Web application for managing employee absences.
Multiple views of staff absences
Calendar view, Team view, or Just plain list.
Tune application to fit into your company policy
Add custom absence types: Sickness, Maternity, Working from home, Birthday etc. Define if each uses vacation allowance.
Optionally limit the amount of days employees can take for each Leave type. E.g. no more than 10 Sick days per year.
Setup public holidays as well as company specific days off.
Group employees by departments: bring your organisational structure, set the supervisor for every department.
Customisable working schedule for company and individuals.
Third Party Calendar Integration
Broadcast employee whereabouts into external calendar providers: MS Outlook, Google Calendar, and iCal.
Create calendar feeds for individuals, departments or entire company.
Three Steps Workflow
Employee requests time off or revokes existing one.
Supervisor gets email notification and decides about upcoming employee absence.
Absence is accounted. Peers are informed via team view or calendar feeds.
There are following types of users: employees, supervisors, and administrators.
Optional LDAP authentication: configure application to use your LDAP server for user authentication.
Ability to extract leave data into CSV
Ability to back up entire company leave data into CSV file. So it could be used in any spreadsheet applications.
Works on mobile phones
The most used customer paths are mobile friendly:
employee is able to request new leave from mobile device
supervisor is able to record decision from the mobile as well.
Lots of other little things that would make life easier
Manually adjust employee allowances e.g. employee has extra day in lieu.
Upon creation employee receives pro-rated vacation allowance, depending on start date.
Email notification to all involved parties.
Optionally allow employees to see the time off information of entire company regardless of department structure.
Create company account and use cloud based version.
