This program has been a game changer.

I did have a few questions on first setting up and received positive support and responses within 1 hour of asking the question. There was also super follow-up afterwards to determine if I was happy with the solution. We’ve been struggling for years to have a program that works for management and staff and this one appears to be it. So easy to set up and work with. I unreservedly recommend Leave Dates for a company of our size (only 25 people, but in two different countries). So easy to customise and I’m sure that updates will continue to come in.

Very positive experience.

The impact it has had on my workforce has allowed them to control their own annual leave and absences, giving them a sense of empowerment

This was a new system for me after working with many systems similar in the past and I can honestly say it has been seamless. From requesting leave to monitoring staff leave it is incredibly user friendly.

A great tool to help me manage the office

Leave Dates has allowed me to better manage my planning for my fieldwork engagements. Also, it helps me schedule in-house office mandates as it permits me to see who is available to take on more work. I would highly recommend this website! 

I like the table aspect that allows me to see which of my colleagues are in the office and who is not in the office, and what is the reason for their absence.

Elyse L CPA Manager

A great product, and can monitor different types of absence.

It is easy to add different types of absence and approvers/depts. Bank holidays are added as well as weekends and Leave Dates works out the holidays when they start part way though the year.
