If you need to request leave which crosses multiple months then you can do this using this date picker.
Adjusting your leave dates
On the right side of the form, you will see the dates you are requesting listed. This allows you to fine-tune the request, for example, to change a full day to a half day or adjust the number of hours.
To modify a particular day, click on the blue dropdown and select one of the following options:
- All day
- Half day - Morning
- Half day - Afternoon
The 'Other' option allows you to specify the amount and start time of your request.
Not all these options are shown if the employee only works part-time, has some leave already booked or is requesting over a non-working day.
Employees with hourly allowances will always need to enter the number of hours they are requesting.
To modify the start time you can simply click in the box and select the time from the clock picker.
The end time of a request is automatically calculated based on the amount being requested, the start time and any lunch periods which have been set up by your administrator.
