Approve / Deny Time Off Requests

Employees who have the permission to do so will have the ability to Approve / Deny time off requests submitted by employees.

When a new time off request is submitted by an employee, you will receive a notification by an app alert and email notification. Once you log in to your CrewSense account, you will notice a growl notification beneath the bell atop your screen. This alerts you to the pending request. Clicking the bell will show you all alerts needing your attention.



You may also see a notification badge on the Time Off module icon. 




Once you click the item needing action, a table will open and you will have the option of approving or denying the request, modifying the start/end dates and times and entering a note to the employee. Once you take action, the employee will receive a notification. An approved time off request will automatically be placed on both the Crew Scheduler and the Time Off Calendar.



By default, users cannot delete their time off requests from the system without administrator approval or the permissions enabled to do so. To override this, you will need to enable the setting "Let users delete their own approved time-offs", found in System Settings > Time Off > Miscellaneous.



If enabled, you can also restrict time off that can be deleted, to only time off starting in the future.
