DevCore Leave Calendar lets you easily handle all sorts of leave requests by offering a highly customizable yet easy to use calendar view with settings for controlling request approval and overall appearance.
The add-in is essentially a SharePoint calendar list for holding leave requests. The requests are displayed in a custom calendar view that will display requests in different color depending on leave type. The calendar is also filterable by each leave type and your company departments making it easier to navigate and find what's important among all requests.
Requests that require approval will send an email to your manager with a link to approve the request. When the request is approved or rejected an email is sent to the requestee.
Customize for your needs
Leave types can be added, modified or removed and also has settings for color and whether or not approval is required. For instance, by default a vacation request requires approval while a sick leave will auto-approve. There is no restriction on types of leaves so the options can essentially be customized to be used for any types of requests that may or may not require approval and be displayed in a calendar.
The emails used for sending out approval and confirmation emails are fully customizable. Placeholders are used for dates, names and other dynamic data.
Client Web Parts
The add-in comes with two client web parts. One which displays the full calendar with all filters and controls that is used on the main page of the add-in and one for displaying Today's Leave typically used in a sidebar on a landing page on your company intranet.
The calendar used to display the requests has views for month, week and day. Filters for department, individual users and type of leave are present on top. Different colors are used for different leave types and pending requests have a striped background.
The requests are stored in a SharePoint calendar list which means that core functions such as exporting items to excel, creating custom list views, adding repeating events and so on is fully supported.
