn't available.

  1. If you've received an email regarding the leave request you should click on the link that it contains. If not, click on the 'More' button at the bottom of your screen when logged in to Shiftie and select 'Requests' from the list.
  2. Here you will see the leave request's basic details. Select the record and choose whether to approve or deny the request, or to view the full details before deciding.
  3. If you choose to view the request in more detail you can also click the 'Leave around these dates - View' button to see if any other employees have time booked around the same time.
  4. Once you've made a decision click either the 'Deny Request' or 'Approve Request' button as appropriate.
  5. You'll be given the option to write an explanation for your decision, and then to confirm; your decision and the reason for it will be emailed to the employee. No pressure!
