Getting Started With LeaveWizard

All users of LeaveWizard are assigned a role, either Administrator, Manager or Employee when they are added to the system. This is done by a user with the role of Administrator in the user’s company. The role can be changed at a later date and depending on their role, they will have different access to web pages and functions on LeaveWizard.

As a manager, you will have basic access to the system to allow you to conveniently manage your own leave, make requests, check your holiday allowance(s) and see the approval status of your requests. You will also have additional privileges to check your team’s requests and allowances and be able to request leave and record absence for others. If request approval is required and you have been assigned as an approver for a user, you will also be asked to approve or reject requests made by them.

In addition to your role setting, what you can and cannot see and do is further controlled by your company administrator(s). It should be understood that LeaveWizard has no control over your company settings. Allowances, visibility and approver assignment are all set by your company.

To start using the system you need to have a username which is in the form of an email address, an email address and a password. The username and email address are assigned to you when the administrator adds you. Both may be the same but do not have to be. Only an administrator can change these and the username must be unique on the system.

Optionally, when adding you, they can choose to send you a system generated ‘Welcome’ email or they may notify you separately. Either way, you need to create a password for your user account. The Welcome email has a link in it and will guide you through the process.

You can sign in to the LeaveWizard app on our website by clicking the ‘Log in’ button on the main menu and then entering your username and password on the login page. If you didn’t get a ‘Welcome’ email you can use the ‘Forgot Password’ link on the page to create a password.

If you know your company uses LeaveWizard but they have not advised you of your username then please contact a LeaveWizard administrator or your Human Resources (HR) department. If you are unsure who to contact, we can advise you who your company administrators are.

Whenever you log into LeaveWizard you are taken to your Dashboard which is designed to provide quick and easy access to all the leave information you need for your company. At the top of the page is a menu to help you navigate around the LeaveWizard web app.
