Features and functionality
Obviously, this is an important one. As a piece of software with a particular function, it must do the job - and do it well.
Features-wise, both Leave Dates and Timetastic offer a comprehensive suite of functionalities – leave tracking, calendar management, request and approval workflows, employee scheduling, pro-rata calculations, integrations with Outlook, Google Calendar and Slack, and mobile apps on iOS and Android.
Everything you need to manage staff holidays is there – so far, so good.
Leave Dates also offers extra features such as requesting and approving TOIL, advanced leave and absence reporting, and the option to handle multiple allowances and multiple approvers.
