To apply for holidays, sick leave or business trips go to «Create Request». The user can create request only in his name.
To speed up that process use the templates (See. «Application template») or fill out the request manually.
As soon as the request is created, it automatically sends to department manager for approval. The manager receives a notification about new request.
The manager can submit his decision by email respond or using web interface. After approval/rejection of the request workflow sends automatic notification to employees and updating vacation schedules.
