Department features

For each department, you have to option to specify the maximum number of allowed absentees, designate a user as the department manager and set the default holiday contingent for users within this department.

Additionally, you can structure the approval process and specify in which order the approvers should receive the leave request, should you have multiple approvers in that department.

Please note that having more than one approver is only available with this add-on.

Benefits of additional departments

By adding this feature, you can subdivide your users into the respective departments in which they already work. You'll get a much clearer glimpse from the overview page because you can filter accordingly.

This feature is also helpful if you need to determine a maximum absence limit per department, or if another user from the same department needs to take over approval of leave if the designated approver is away.

Not only that, but you'll also have control over the privacy settings between departments, where you can decide whether or not absences are visible across departments - perfect for companies looking to maintain confidentiality.
