How do I book leave? (Desktop)

Modified on Fri, 22 Dec, 2023 at 2:26 PM

Whether you're jetting off on holiday or booking a doctors appointment it's a good idea to tell your boss before they schedule you for a shift that starts right in the middle of your time off.

If you don't really qualify for leave but you won't be able to work you might want to update your availability instead.

  1. Head over to the schedule page by clicking on the 'Schedule' calendar icon on the left of your screen.
  2. Click the 'Add Time Off' button in the top right of the screen and select 'Request Leave'.
  3. In the resulting form, fill out the date on which your leave will start, and choose whether you want a full or half day's leave.
    1. If you select 'Full Day' you will then have to choose the leave end date. If you're only taking one day off then the end date should be the same as the start date.
    2. If you select 'Half Day' you will have to choose whether the half-day is the morning or the afternoon. 
  4. Next, choose the type of leave which you'll be taking.
  5. If you want to add a note against the leave you can enter this in the 'Message' field.
  6. Once you're happy with the request click to confirm at the bottom of the form. The leave request will be emailed to your leave approver for review and once they've responded you'll get an email to confirm it.
