5. Fill in the following optional steps if relevant to your Time Off application.

  • You can also add a note highlighting more details about your Time Off request. 
  • You can also attach a supporting document along with your leave request. This is helpful if your company mandates a supporting document for applying for specific Time Off types. 
  • You can notify your team members about your Time Off request by entering their email Ids in the Notify Others section. 
  • You can mark yourselves as Out-Off-Office in your work calendar. You would see an option to link your calendar with Freshteam once you choose this option. Currently, Freshteam supports integration with Google Calendar and Microsoft Calendar. You would also see an option to auto-decline all meetings that you are scheduled during your Time Off.
