This is the final step in setting up your Time Off in bob. Import can also be used at any time to import requests for multiple people. For example if you want to pre-book the Christmas leave period for your team.

The easiest way to get started with Time Off is to import this years' requests only. If you want to import your requests as far back as you have records, include them on the import sheet too.

These steps can all be carried out with the pre-formatted spreadsheet. This sheet can be accessed by going to Time Off > Settings > Update Time Off Data > Update Requests > and the template will be available once you click on the button.


Once you're armed with a copy of the sheet, you're ready to import time off data to bob.

Navigate to Time Off > Settings to find the Update Time Off Data section.
