How Do I Set A Minimum Notice Period For Requests?

LeaveWizard allows you to set a minimum notice period for requests for any event type. This means that the Human Resources (HR) department can know in advance who is on leave during the selected period.

To set this up, go to the main menu, select Configuration and the Event types and Allowances option, which will take you to the Event types and Allowances page. Then set a minimum notice period by editing the event type. Highlight the event type by clicking its displayed name. Then either click the ‘Edit’ button on the submenu, or right click the event type name to get a pop-up menu and select the ‘Edit…’ option. In the Restrictions section, tick the ‘Must be requested in advance’ box. A text box will open below it to enter the minimum number of days of advance notice, e.g. For 7 days’ advance notice, enter ‘7’.

If an administrator tries to request a date less than the specified number of days in advance on behalf of the user, they will also get a warning message. However, they will get the option to override it. In this way, they can make these requests without having to lift the restriction.
