Using the e-days online leave booking facility, employees can submit holiday requests quickly and easily. This information is then captured and sent off to the relevant authoriser to approve or reject.
The authoriser receives an email alert containing the employee’s leave request, a useful snapshot of the team calendar and a quick and easy one-click approval button, meaning no need to log back into e-days.
Once an authoriser has made their decision, e-days automatically notifies employees via email and updates the holiday tracker accordingly for maximum transparency.Book Demo

Manager approves leave request direct from email.
e-days notifies employee and populates online calendars.
e-days has the ability to show different working patterns and calendar years, displaying used/remaining annual leave balances on user dashboards.
Each time a holiday is approved, the tracking system automatically updates the allowance to ensure no overbooking.
One of the key selling points of e-days is its ability to integrate with existing systems. Whether that be a large HR system, payroll system or even your email provider.
e-days provides useful integration with a variety of email clients, such as Microsoft Outlook and Gmail, meaning employees can see real time holiday data within their email calendar, without having to directly access e-days.
One of the key features of e-days is the ability for employees and managers to view and track shared holiday and leave calendars, giving a clear overview of who is in and who is off making workforce planning simpler.
Having a clear overview can help avert situations such as staff shortages, holiday clashes and upcoming issues much more effectively than a pile of confusing paper or a complex spreadsheet.
Of course, you can manage who can view which holiday calendars if you wish. For example, you may just want members of the marketing team to see each other’s leave, and not allow them to see the finance team. There is also the functionality to restrict certain types of absence being visible, such as personal sickness absence.
e-days can be configured to keep track of overtime worked or TOIL (time of in lieu) earned before adding this to an employee’s holiday allowance.
This allows employees the ability to spend their TOIL using both hours and days, for example half day bookings.
