How Do I Hide a Requested Leave Type Name?

To hide the requested leave type from other Users, you have to enable the “Hide Leave Type” option on the Locations page. This removes the informational pop-up from the Calendar and information from notifications that reveal Leave Types to regular users.

You can turn this option on when creating Leave policies, or just edit the existing one.

Let’s see how it’s done!

Go to the Vacation Tracker Dashboard -

Under Settings, click on Locations

Select a location you wish to edit by clicking on the View button

Click on Leave Policies tab and choose the edit option for a policy you wish to edit.
*If you are creating leave policies from scratch, please read the following article How Do I Create and Configure Leave Policies?

A pop-up will appear where you can tick the box that enables hiding leaves

Once you are done, click on Update and your changes will be saved. The system will now indicate that the user is away, without providing additional details about the leave type name.

For more information on what users will be able to see on their calendar view, feel free to check out this article: What Information Can I See on My Calendar View?
