Wave goodbye paper and spreadsheets, and say hello to an automated work holiday planner

Managing staff holiday requests via paper and spreadsheets is long-winded, extremely tedious, and very limited. Manual processes and human error go hand in hand, therefore using a spreadsheet to track annual can confuse staff, with issues around the number of days used and how many they have left.

Using automated holiday booking software speeds up the process of recording and managing holidays, all whilst reducing the risk of human error and confusion amongst staff.

Frequently asked questions

What is a staff holiday planner?

A staff holiday planner is any system or piece of software that allows employees to book annual leave. Employees can book, track, and manage their holidays.

Can managers see their teams’ holiday?

Yes. Using our group calendar function managers can easily see exactly where anyone in their team is, whether it’s working from home, holiday or off-site training.

Can employee’s book holiday whenever they like?

Yes. Our online system can be accessed anywhere, anytime, and on any device. However, they can only take holiday if they have enough entitlement left. If someone has already used all their entitlement, the system will not allow them to take anymore.

Can we track more than just employee holidays?

Yes. Because the system is built around your requirements, you can track any form of planned, unplanned, or unauthorised absence. Some examples of these can be holiday, sickness, training, maternity, paternity, working from home, GP appointment, conference, and lateness.
