Step-by-Step Guide to Requesting Time Off

2) Selecting Dates and Category

  • In the time-off request calendar, choose the date range for your request.

  • Select the appropriate time-off category.

3) Adding Additional Information

  • You can add a note and upload one or more attachments if needed to provide additional relevant information about the time-off request.

4) Submitting the Request

  • Ensure all details are correct and select "Request X days" in the bottom right corner.

  • After requesting time off, the colors of the booked time off in your calendar will correspond to the color chosen to represent the time-off category in the Time off settings.

Tip: If you're unsure about which time-off category to choose, refer to the time-off category description ℹ️.
