The Mobile App For Administrators

As part of LeaveWizard, we provide an app for iOS and Android smart phones and devices. The mobile app allows administrators to make leave requests and get essential information.

Get The App

You can download the app from Google Play Store for Android or the App Store for iOS devices. The apps are free to download. During installation, please allow notifications so that you benefit from full app functionality. The mobile app is the same for all LeaveWizard users, but administrators, managers and employees will get access to different functions.

The ‘Login’ Page

Login To The App

If you are an employee of a company that already subscribes to LeaveWizard, then use your regular username and password to sign in.

However, if you have not received a welcome email or a username from your company, then please contact your human resources team.

If they have given you a username but you have not already set up a password on the web app, then you can do it on the mobile app using the ‘Forgot password?’ link.

Options

You can enable the ‘Remember Me’ slider to allow biometric authentication. If you close the app and don’t log out, you can then use your fingerprint to sign in next time without having to enter your username and password.

New Trial Company

If you are not an employee of an existing company that subscribes to LeaveWizard, you can set up a new trial company. You can do that using the ‘Register a new company account’ link.

App Overview

The app has three main pages, ‘My Leave’, ‘My Team’ and ‘Calendar’. Above these pages is an information header and below a navigation footer.

Information Header

The header displays your name on the left hand-side and three icons on the right hand-side.

Events Pane

The ‘Events’ pane displays your remaining allowance for each event type for the current leave year. You can swipe left or right to navigate the list.

Leave Requests Pane

The ‘Leave Requests’ pane lists all your requests for a leave year. It orders them by status (Approved – Pending – Expired) and also chronologically. Clicking on a request will provide more information about it.

You can swipe up or down to navigate the list and there is a drop-down box to select which leave year at the top.

If you want to create a new leave request, click the large circular ‘+’ icon in the bottom right-hand corner and a request form will appear.

It orders them by status (Pending – Approved – Expired) and also chronologically. Each request has its status highlighted by a colour coded label in the top right-hand corner. It marks ‘Expired’ requests as ‘Past’.

Depending on your company and personal settings on the web app, it will also mark Public holidays. Similarly, visibility of events will also follow the same settings and restrictions as the web app.
