Tip Tuesday – Canceling Time Off

Tip Tuesday – Canceling Time Off

Welcome back to Tip Tuesday! This week we will be talking about the tips and tricks to canceling your requested time off. There are certain settings an administrator or manager can set up in order to allow their employees to cancel time off. First of all, make sure that in the general options you have “use time off” selected. This will allow you to request time off to begin with. However, in order to allow employees the feature to cancel time off, you will need to edit each employee’s user record. There will be a setting under each user record in the Time Off section called “Allow employee to request cancellation of time off”. Once you select this option employees will be allowed to cancel their time off requests.

In order to go in and cancel time off, make sure to sign in on the employee side of your account if you are a manager or admin. Then under time off, there will be a link to “cancel time off”. The next screen should look something like the one shown below:

As long as you have a time off request that has not been accepted by a manager, it will appear in the red section to allow you to click the red ‘x’ and cancel the request. Upon clicking the red ‘x’ it will ask you to confirm your action, then it will remove this time off request from your requests. Underneath this red section, you will see a summary of your time of accounts. In the image above, you will see the Time Off Account for 2014 and 2015. This employee did not request off in the 2014 account so that is blank. As you can see in the 2015 Account, if the requested time off has not occurred yet, you can still submit a request to cancel it even if it has been approved.
