Step 3: Request time off

First, it's important to understand the difference between submitting Availability and Time Off.

Availability:  Use availability to communicate to your manager which days of the week and times of the day, you prefer not to work due to school, other jobs, or other commitments.

Time Off:  Use time off to request vacation time or ask your manager for days you need to take off.


Now, here's how to submit your time off:

1. Go to Time Off in the side menu.

 

2. Tap ‘ADD’ to start adding your new time off request.

 

3. Specify whether you need full day(s) or a partial day off.  Select the dates you need time off and add comments.

Once you are done, tap 'Save' and your manager will be notified of your time off request.

 Note: Depending on your notification settings, you'll be notified by email and/or text message once your manager approves or declines your request. Until then, your request is marked as pending.


How to delete a time off request: Tap on the time off request to view the details. Then tap the three dots icon in the top right of the screen and click 'Delete'. Your manager will be notified that you no longer need those days off.
