As a system administrator (Admin), you have enhanced functionality on the Time Off section in bob. You'll be able to create reports, request time off on an employee’s behalf, cancel and approve requests, and change an employee’s holiday policy.
Approving Time Off & Company Calendar
As an Admin, you have access to all the time off requests made across your organisation. In order to access them, head over to Time Off > Requests.
As a Manager or Admin, you can see up to two groups of pending requests:
- Pending for your approval - these are the requests awaiting your approval made by your direct reports.
- Pending for others approval - these are requests you have access to as an Admin, but are awaiting approval by other managers.
Each request is minimized by default, showing basic information about the request along with quick approve and reject buttons.
Clicking the arrow at the left hand side of each request block expands the view so you can view more insights about the request, including the employee’s current balance and who else from your team is out of office on those days.
Time Off Calendar
At the bottom of the Requests page you'll see your entire company's Time Off calendar. Here you gain full oversight about the timing and policies for which your employees are booking time off. You can filter the view the calendar by site, team, direct/indirect reports.
People's Time Off
Clicking along to the next tab labelled People's Time Off takes you to a table view for all of your employees. From this section of the platform, you'll be able to download existing time off data.
If you need to quickly assign or remove policies, adjust days taken or view remaining balance, you can do so via the Actions button.
In the example below you can see filtering by the departments Accounting, Admin, Audit and assigned them all to a holiday policy.
