The power of CakeHR is found in a very simple dashboard.
Right at the top, you can see all the pending requests you have for your time off. If you are planning a weekend break away, click on the green, "Request Time Off" button.
You can then select and request either a single day off (perhaps due to a doctors appointment at the other side of the city) or multiple days off if you are taking a weekend break away with a loved-one.
Your pending requests will then appear in the "Awaiting Request" box right at the top of the dashboard.
Your request has been sent to your manager for approval.
You will receive an email notification once the request has been accepted or declined.
