ProjectTRACKER can be used also for basic holiday planning. This is includes also a calendar for site / country specific holidays. The absence page looks like:
Based on your “Site” access rights you can see also other users absence times / holidays or public holidays of your location country or other country locations you are allowed to access.
To add your holiday / absence time simply click on the respective date in the calendar. Your short name shows up and indicates the request for a holiday / absence. Your responsible team manager can approve your holiday. As soon your holiday is approved your short name is marked with '*' and you cannot delete it anymore by clicking again on the date.
The team leader can define the type of absence. Team leaders and the user himself can see the type of absence via the color of the short name:
|Type of absence||Color|
|Non-holiday absence, e.g. overtime compensation||Blue|
