By default, when a time off request is submitted by an employee, their manager will see the following notifications that a request has been submitted and requires approval.
- A notification in the Workflow section
- An entry in their calendar
The manager will also receive an email notification telling them that one of their employees has submitted a time off request.
By default, if the manager does not action the request i.e. Approve or Decline, they will receive two further reminders. The first reminder will be 3 days after the submitted date
And the second reminder will be 7 days after the time off request submitted date
The settings for these reminders can not be changed or modified, but can be set in a workflow as escalations which is why we allow turning off the default reminder option. To do this we go to:
Administration > Company > Settings > Company settings
Then select 'Disabled' from the Default timeoff approval reminders dropdown.
