Leave can then be applied for within an employee's secure login to the cloud-based leave management system. On their dashboard, employees will see an overview of all leave types allocated to them and the remaining number of leave days they have for each leave type. Employees simply select the leave type they want to apply for, and the days, or hours of leave, and submit to their pre-set approver. Employees can choose to add colleagues in ‘cc’ in their leave application so that they are also notified of the leave dates once an approval has been given.
The free Swingvy mobile HR app also simplifies leave applications. In one tap from the mobile home screen, all leave type balances can be viewed and managed, along with leave request and approval history. Applications for new leave can be made within the app, triggering the same notifications to the leave approvers to streamline the application process and timeline. Employees will be notified via push notifications as well as in their in-app inbox about the status update of any applications.
