Allow Staff to Request Time Off

Modified on Thu, 27 Oct 2022 at 11:48 AM

In their Staff Dashboard, staff have an option to request time off from work. You can choose to switch this permission ON or OFF on an individual basis.

Staff must then wait for you to approve (or decline) their request for time off.


Tip: If you use a different system for staff time off and vacations, you may not want to use the optional feature of tracking time off requests within Pet Sitter Plus and the Staff Dashboard. You can therefore choose to "hide" this option from ALL staff.


Understanding Staff Permissions:

Staff Permissions allow you to fully customize the functionality available to particular staff roles within your business. Staff who are assigned work require the staff interface to complete their duties. Senior trusted staff may also require more access to certain scheduling or admin functions, particularly if they look after a team of sitters. In essence, Staff Permissions control which functions you give staff access to; the Interface Permissions control which modules staff can see.


Understanding Admin Permissions:

Admin Permissions allow you to fully customize the functionality and access available to particular admin roles within your business. Admins are usually key roles in the running of the business and need access to all or most areas of the software to do their job. Junior admin roles require a reduced set of functions and some areas would need to be restricted for this role. In essence, Admin Permissions control which functions you give staff access to; the Interface Permissions control which modules staff can see.
