With an automated tracking and documentation process, you’ll never forget or lose track of another employee time off or vacation request. A streamlined, paperless workflow takes the tedious “back and forth” out of the time-off request process. Here’s how:
You’ll have full visibility of all approved, pending, cancelled or denied requests. You can easily avoid any misunderstandings about when a request was made and where it went from there. You can also use the process to clarify how the time off will be applied – as Paid Time Off (PTO), Vacation/Sick time or unpaid. Employees can share their preferences but you choose how the time is applied.
Employees can check for themselves on the status of any time off or vacation request, whether it has been approved or denied, without having to bother you. If there’s a change of plans, they can just edit a pending request or mark it as cancelled. Plus, if you grant permissions to managers and supervisors, they can do the follow up work for their direct reports while you maintain visibility of what’s going on throughout the business.
Collecting the same information through the same process for all employees ensures consistency and fairness in sync with your time-off policy. Plus, if an employee ever questions how time off was handled, you’ll have consistent documentation to settle any disputes.
If you also use the Attendance Calendar Smart App, all approved absences and absence coding will automatically be transferred to the employee’s calendar keeping all your records in perfect sync.
