How do I prevent employees from requesting more Absence than their entitlement allows?

This is easily achieved by turning off the ‘Request More Than Allowed’ setting in Self Service Profiles.

  1. Select ‘System’ from the Menu Bar.
  2. Select ‘Self Service Profiles’ from the System Tree.
  3. Select the required Self Service Profile.
  4. Select the ‘General’ tab.
  5. In the ‘Requests’ section, ensure that ‘Request More Than Allowed’ is unticked.
  6. Save.

When an employee now requests an Absence that exceeds their entitlement, the request will be declined. A message explaining that they have ‘requested more than available’ appears, giving them a breakdown of their entitlement and explaining what their options are.
