Deputy is rolling out a new leave management system which is currently only available to select customers in the UK before being made available more widely later this year.
This article is intended for Deputy customers using the new leave management feature. If you are a Deputy Premium customer in the UK and not using the new system yet, please read Preparing to migrate to the new leave management experience.
This article will cover:
Adding leave for others
There are various reasons why a manager might need to enter leave on behalf of the employees:
Adding leave via employee profile
1. On the People page and click on the employee name you would like to add leave to.
3. Select the date for the leave to apply (all day or part of the day), select a leave type, add a comment and click on Request & approve to add and approve the leave in one step.
Adding leave via timesheets
It is also possible to add leave for employees when approving Timesheets. You may have to do this when the shift was not worked as scheduled in the instance that the employee went home sick or had some other misadventure.
You can create a new time sheet and manually add the required leave for the employee by selecting the leave type in Area of Work on the Timesheet.
