Login to your WhosOff account

  • Click on the plus (+) icon in the top right hand corner of your screen (you can also tap Request Leave along the top of your Dashboard)
  • From the Quick Access menu click Submit Leave Request
  • Your Right Hand menu will then be presented to you (this is a theme throughout WhosOff whereby your Right Hand menu allows for managing a leave request) 
  • To carry out the submission, proceed as follows;
    • Who's the leave for? - Me
    • What type of leave do you want to book? - Holiday / Vacation
    • When should it start? - Select your Start Date
    • For how long? - There are a few duration options available to you:
      • All day - Book off the entire day
      • Just part of this day (half day) - Will allow you to book half of the day either AM or PM
      • A couple of hours - Book off a specific number of hours in 15 minute increments - only available for users with the Hours allowance type or on certain types of leave
      • For longer than a day - Allows you to specify a longer duration by selecting an End Date 
    • Any notes? - Allows you to submit a note entry for the leave request
  • Once you've entered your required leave request details, you can click on Check Details
