Overview

Leave types are the specific settings and permissions relating to the different types of leave applicable to your company (such as Vacation, sick, parental, study leave, injury leave, etc..). Each leave type has its own granular permissions. For a detailed explanation on how to manage and add Leave Types, click here

Permissions

To set up and manage Leave Types, you will require the Manage Leave Types permission. To amend the Leave Type permissions, you will also need the Manage Permissions permission. Both need to be set to global.
You will also need View or Manage All Employee Data to give/revoke leave permissions to specific employees.
The ability to request any type of leave is dependent on the Request Leave permission.
The ability to approve any type of requested leave is dependent on the Approve Leave permission.

Additional Leave Type Permissions

Talexio allows these permissions to be used in a granular way so that even when the setting Allow users to request is on, this can be restricted to certain employees for each leave type. 

To view or manage each leave type's permissions:

  1. Click on the More menu next to the leave type you want to change the permissions for.
  2. Click on Manage Permissions.

  3. Here you can choose who will be able to Request/Approve for this Leave Type, even if they have the Request Leave and/or Approve Leave permissions

By default, if an employee has Request Leave permission and Allow Users to request is switched on, the employee will have a blue box with a dash. This means the employee can request this leave type.
By default, if an employee has Approve Leave permission, the employee will have a blue box with a dash. This means the employee can approve this leave type.

 

What is the difference between a tick box and a dash?

If you want to grant this permission specifically to an employee(s), simply click on the dash and it will turn into a tick. You will need to click on the box of each employee for whom you want to give specific leave request permission for a leave type.

The below table explains what the different checkbox states mean.

Empty Checkbox Empty Checkbox.jpg Employee cannot Request/Approve this leave type even if they have the Request/Approve Leave permission.
Blue Checkbox with Dash Blue Checkbox with Dash.jpg Employee has the Request/Approve Leave permission and they can Request/Approve this leave type since it has been selected for all employees.
Grey Checkbox with Dash Grey Checkbox with Dash.jpg Employee does not have the Request/Approve Leave permission so they cannot Request/Approve this leave type despite it being selected for all employees.
Blue Checkbox with Checkmark Blue Checkbox with Checkmark.jpg Employee has the Request/Approve Leave permission and they can Request/Approve this leave type since it has been selected for this employee specifically.
