The leave management feature is one of the most important features in any HR and Payroll Software, it allows the user / employee to login to a user friendly employee self-service portal, using this portal the employee is able to see his leaves balance not only that but also see his / her direct reports leave schedule, all on a beautiful calendar view to make things easier and familiar.
HR master allows you to apply for a leave simply drag the days you need on the calendar using your mouse, a simple pop up dialogue will show asking you to input some details, the number of days you dragged on the calendar will automatically calculate excluding any holidays or weekends!
After you fill the details and click Apply, an email notification will be sent to the user and his corresponding line manager, for simplicity: the line manager will receive a link in the email whereas he simply clicks to directly login to the approval page, when the line manager approves or disapproves the leave request, the requester will receive an email notification of the new status.
Any employee can login to the self-service portal to see a complete summary of leaves, the view shows all leaves, cancelled leaves, approved leaves, and rejected leaves.
An effective HR and Payroll Software allows the line manager to view team leaves in a tabular way, some managers have too many direct reports therefore it might be beneficial to list all team leaves inside a table.
As mentioned above email notifications are sent to notify both the requester and approving authority in cases of approvals, rejections and cancellations.
These emails can be customized according to customer requirements; it is important to note that these emails are sent only to the direct manager and not to any layer higher.
