Leave time slots are specific leave periods which you may set up for your employees to select when booking leave on Talexio.
To set up time slots, you will need the Manage Leave Types permission (this must be set on global). To book leave, you will need the Request Leave permission (set on whoever you can book leave for - so, if you should book leave for yourself, it would be set on self).
