Super users may give extra permissions to Approvers, giving the approvers more control over their staffs leave.

The three permissions available to the approver are;

  • No Extra Permissions - This is the standard permission for an approver, allowing him or her to approve their staffs leave
  • Add Staff Leave - This allows the approver to add leave (past, present or future) on behalf of a staff member*.
  • Add / Edit / Cancel Staff Leave - As above but with the extra availability to Edit* previously requested leave and also cancel any leave for a staff member.

*  The feature could allow the approver to give more leave than the staff members has remaining.
