HotSchedules has two different features available for managing requests for days off. One is known as "Requests" and the other is "Time Off."
The difference between time off and requests is important to understand. When a request is submitted, there will be no notification sent to management. Management will decide whether to honor this request when working on the scheduler since this shift will be highlighted in orange.
On the other hand, when Unpaid Time Off is submitted, a notification will be sent to management who can decide on the spot whether to approve or deny the time off. If approved, the dates will be blocked off from being scheduled on the scheduler.
Which feature your company uses will vary. Please speak to an Admin with your company if you would like to change which features you use.
