  3. The ability to change your absence markings without cancelling them

    I would like to see an option to change your absence markings without cancelling them. I.e. when you try to change (shift) your vacation, you have to cancel the whole thing and start over.

  6. Reason next to absence type in outlook event

    When adding an absence outlook automatically creates an event in the outlook calendar with the title set as the absence type. It would be useful to have the option for the title in outlook event to also include any text entered in the reason for absence box udring the creation of the absence. For example. We have "site Visit" as a type of absence which appears in outlook as an event. When entering this in absentify we place the location or site location in the reason for absence box. It would be more useful if when this were added to outlook as an event by the absentify system if it appeared as "Site Visit: Oxford" assuming Oxford had been inputted as the reason for absence. Perhaps for users who do not wish this to be the case there could be a toggle button or an additional field in the absentify entry to allow for this to occur.

  7. Option to block outlook diary for public holidays

    Option to block outlook diary for public holidays - Everyone will be by default OOO on these days, so blocking calendar prevents unwanted appointment/meeting bookings through other apps. Thanks!

  8. Add Noticeboard where organisation leave rules can be posted as static content.

    A noticeboard where the rules per leave type can be loaded as static content would assist new and casual employees on what kind of absences they can take and the rules for each one. For example. if one is calling in sick - the noticeboard can have something that says notify your line manager by 9am or if one is booking sick leave for more than two days, they would know they need to bring a doctor's letter on return to duties. It can be just an additional tab on the app and the main administrator has access to update the tab.

  9. More than one approver

    Currently, only one approver can be defined for a request. In the future it will be possible to define one or more approvers. The sequence can also be defined. And whether it is sufficient if one of the approvers approves or if all of them have to approve. The applicant can see exactly where his application currently stands.

  14. Email reminders to approve holiday

    When a manager misses the first request to approve holiday, a follow up email would be useful after a day or two as a reminder.

  15. Cancellation of individual days

    It should be possible to cancel individual days of vacation (instead of just the whole vacation). This should also be possible for managers and admins for past holidays. One implementation idea would be to be able to choose between the entire vacation and individual days when canceling vacation, and then select these specifically.
