Connecteam's Time Off feature allows you to manage all things related to your employees' leave whether it be holiday, sick leave, or any other time off policy you offer. Sometimes however plans change or employees make mistakes. Rather than declining the time off and having the employee resubmit it, admins can edit the time off request. Even if the time off was already approved or rejected it can still be edited by the admin.

In this article, we will go over how to edit time off if it has already been submitted and when it's being approved by admin.

How to Edit Time Off While Approving the Time Off Request

If you have activated admin approval, then your admin will need to approve any time off requests when they are submitted. If the request needs to be edited this can be done by clicking on the edit icon next to the request itself.

Then you can edit everything related to the submitted time off such as dates or policy time. Just be sure to clock on save and approve when you're finished.

Let's look at an example of when this option could be useful: An employee called for sick leave, but when submitting the time off accidentally chose the wrong policy. In this case, when the admin approves the time off request they can edit the time off (as seen above) and change the policy.

How to Edit an Already Approved or Rejected Time Off Request

If the time off has already been submitted or approved by an admin then you will need to access the approved time off to edit it.

  1. Access the Time off feature on the left sidebar.

  2. Under approved Time Off find the relevant employee and clock on view all.

  3. A sidebar will pop out on the right where you can see everything related to the employee's time off.

  4. Find the relevant time off and click on edit. Now you can edit everything related to the submitted time off such as dates or policy time

💡Tip: Have trouble locating the specific time off that needs editing? Within the sidebar, you can filter for approved, rejected, and waiting for approval.

Let's look at an example of when this option could be useful: An employee requested a Holiday from June 13th to June 20th. The admin approved it. Then the employee asked to change the dates from June 15th to June 22nd. In this case, the admin can access the approved time off (as seen above) and change the dates on behalf of the employee.
