To use the leave request features in your existing timr account, proceed as follows:
1. Enable leave request features
Go to the "Administration/Settings/General" in your timr account and enable absence requests. (Do not forget to save this setting!)
2. Determine working time types requiring a request
To enable leave requests features you have to set up the corresponding working time types accordingly.
For this go to "Administration/Working Time Types". There choose "Vacation" for example and click on the edit symbol. Now you can define that tracking for your employees is only possible "By request".
From this time on the leave request features will be available in your timr account.
You can find further info on requesting leave and approving requests in our help center section about Leave request & approval.
3. Enable absence calendar for your employees
You have the option of providing employees with an absence calendar so that they can see, for example, whether other colleagues are already on leave at the desired time when they request leave.
To do this, enable this option in the "Administration/Settings/Working time" menu in the "Absence calendar" section.
In the Enterprise Plan, an absence calendar for teams can also be activated.
For further details see our help center article about the Absence Calendar.
