Leave Requests can be made for Employees by accessing the ‘Leave Calendar’ within the left hand side menu of WorkForce Leave. Once on the page, select a day for the Leave Entry and you will be presented with the lightbox shown below.

Once filled in and submitted, you may proceed to approve the Leave for the employee by clicking on the calendar entry, unless there is an approver for the employee.
