As a manager, allocating time off to an employee is a very simple process.
1. Go to:
Time and Attendance > Timeoff
2. Select 'Add' below the timeoff list
3. Select the employee's name from the drop-down list
4. Expand the relevant time off type, input the time off details and select submit - as you would a normal time off request.
A green banner will then confirm a successful submission and the time off will be allocated to the employee.
Note: Adding time off using this method will not require approval in the same way that a request would unless you are using a custom workflow with the "Workflow applies to manager/approver actions?" set to "Manager adding on behalf of employee" or "Both", this will be added immediately to the employee file.
