If a user wants to learn about the number of available vacation days or submit a vacation request, there’s a ‘Leave Request’ tab for that. In addition to automatically calculated vacation days available, the system also displays information about previous vacations, sick leaves, own expense leaves, etc.
There’s a ‘New Request’ form for the submission of different types of vacation requests. These could be:
- Sick leave
- Own expense leave
- Military leave
The user sets the start date and end date of the required type of vacation leave, and the system automatically calculates the number of the requested days. After, it is possible to leave a comment for approvers who will receive the request via email, and tap the ‘Submit’ button. As the system is integrated with Jira, it defines the list of approvers based on the leads of the projects the user is assigned to.
When the request is submitted, it automatically gets to the field with previously approved vacations and leaves, but under a status ‘Pending Approval’. After managers approve the request and all the documents required are prepared, the request changes its status to ‘Approved and Registered’. The user is notified about the approval via email.
In addition to the address book and vacation requests, the system also allows the user to see their own business card (with a profile photo) that contains information about the department, building, and room they work in, as well as contact details (phone, Skype, and email).
