Applying for leave


On the website, please click on your profile found in the top right corner of your screen. From there, please scroll down to "Leave", then click "Add New".

This will allow you to take part of a day off.

To submit unavailability

To Mark Availability follow the below instructions:

  1. Same as leave request, you can submit unavailability via web browser, smartphone and Kiosk. Clicking on "Unavailability" will result in a box being shown where you can add details of the days you are unable to work. You select the day from the calendar then check whether you want this day to be recurring every week or not. There is also a choice for if the shift is all day and if not then you select the time range. 
  2. After submission, you should be able to see your unavailability summary in the preview. NOTE: Marking yourself as unavailable will not mean that you are exempt from being rostered on these days but tells your employer that you have marked yourself unavailable so they can select available people first. Thus is also why unavailability doesn't require manager's approval for submission.
