How To Make Adding a Reason Mandatory for a Leave Type?

Sometimes an organization will require you to add a reason to your leave. This is optional, of course, and we will show you how you can turn this option on.

Let’s begin!

Go to the Vacation Tracker Dashboard -

Under Settings, click on Locations

Select a location you wish to edit

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 this article How Do I Create and Configure Leave Policies?

A pop-up will appear where you can tick the box that makes it mandatory to add a reason

Once done, click on Update and your changes will be saved

Please note that only the user's Approver and the Vacation Tracker Admin(s) will be able to see the reason field under the approved leave. This information will not be visible to anyone else. For more information on the differences between Approvers and Admins, feel free to review this article: Guide: Administrator vs Approver Role
