Team Lead Tasks: Monitor and Approve Absences

As a Team Lead you keep track of your team members current and upcoming absences.

When your team member wants to go on vacation, business trip, etc. and adds an absence to the calendar, you'll get a notification in the Chats.

Approve vacation and other absences

If the absence requires approval, you'll also receive an absence request that you are expected to process without much delay.

  1. Click Messenger Chats → Absences. Pending absence requests will be listed here.

  2. Click Approve — the requesting member will be automatically notified of your decision and a respective note will be added to the absence entry (only visible to you, the member, and authorized employees).

    If you have reasons not to approve the absence, please contact the member and discuss other options (i.e. rescheduling, cancelling).

View absences of your team members

  • To view your team members current and planned absences, navigate to your team page and choose the Calendar tab. Members' absences can be also found in their profiles along with the absence history.

  • The Team Lead can see the reason for the absence (vacation, sick leave, etc.), which is hidden from other team members by default.
