Step 3: Request Time Off


Use Time Off to request vacation time or days that you need off. First, go to Manage > Time Off in the top menu. (Mobile app: Go to Time Off in the side menu.)

Then click the green +Add button and select the dates you are requesting off. Your Manager may require you to leave a comment to explain why you need this time away from work. 

Once you submit your Time Off request, it is sent to your Manager for approval. Depending on your notification settings, you'll be notified by email and/or text/push notification once your Manager approves or declines your request. Until then, your request is marked as pending. 

If you want to delete a Time Off request you submitted, click on the 'x' button beside the date. Your manager will be notified that you no longer need those days off.

Mobile app: When viewing Time Off, go to the entry you want to delete and tap on the three dots at the top right to select 'delete'.
