Wherever your employees apply for a time off, you are responsible for approving/rejecting their leave requests. As a manager, you can approve or reject the time of requests considering a few of the following questions:

  • Are there any high-priority tasks for the employee that need to be completed?
  • During the requested time off period, will any stakeholder require critical information from that employee?
  • Are other employees also on leave on that specific time period?


How to approve or reject your team’s time off requests on Freshteam Mobile App

  • STEP 1: Open your Freshteam Mobile App and go to ‘Time Off’
  • STEP 2: Switch to the tab ‘Team Time Off’





  • STEP 3: Here, you will be able to view all your team’s time off requests. There are two ways of approving/rejecting a time off request:



Option 1: Quick time off approval

  • If the employee has already discussed his time off requirement with you, and assuming both of you are comfortable with the request, you can opt for a quick approval. 
  • To quickly approve the time off, select the employee’s time off request and swipe right.



  • You will be able to see the option to either Approve or Reject. Once you select Approve, the time off request is approved.



Option 2: Detailed time off review

  • Select a particular employee’s time off request. You will be able to see the requested time off date, leave type, and even their time-off trends month-wise. 





  • On the bottom of your screen, you will find the options to ‘Approve’, ‘Reject’ or ‘Forward’. You can also review other team members who are also on leave during those date/s.



  • Based on your decision, select 'Approve' or 'Reject'
  • Freshteam Mobile App will ask for your confirmation whether you want to take that action. Upon confirming, your employee's time off request is approved or rejected.

You can also forward the time off request to another stakeholder or approver if your employee is closely collaborating with that particular stakeholder for a project. In that case, the other stakeholder will be the key decision-maker for the time off approval. 


  • STEP 1: Open your Freshteam Mobile App and go to ‘Time Off’
  • STEP 2: Switch to the tab ‘Team Time Off’. Here, you will be able to view all your team’s time off requests. 




  • STEP 3: Select a particular employee’s time off request. You will be able to see the requested time off date, leave type, and even their time-off trends month-wise. 
  • STEP 4: On the bottom of your screen, you will find the options to ‘Approve’, ‘Reject’ or ‘Forward’. To forward the time off request, select 'Forward'.



  • STEP 5: Use the search bar to search for the other approver.



  • STEP 6: Add necessary comments to share context with the other approver and click on 'Send' to forward the time off request.
