Creating Leave Requests

You can easily create and manage leaves of the employees using WP ERP. You can add documents as well. Let us see the steps.

Employee side

  1. Employees have to be logged in to take a leave. Go to the WP Admin Dashboard → HRM Overview page of the module and click on Take a Leave. Employees can also create leave requests from the frontend if you are using the HR Frontend extension for WP ERP.

2. The employee will now be taken to a modal window like the one shown below.
The employee will then be able to see the available number of leaves. He/She will also be able to choose the Type of Leaves and the Dates Range during which the employee will be unavailable. He can also explain his Reason further so that it remains documented.

You can add a document like the Doctor’s note etc with your application.
