The My Settings page is a menu option on the user menu which is accessed via the ‘Head’ icon on the far right hand side of the main menu and allows some user specific preferences to be changed.
There are no options on the sub menu for Managers.
The My Settings page is divided into 3 sections Preferences, Change Password and Outlook/Google Calendar Integration.
The preferences section has 1 drop down to set your preferred culture and 3 tick boxes if your company allows you to select if you want email notification from LeaveWizard. If you are not receiving emails from us then these boxes should be ticked.
Receive Email Notifications
When displayed, this tick box allows you to select if you want to receive system emails, such as when your leave request is approved, to your registered email address. Messages will always go to your LeaveWizard Inbox but you can choose if emails should also be received as well.
Send Email On Leave Request
When displayed, this tick box will be greyed out unless you have Receive Email Notifications ticked. It allows you to select if you also want to send an email to your registered email address when you request leave.
Send Email On Overtime Request
When displayed, this tick box will be greyed out unless you have Receive Email Notifications ticked. It allows you to select if you also want to send an email to your registered email address when you request overtime.
This setting allows you to select a preferred culture from a drop down box of countries and will change the way some items, like dates are displayed on the system.
Change Password Section
The Change Password Section has 3 fields Old Password, New Password and Confirm Password. All fields are mandatory as indicated by the read star next to each field. Enter your password information and then click the Change My Password button to update your password.
Outlook / Google Calendar Integration Section
This section will have 1 or 2 links which you can click to synchronise your leave calendar with an external calendar such as Outlook or Google. Depending on how your administrator has set up your LeaveWizard system you will be able to subscribe to your personal leave or optionally subscribe to all visible leave which includes leave for other users. For more information about external calendars please see our help article.
The LeaveWizard administrator can select which events types are published to the external calendar and they are listed here. In this case Holiday, Maternity Leave, Paternity Leave, Public Holiday and Sickness are published and any other event types would not be shown on the external calendar.
