Holiday Planning

Holidays shouldn’t be a hassle

Give full visibility to all your staff, so everyone knows who's off and when.

1 Make a Request

Employees request time off through the website or mobile app. They'll be alerted if their request exceeds their allowance, or conflicts with colleagues.

2 Review the Details

Their manager is notified of the request. They can see if the dates would exceed their holiday allowance, or leave the department short-staffed.

3 Approve or Decline

The holiday is then approved or declined. If approved, their allowance is reduced, and the dates appear on the calendar for their colleagues.

Flexible Holiday Planning

Holiday planning that's
built around your business.

We built WorkSmarter's Holiday Planner to be flexible, adjusting to the way different businesses operate their holiday and staff leave policies.

Whether you track holiday by days or hours, roll-over unused time, or grant TOIL — WorkSmarter's system adapts to suit you.

Flexible Tracking — by Hours or Days

Easily set holiday allowances across multiple years, and pro-rate entitlements for new employees joining mid-way through the year.

Carry Over Unused Holiday Time

Roll over unused holiday automatically from one year to the next — or adjust these allowances by hand.

Time Off In Lieu

Optionally award extra time off instead of overtime pay, and manage these allowances separately for staff.
